Anzac stories are all the news 100 years on. But. The 'Australian' red rock in our new national war memorial comes from India! Two years wasn't long enough to get some red rock from an Australian source. Please. Then the architects didn't have the nous to work with constraints and change the design to incorporate real Aussie rock.
We loved it. Standing in the sandstone columns, next to gum trees. Very Anzac. What a fraud. Now we feel gypped.
Someone in the paper said: 'this wrecks the narrative they were trying to create'. Agree.
