The Canberra Times reports that the National Capital Authority is hard at work to find a new place to stick embassies joining Yarralumla, Deakin and O’Malley.
Bear in mind though that the lucky suburb getting the nod won’t be getting those lovely Swiss or Japanese.
The 25 new embassies will largely be from busted arse kleptocracies (who didn’t manage to set up an embassy before now) possibly selecting consular staff for their willingness to run drugs, guns and blood diamonds through the diplomatic bag conventions.
Add to this that they are largely beyond the law, and you’re going to have some great neighbours.
Suggestions below as to which suburb should be the lucky one?
[Also for those reading the CT article, the NCA’s predecessor was the National Capital Development Commission (NCDC), not the National Capital Development Authority]
