Last week they were only offered a six-month extension, because the building was allegedly named by Emergency Services Commissioner Peter Dunn as a terrorist target, which he then denied saying and then took back this denial.
However the parents who patronise the centre and the ACT Opposition are saying the government should either guarantee a longer lease, help the centre move somewhere else or just build a new ESA headquarters like they promised.
Vicki Dunne has a rather amusing press release on the latest chapter in this saga, in which she calls John Hargreaves “a silly old bear” who’s had his stuffing knocked out of him.
This got me thinking about which ACT politicians are like teddy bears, because Mr Hargreaves is a bit skinny to be truly soft and cuddly. However I was informed by someone wiser that Mrs Dunne should perhaps be more careful with her usage of the word bear, given its other connotations.
