Who is Joy Birch?

Pork Hunt has noticed that the plaque for the newest piece of public art in Civic proclaims it was launched (unveiled surely) by a “Joy Birch”.

We’ve enquired of Joy Burch’s office what’s being done and how much it’s going to cost and will let you know.

This from the office that produced the Rolltide tweet.


The plaque that is currently there was only ever meant to be temporary one. A more permanent will be installed soon-with the correct name.

The temporary plaque process intrigued us so we asked for more details to this response:

I would have to get some advice on that-not my normal area of expertise. I will see what I can find out.

We look forward to hearing all about it.


UPDATE 05/12/12 14:30: This explanation has now arrived:

So some further information on Plaques.

For all public artworks we install bronze plaques, these plaques take about 4 weeks to make and install. Given that for many public art launches the date of final installation and unveiling is not always known that far in advance we install temporary plaques for the purposes of the ceremony.

For the Other Side of Midnight a permanent plaque has been ordered and the supplier is pursuing with the foundry to have this available prior to Christmas.

What’s Your opinion?

Why do they feel as if they have to lie?

How about the truth? Someone stuffed up, sorry, we’ll fix it.

Not some obvious bullshit about temporary plaques.

Seriously. Lying is just digging the hole deeper. You stuffed up, someone relied a little too much on spell-check, mistakes were made, move on. Instead, you come up with the most blatant bloody lie?

Joy Burch could just decide that she doesn’t care that much that she’ll spend taxpayer money to replace the plaque. I think that decision would be well received.

‘…only ever meant to be temporary…’

What a load of cobblers. I say that as someone who spent a few years as a public servant looking after road projects that often involved an opening and a plaque.

what a bulls*** excuse

Now with a response of sorts from the Minister’s office.

It should stay as it is. (or changed at cost to her)

Calm down everyone.

Did she push it out to see, or fire it into space?

But she won’t be able to sack the poor worker who screwed up because they have some issues outside work that are causing them lots of stress and disciplinary action will only inflame the situation to the point that they will have to sue the government department for harassment……

This really, really pisses me off.

The plaque will have to be re-made, and some proofreading incompetent will be told to lift his/her game.

Meanwhile, the citzens of Canberra will be required to cough up another $grand to remove and replace the rubbish installed.

Cos these things are normally glued so that they are really dificult to remove.

Damn right. Poofreading is really important.

Totally agree. You’d think they can get their freaking Minister’s name correct given they work for her.
