Opera House used as a billboard
Oct 7th, 2018 at 9:18am
 
Sydney Opera House ordered to display horse racing advertising on its sails


New South Wales government tells Unesco-listed venue to comply after talkback radio host Alan Jones berates chief executive


The NSW government has ordered the Sydney Opera House to display a racing trophy with the word Everest on it and jockey numbers and colours on its sails in contravention of a policy to prevent the commercialisation of the building.

The decision by premier Gladys Berejiklian came late on Friday afternoon after intense pressure from the Daily Telegraph and 2GB’s Alan Jones to accept a plan by Racing NSW to promote the Everest Cup on the iconic landmark.

The Jones interview was in response to a front page story in The Daily Telegraph in which Racing NSW Peter V’landys said the Opera House management was being elitist.

The Telegraph and the Sunday Telegraph are paid by Racing NSW to publish a form guides for the racing industry.

Jones is well out of order on this issue.

Some people don't know how low they go & how bad they look when they're trying to save their arse.

Jones is looking to recoup about $3 million that had to be paid to Wagners when he lost a defamation case they bought against him.

The Opera House is no place for this blatant gambling excess advertising.

Sounds like a biblical story ... about the money lenders being kicked out of the temple.

Quote:
The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It is one of the 20th century's most famous and distinctive buildings.[3]

Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the building was formally opened on 20 October 1973[4] after a gestation beginning with Utzon's 1957 selection as winner of an international design competition. The Government of New South Wales, led by the premier, Joseph Cahill, authorised work to begin in 1958 with Utzon directing construction. The government's decision to build Utzon's design is often overshadowed by circumstances that followed, including cost and scheduling overruns as well as the architect's ultimate resignation.[5]

The building and its surrounds occupy the whole of Bennelong Point on Sydney Harbour, between Sydney Cove and Farm Cove, adjacent to the Sydney central business district and the Royal Botanic Gardens, and close by the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Though its name suggests a single venue, the building comprises multiple performance venues which together host well over 1,500 performances annually, attended by more than 1.2 million people.[6] Performances are presented by numerous performing artists, including three resident companies: Opera Australia, the Sydney Theatre Company and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. As one of the most popular visitor attractions in Australia, more than eight million people visit the site annually, and approximately 350,000 visitors take a guided tour of the building each year.[7] The building is managed by the Sydney Opera House Trust, an agency of the New South Wales State Government.

On 28 June 2007, the Sydney Opera House became a UNESCO World Heritage Site;[8] having been listed on the (now defunct) Register of the National Estate since 1980, the National Trust of Australia register since 1983, the City of Sydney Heritage Inventory since 2000, the New South Wales State Heritage Register since 2003, and the Australian National Heritage List since 2005.[9][10]


The NSW Government can do what they want. Nobody is "defacing" the Opera House ... it's just "technology" ... you know, like fireworks.  Grin

So it's a case of what not good for the Smith-Gander is good for the Jones-Goose?

Sounds like a bad case of Sheilaitic (of Feminitic) Consistencophobia - a dire predicament in which, from one side, all criticism or comment is viewed as a personal attack, and from the other all criticism and comment is viewed as fair game...

Nor am I, I despise many forms of racing and am therefore racist... after the scandalous treatment of animals involved - what an appalling (non)decision by Captain Hooknose .... what an idiot she looks now... (still).

Opera house management being 'elitist' for not wanting to lower its standards by showing racing propaganda.... get some painted on the sides of Army tanks and let's light up a few destroyers and frigates from the Navy... that should get the message across... police cars should carry advertising and accept sponsors.....and Parlie House in Macca Street could dress up like a real Macca's and earn some sponsorship moolah... maybe even open a Subway in the foyer... ramp the front steps for sports roller-blading and stuff.... fence off The Domain and turn it into a greyhound track...

I frankly couldn't really care less either way about whether its on the Opera House or not, but thats a Government decision, and the toilet stall groomer shouldnt be getting involved.

Joern Utzon the architect who designed the Sydney Opera House would turn in his grave at the thought of his beautiful creation being used to advertise a horse race

Are we such a bunch of Philistines that we can't see the vulgarity attached to this?

Our Opera House  is World Heritage listed but thanks to Gladys Berejiklian and Alan Jones we are prostituting it

The Opera House has been used for visual display but most of these are Art related

Would you see a horse race advertised on the Taj Mahal? Or the Eiffel Tower or the Washington Monument?

But this is dear old Oz the Philistine Capitol of the South Pacific

This makes us look like a bunch of ignorant arseholes and if we let them get away with this..we are

Go to Change.Org to sign up for a petition which already has 180,000 signatures

Give it to big beak Berejiklian and let her know..THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!

The petition has now hit 240,000 and climbing

Gladys Berejiklian and that creative vandal Alan Jones, can consider themselves 'black flagged'

Alan Jones has already come out with one of his grumbling half arsed apologies

Too late ..to use a pun 'your horse has bolted'

Berejiklian can now sit back and consider how much damage she has done to her Liberal Party..and that is plenty

Facebook is alive with calls for a public protest tonight, when their sh.tty add is stuck on the Opera House. This has a life of its own now

And the momentum will now carry forward with Berejiklian is wearing an increasingly wobbly crown

Labor has drawn level with them in the straw polls

This could be a killer blow for the Libs

To protest on the petition go to

Change.org

An Independent NSW MP wants to change state laws governing the Sydney Opera House to remove the power of the government to override management decisions.

Currently, the Opera House is managed by a trust and executive team but any decision it makes can be overruled by the government, according to Mr Greenwich.


Member for Sydney Alex Greenwich on Tuesday said he would move a motion in parliament to amend the Sydney Opera House Trust Act to "[i]stop the culture of a minister picking up the phone on behalf of his mates in the racing industry and telling the Opera House what to do".

"Sydney is not Las Vegas, and our cultural icons should not be used to help the racing industry make a profit from problem gambling," Mr Greenwich told reporters in Sydney.
"I'm deeply concerned by the political pressure that is being applied to the Opera House."

The petition is still 'alive' it currently has over 309,000 signatures

This is a proclamation of the somewhat early death of the Berejiklian Government

The Public will deliver last rites - on 25 March 2019 NSW State Elec

After which Gladys  Berejiklian will take a Big Money job with the Big End of Town and fade into wealthy obscurity. Having left NSW with a Sold Sign on many previously Public owned enterprises and properties

I was no fan of Gillard's, but that was way beyond the pale.... he should have been charged for that.

Gee they made a mess of this didn't they.

Glady Alphabet getting involved, bad move by her.

Jones Being Jones - made an ass of himself again

SoLow having his two bob worth on the top, why did he need to put the cherry on the arse wipe cake ?

Let me say that personally I do not care either way but find it a bit of a beat up when the Opra house has been used in this commercial manner for 5 years or more and this is the first we hear about it.

Secondly why should the Opera House bee used as a non gambling symbol when it was build on the funds raised by the Opera House Lottery.

That is right the Opera House is the product of gambling which makes this whole episode rather hypercritical, a rather inconvenient fact.

So when the the original Golden Casket was put together to fund QLD hospitals & the Childrens Hospital that wasn't a worthy cause?

And the Boys Town Art Union isn't worth it?

The Mater Art Union?

The RSL Art Union, The Endeavour Foundation Art Union

etc etc etc......

all put together for good causes .... because they can't get enough govt funds.

not merely for the benefit of the Thoroughbred Horse Racing Industry & it's now multiple associated betting agency companies.

I disagree with using the Opera House for advertising, but the anti-gambling angle was just an excuse for people to have another whinge.

Where were all outraged Queers back then?

I'm not a Lefty, I am right of Genghis Khan and I believe everyone should stop plastering  junk on our national icon

Believe it not but Joern Utzon has gifted us with an incredible work of art

So incredible that it is world heritage listed

And what do the wallys and Philistines do to it?

Plaster rubbish and junk all over it

The rest of the civilised world must think 'What a bunch of uneducated morons those Australians are. They have one of the most beautiful buildings in the world and they advertise horse racing on it...Plebs!'

Julie Bishop said that we are considered "the Italy of the Pacific and the coup capitol of the world".

This latest example of the idiocy of our Politicians and Journos ( Alan Jones) display what utter and complete wankers we are

We might as well be back to the days of the convicts because our  leaders act like absolute morons

Even Labor's Luke Foley was for it too, so he can jump into bed with the worst Premier ever..Gladys Berejiklian

All of you beholding to the racing mob because they grease your axles

The people have spoken on this one..over 311,000 signatures on the petition

That's one hell of a lot of voters and we haven't added in their families

You had better back to the blackboard...all of you

The voters are fed up with you

Quote:

*'capitol'*

....is a classic example of believing a fool.  The rest of the World (with the possible exception of NZ) does not give a two-penny stuff and largely knows absolutlely nothing about what happens in Australian politics.

That is just Bishop pumping up her own insular self important hyperbole.

It was promoting its sporting event same as the Gays were promoting their event.

The first prize for The Everest was 5.8 million dollars

For mine it is an obscene amount of money for a race

Even the Melbourne Cup doesn't nearly approach what is on offer with this race

It represents the Great Divide in our society with the haves lavishing these vast sums on gambling

Where is the money coming from to fund a 10 million dollar horse race?

It is all out of whack

In any case racing authorities have said they will not repeat the performance with  then Opera House

Premier Gladys Berejiklian has done her and her Libs irreparable damage with her stance on this

If there was any doubt about how out of touch the Premier is, is has been aptly demonstrated with this scenario

A big part of the opera house was funded by a lottery so that's a load of tripe,

Besides the racing industry and big races such as the Everest bring in big dollars to the State's economy directly and indirectly and the jobs and govt revenues that go with it.

The Rentacrowd's dummy spit was the only embarrassment

Then it's such a big deal they don't need to advertise it on the Opera House - the Opera House is for..... Opera etc...
