Barry still engages in fewer acts of self-love than the Prime Minister.
A lot of turmeric latte drinkers have been taking cheap shots at Mr Harbourside Mansion this week for handing out half a billion dollars to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, which is backed by long-time reef defenders like BHP, Shell, Rio Tinto, and Peabody Energy.
These critics, no doubt speaking from a state of ketosis, argue that giving $444 million to a private organisation of six staff tied to the fossil fuel industry instead of the CSIRO, the Environment Department or the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, is a bit like giving half a bil to “Dr Joe’s Totally Legit Local Heart Surgery Emporium” instead of public hospitals.
Well now old Mayfair Malcolm has gone one better.
The PM in all his coiffed wisdom has thought it eminently sensible to greenwash Barry’s Wankfest 2018 with $444 million to ensure all his tissues can be fully recycled for Barry’s Wankfest 2019.
Mr Turnbull has assured the public:
“Barry is an excellent organisation with a long history of environmental protection. He once filled up on petrol from BP back when they were called “Beyond Petroleum”.
