: Still no news of a portrait from Australia
: to mark the Diamond Jubillee.
: Let you get to the TV now....
Thanks for that. I turned it on just as it had finished but thankfully the link works and I'll start watching episode one momentarily.
I don't think Australia has had a state portrait since 2002 but I've not even seen that one displayed anywhere. Infact, I've only ever seen a small photo of it online.
I don't understand this apparent need to officialy distance/remove all symbolic imagery of our sovereign to the point that it has now become near extinct. I find it insulting.
There should have been a Jubilee photographic portrait comissioned and hung in Federal Parliament at the very least.
