The gambling-sponsored state of NSW is currently undergoing fierce debates over controversial plans to use Australia’s most iconic piece of architectural ingenuity as a “billboard” for a car that one of Alan Jones’ old footy mates is trying to flog off before the end of the year.
Tens of thousands of people are now petitioning to block a plan to use the Sydney Opera House to promote Alan Jones’s mate Kerrod’s 2008 Toyota Landcruiser White Manual Cab Chassis -after the Prime Minister said he thought it was a “no-brainer”.
“It’s not like they’re painting it on there. I mean, it’s lights flashing up there for a brief moment of time,” Scott Morrison told 2GB this morning.
“I don’t understand why we tie ourselves up in knots about these things. Alan has a mate that is trying to flog off a car, and his mate has asked Alan to demand that the directors of Australia’s most iconic landmark do exactly what he wants”
Luckily for Jones, after signs of slight reluctance from the Opera House, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian pulled rank on Friday and demanded that management allow Alan Jones’ mate to use their iconic sails as a billboard for his own personal interests.
“It’s not a bad car” said Berejiklian.
“If the tax-payer didn’t already fund my lifestyle and travel, I’d probably be hitting up Mike for a loan and buying it myself”
