Julia Gillard to be booted out - by The Roofer!

Gillard to leave the Lodge by XMAS!

New Corro Roof!


This has become a serious political football - The Canberra Special Minister of State, Gary Gray, said the works will take about 18 months and cost millions of dollars and has appointed HBO+EMTB Architects the $781,000 design services contract to develop a plan to fix up the 84-year-old building.
The cost is to actually do the work is estimated in millions?????

YES! You are reading this correctly - $781,000 to develop a plan to fix the building! The DEAN Brothers in Queensland could have demolished it for under $25,000 and one of the housing companies could put up three nice little homes for $200,000 each - Total $625,000 and have one for the ALP, one for the LIBS and one for others! Leave Tim's shed there, add a camping ground for Peter and maybe a sleepover room for Craig?

The Lodge:

The Lodge Rear Main Entrance

The Pool Fence looks illegal?
Shocking Slate Roof!
This is the main area of interest - should this roof be slate - definitely not Australian and should be replaced with corrugated iron (in colour if they want) but not slate, tiles or anything else - BUT steel!
 
Here is the comparison if they replaced the slate with corro!

Now that's an improvement! And the right colour for Tony!

There's a poll on the right with various solutions for the LODGE!
I mean the Prime Minister of Great Britain lives in a flat at No 10 Downing Street & then only upstairs!
No 10 Downing Street - upstairs is the bedrooms!
If there is enough votes - we could get some Colorbond by BlueScope, rolled by one of the major (from a lottery), installed by a local roof fixer, and used to promote Australian Steel - easy - why didn't Peter Beattie think of this!
GET RID OF THE SLATE LOOK! Tacky!

    1. Hi Tinman,
      The Neo Roman would suit The Lodge! The article on the old QLD Government House is great! Even looks better than The Lodge! Article here:
