Sod turned at Defence HQ

johnboy 3 November 2006 5

Defence has put out a media release announcing that the $572 million exercise to buy votes in the key seat of Eden Monaro build a useless Defence headquarters in Bungendore has finally progressed to actual sod-turning if no actual construction.

The PM had some particularly rank bull dust to try and justify the business:

“This new headquarters will bring together for the first time all the key elements necessary for the planning and command and control of Australian Defence Force operations and other designated activities – at a time of unprecedented military operational activity”

Unprecedented except for World Wars One and Two, the Korean War, or Vietnam.

So quite a bit precedented really.

But another year of milked goodwill in Eden Monaro, so that’s OK then.

Those veggies will go well with all that pork . . .
How many more earmarked thingies will Eden-Monaro get before the next Fed election, I wonder?

It’s Australia’s Pent-a-gahn. And it’s going to completely bugger up my view. Already I can see a sneaky dirt road that wasn’t there before.

I’m going to build me a veggie cannon.

terubo, i dont think our dear PM could do that until someone holds his hand and teaches him how to blow raspberries and the naughty axis of evil bullies.
