BRICKBATS FOR HAT

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

CER­TI­FIED LEGO pro­fes­sion­als Brick­man have made a 3.6m by 2.4m model of Par­lia­ment House to cel­e­brate its 30th birth­day. ( Yes, hasn’t that 30 years flown?) It’s pretty good and you can see it on Google. I bring it up be­cause North Queens­land politi­cian Bob Kat­ter fea­tures in one of the dis­plays. There he is ( pic­tured) talk­ing no doubt about crocs and sharks to a pas­sel of be­daz­zled re­porters at Par­lia­ment House.

Look closely and you will see Brick­man has decked Bob out in a sil­ver, flat- brimmed hat rather than the western- themed “cow­bey” num­ber he al­ways wears.

In Bob’s home town of Clon­curry, putting a bloke in a flat brim hat when he al­ways wears a curly brim western num­ber is a hang­ing of­fence. Word is Bob’s look­ing for a rope and low branch.
