The childhood homes of many Australian prime ministers have been “razed without a trace.” (The Australian, November 21, 2016, p. 7) The home of Paul Keating at Marshall Street Bankstown, has been levelled and units put up, probably largely occupied by Muslims.
Bob Hawkes’ childhood home at 63 Farquhar Street (another good Anglo Street name), Bordertown, is up for sale, no buyer yet.
John Howard’s childhood home now has a KFC on it. And so on.
In America and Britain, they preserve such relics, but here in Australia we tear them down, and rightly so. The legacies of these clowns should not survive and they deserve to all be swept into the dustbin of history.
