Morrison laments 45 years of lost revenue with time-wasting symphonies, theatre and opera substituting for gambling, smoking, and alcohol advertising.
The Prime Minister has lashed out at the Australian public for misinterpreting the function of the Sydney Opera House as some kind of dignified home of the arts.
He said “There’s been a kind gross misunderstanding here for over four decades. The Sydney Opera House is no place for culture. It’s a place for me and my cronies to advertise for our industry mates.”
According to Junkee,
“Everest Cup is not just a horse race: it’s advertised as the world richest turf horse race. There’s a prize pool of $13 million up for grabs this year.
And as reported today, the project — and Racing NSW more broadly — has close ties to some of their most ardent public supporters.
Fairfax revealed today that two of Jones’ closest business partners have horses in the race, and Jones himself partly owns a horse that was almost in the line up.
Large chunks of News Corp — which owns tabloids such as the Daily Telegraph and the Herald Sun — receive cash from Racing NSW. They pay for form guides to be printed in their papers each week, as Guardian Australia noted. Fairfax also publishes form guides.”
Call us crackpot conspiracy theorists, but it might explain the Daily Tele’s front page story accusing the Opera House management of being elitist and Alan Jones’ subequent berating of Opera House CEO Louise Herron in what cannot possibly be described as an interview.
Situation Theatre understands the Sydney Opera House will be forced to project footage of Scott Morrison in high vis and a baseball cap holding a rugby ball at the Bathurst 1000 for the duration of the next federal election campaign.
If you’d like to see Scott Morrison spear tackled by a Queensland rugby player but can’t because he’d never play a proper game of rugby and instead would like to sign a petition against turning our beloved Opera House into the toilet door of our capitalist dystopia, please do so here.
