Agnes Shea should be punished for perpetuating a lie, she is a Wiradjuri woman. Just ask her brother at Tumut who is quite happy accepting awards as a Wiradjuri Elder. Can someone please explain this anomaly??

Terry Snow. For services to the ACT through ending flight training access to his shopping mall (though if you squint it can be mistaken for an airport).

Can somebody check the zoning permits for these plaques before Snow decides to build a multilevel carpark, bulky goods warehouse and five office blocks on it.

John Mackay seriously ?

Chief of an organisation that totally failed to plan for it’s own future and turned Canberra from Australia’s hidden jewel into a weed ravaged dustbowl.

All the while (from what I can see) cosying up to his mate Stanhope, visiting private boxes and functions and lording over a huge sponsorship bucket of money to be distributed as they see fit.

I wouldn’t hire him to water my garden…

Yes friends, you can’t spell dishonour without honour.

Jack Waterford for services to drinking and inaccurate and non-sensical based commentary. Wouldn’t p*ss on his ‘star’

I thought Jack Waterford was bad enough, but Terry Snow, FFS!

Skidbladnir 10:08 pm 16 Sep 10

Terry Snow and Sir Les PattersonJack Waterford?

Is Stanhope playing “You scratch my back, I scratch yours, lets put up a plaque to celebrate”?

Mully for services to road safety.

Terry Snow? 0_o

The bloke who Little Johnny gave the airport to in return for services to the Liberal Party?

Who next? Kate Carnell for services to Canberra Hospital?

johnboy 5:38 pm 16 Sep 10

Yes, I was a little disappointed I’ll admit.

toriness 5:24 pm 16 Sep 10

surely there’s a spare spot for ‘renowned RA editor’?
