bust-out brigade

20 September, 2011

Ms R. SAFFIOTI: […] I cannot finish my contribution without mentioning the sculpture park. I am almost beyond words! The last time I visited a sculpture park was in Moscow, where I saw the busts of former communist leaders. It is a tourist attraction.

Mr P. Papalia: Brendon’s going to have a bust out on Heirisson Island!

Ms R. SAFFIOTI: I remember it was a cold winter’s day and I had to walk kilometres to get to the sculpture park. I think it was opposite Gorky Park. It was a very surreal experience. There were busts of Lenin and Stalin and all the former communist leaders. Therefore, I hope this government is not modelling our sculpture park on that one! I would hate to see —

Dr A.D. Buti: What about the agrarian socialists of the National Party?

Ms R. SAFFIOTI: It could be! It could be the bust of “Emperor Barnett”.

Ms L.L. Baker: After the castle!

Ms R. SAFFIOTI: There could be the let-them-eat-cake Minister for Education bust. It could be amazing!

Mr P. Papalia: It could be “Brendon Grylls’ Cargo Cult” bust!

Ms R. SAFFIOTI: The Brendon Grylls bust!

Several members interjected.

The ACTING SPEAKER (Mr A.P. O’Gorman): Members, it is very amusing, but we have to get through this legislation. Only one member is on her feet and I ask that you allow her to be heard clearly.

Ms R. SAFFIOTI: I am waiting with bated breath on the composition of this sculpture park. As I said, I sincerely hope that it is not a place for an “Emperor Barnett” bust to be built.
