The Chief Minister has announced the opening of his great legacy, the Alexander Maconochie Centre in Hume.
Or, as Mr. Stanhope would prefer for it to be known:
- “the first Australian prison built according to human rights principles.”
More info on the prison and a lovely picture of Simon Corbell can be found at www.cs.act.gov.au/amc/home.
UPDATED: For a taste of something truly repellent try the audio from the ABC news of Mr. Stanhope comparing sending prisoners from Canberra to NSW today with transportation from England to Australia in the 18th century. Get a grip you big girl’s blouse.
ANOTHER UPDATE: The Indian press is gobsmacked by this development.
