CANBERRA : The official receiver of political vessels which have come to grief in Australian waters during recent elections is to be housed in a new $10million warehouse on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin . In Darwin , the artistic, bug-eyed ABC breakfast staff made the above boat out of political corflutes used during the landslide election which saw the Country Liberal Party go down like the tragic wreck of the Gothenburg , in Queensland waters.
The ABC officially named the corflute boat SS Opposition as it only has two seats and that is how many seats the CLP won . The insolent government funded public broadcaster is urging the Canberra ABC office to make a similar corflute after the October 15 election in the Australian Capital Territory.
After the Liberal National Party Campbell Newman Government went down like the Titanic at the last state election in Queensland soon after the conservatives lost Victoria , the Receiver of Wreck has been busier than the proverbial one armed paperhanger and the AFP taking delivery of buckled , barnacle encrusted hulks , formerly shiny ships of state (say this last part six times fast after downing six bottles of Grange ).
The Turnbull Cayman Islands cruise ship is currently listing badly and could end up in Davy Jones's locker in the near future , causing more problems for the already stressed out receiver. Another maritime disaster is looming in Western Australia where the embattled premier survived an attack by the crew of the Emden while he was reviewing troops , wearing a made in China lifejacket .
While the Japanese did not get Australia's submarine contract , they can expect to get a mountain of maritime scrapmetal in the near future due to all those right wingers in sailor suits trying to grab the helm and the growing number of muttering mutineers in the ranks who just want to take over the ship and sail off to the Pacific, to nibble endless peanut butter sandwiches made from breadfruit, swill kava , and press noses with the friendly island girls in grass skirts .
