Memorial service

On 7th August, there was a National Day of Mourning for the victims of the MH17 tragedy and where was it celebrated? In Melbourne. What has happened to Canberra, our National Capital? Has it gone off the radar? Has it been cancelled? Do the thousands of workers there find themselves in limbo?
And this isn’t the first time “National” has been misused: All the States have Art Galleries (of NSW, SA, Qld, WA, Tas) and Canberra has the National Art Gallery of Australia but Melbourne has – guess what? – The National Art Gallery of Victoria. Would an Analyst read this and other incidents as indicative of Victoria’s inferiority complex?
