Hillary Commission or SLORC?

  • January 19th, 2008

Spiro Zavos reminds us in today’s DomPost that SPARC’s predecessor was the Hillary Commission. We should revive the discarded name, he says. [I cant find the commentary on Stuff for a link)

Great idea.

Before we got used to Sparc it sounded so close to something the Burmese tyrants would choose (like SLORC – their government) I thought the change rumour was Opposition misinformation, designed to ridicule the people bent on rooting out any honours for aging white males like Sir Ed.

Restoring the earlier name would be an apology from them, and a pleasure for the rest of us.
