What were they thinking? Not only does Elizabeth Quay sound ugly and dated, it is an insulting idea that we need to patronise a distant and irrelevant monarch. If this had been conceived in 1912 it would not have looked out of place but now?!

I agree with Mr Barnett "Perth is maturing as a city" but not with this name. It's not the looking back but the looking overseas to a monarchy in this new century. We already have Kings Park, Queens Park, Princess Margret hospital & King Edward hospital.How many more references does a confident maturing city have to make to a privileged foreign Royal family?
