Former Veterans Affairs Minister Danna Vale has a novel, bold plan. She wants to bring Gallipoli to Australia, replicated in a memorial park on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
"[But you could re-create the site] for educational opportunities for young children and schools to visit, and for veterans to have as a memorial site at appropriate occasions." – Danna Vale.
I’m amazed that the PM is against her idea. This from a man who is flogging WorkChoices, which will not guarentee the Anzac day (or christmas) public holiday. Under HoWARd’s WorkChoices, the reality of Australians taking a long weekend is as fake as Gallipoli Victoria would be.
Let’s put on our disruptive patterns, be inspired by the Anzac spirit and defeat the enemy sneakily parading as WorkChoices.
