Canberra, a former sheep station has served it's time as our National Capital.
It is an incestuous place full of Public Servants, ALP Party Hacks and Union Officials.
It would be well as Cromwell said
It is singularly difficult for a member of parliament from the asset engendering states and territories such as WA, NT and Qld to even get there, without two changes of flight.“You have sat too long for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!”
It is in the middle of nowhere in the southeast of the continent and serves not as a centre of excellence.
It's Territory parliament is a glorified city council more suited to a small regional town such as Coffs Harbour. And it passes legislation which impacts on the High Court of Australia of a loonie left flavour, out of kilter with the wit of the broader Australia.
May I suggest Alice Springs or Barkly Roadhouse as a more central site for our National Capital.
Even it's newspaper , the Canberra Times is an embarrassment having failed to follow up on the connection between Kim Sattler, a Union leader and the PM's Office in the Tent Embassy scandal.
