Green Square cocked up

By 13 November 2008 17

Green Square in Kingston is a simple thing. A small patch of green grass surrounded by some pubs, cafes, and restaurants. So it is with some surprise that I read in the Canberra Times that our local government has managed to mess up such a simple premise. "The office of Chief Minister Jon Stan...
