Comment on ‘Largest, most representative’ collection gives SA gallery edge by James T Smerk.

The whole thing seems like a misdirection.
Everyone is focusing on where it should be built and ultimately it won’t get built because the government won’t budge on the location and Adelaide will beat us to the punch.
Meanwhile no-one is asking what else are they are doing in the town (that isn’t in the normal budgeted improvements) and what they might do if the galley falls through.
Maybe they could do something about the youth of town, and make the town safe which is their bound duty as elected officials.
Seems like they can make a promise that won’t happen and save some money at the same time.
