Kevin Rudd has officially opened the new ASIO headquarters, named the Ben Chifley Building (who was Prime Minister when ASIO was established).
No doubt a plaque had been prepared with Julia Gillard’s name for this event. Now Rudd’s name will be immortalised on Canberra’s second largest building (after Parliament House).
This shows how a little leadership challenge can affect posterity. Look at Old Parliament House and there is a tablet with Stanley Bruce’s name. On Parliament House it is Bob Hawke.
Bad luck Julia.
