Rabbits out of hat angers MP
AUSTRALIA’S famous Kat in the Hat may soon be no more.
Federal MP Bob Katter ( pictured) is considering hanging up his signature Akubra because he’s hopping mad about the hat maker’s decision to ditch its Australian rabbit skin suppliers to cut costs.
Mr Katter is possibly the country’s most prominent Akubra fan, wearing the widebrimmed hat everywhere he goes.
“I believe in Akubra ... I remain entirely hopeful they will put Australian content back into their formulation,” he said. Akubra plans to source all its rabbit skins from Europe because it has become too costly to produce and cut them in Australia.
