It appears that, like all developments in canberra that are not suggested by Sonic and Simon, that a call for a Western Front memorial in Canberra has not be taken up with gleeful hands.
Brendan Smyth has decided that it is a good idea, as has Bill Crews, National presidento of the RSL.
National Capital Authority spokesman Graham Scott Bohanna says memorials are expensive.
I say, well no kidding and what is the problem with that?
Apparently the NCA are baulking at a $2.5 million price tag to build one on ANZAC Parade. Given that I heard the other day that our foreign aid is to be doubled, so roughly $5 billion, I think $2.5 million will not hurt the budget.
The final say comes down to Mr Howard.
