Grassby memorial for Civic

By kimba 23 March 2006 22

Went and watched Page8 last night, it was an exceptional production.

I also met someone there who is sculpting a statue of Al Grassby. Apparently the statue will be placed in Civic Square. I didn’t hear anything about this and was wondering what others thought about the idea – perhaps controversial or is it a deserving tribute? I understand the people in Griffith, NSW howled down the suggestion for a memorial in that town.

Personally, I knew Al and liked him but there must be many others people more deserving of this accolade. We don’t even have statues for Menzies or Curtin in our fair city!

Sadly, I can’t help but feel this is just another politically correct exercise by the Stanhope government.

What’s Your opinion?

When Stanhope falls we should take Grassby’s statue and install it outside the gates of the Alexander Maconochie Centre. At least he’ll be close to where he should have been.
