Former War Memorial Director, Brendan Nelson, fired some barbs earlier this week at opponents of the Memorial redevelopment. An equally sharp response has come from another former Director, Steve Gower, in a letter to the Australian Financial Review. (Pdf from our subscription.)
To date, the Memorial’s council, led by recent one-year appointee Kerry Stokes, and Dr Nelson, have not ensured that the provisions of the endorsed Heritage Management Plan have been fully adhered to. That failure is regrettable. The plan deals with the future of the site. At present, it is in danger of damage, if not destruction. This cannot be permitted.
