The Queen to Visit the Cockroach?

Some big news for Perth: CHOGM is on its way. The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting is to be held in Perth in 2011 (apparently Sir Lanka was booked but people considered it a little…scary at the moment). So we’ll have up to 5000 visitors to our fair city for a bit of a chat, and the Queen! I assume the only place big enough for this kind of an event would be the Convention Centre, which will make a great change from its usual cheap ‘original’ artwork and cd sale exhibitions. Perth has been chosen to showcase “one of the world’s great energy-efficient cities.” Hmmm, maybe we’d better start working on that then…

UPDATE

Now its been decided that it wouldn’t look too good for the leaders of the Commonwealth to have a meeting somewhere in the vicinity of the a construction site, so the Perth Foreshore projects been …postponed. Ridiculous.
