    I think Western Australia had “Diz-Nee Historical Park” beat. We once had the lamentably-named “Dizzy Lamb Park.” It closed almost two decades ago and has since fallen into disrepair.

      Truly, that is the Sunsphere of Australia.

        I particularly like how the face of the lamb has been smashed (or burnt) off, giving the place a creepy vibe. That park would probably make a good setting for a slasher movie now.

        I’m sorry to say I did actually go to Dizzy Lamb Park when it was operational (in 1994, I think).

          Ha, I’m sure there’s no shame in that. It does say something for the vastness of Australia that after 20 years, no one has seen any opportunity on the site – or even taken down what looks like an enormous construction of a sign.

          Still, Stop The Boats, eh Mr Abbott?

            *I was in Australia during the last-but-one election, and the only 2 voter issues seemed to be broadband internet and immigration. As far as I could tell, the Coalition’s actual party slogan was “Stop the Boats”.

            “What a time to be alive, British and in Australia, all at the same time,” I remember thinking.

              I did some looking around online and the Dizzy Lamb Park site has in fact been turned into a paintball venue. And it looks like a lot of the park’s trappings have been kept, so I guess the drawing card of the place is, you get to shoot at people whilst surrounded by the decrepit remains of an old theme park.

              The toxic combination of right-wing populism and sound bite politics has resulted in a political dialogue dominated by inane Abbott-isms like “Stop the boats” and “captain’s call.” At least the man himself lost the Prime Ministership, but he’s still lurking around, trying the undermine the government and mount a comeback, with apparently no sense of self-awareness as to how loathed he has become. Not only that, but enough of his Nazi-minded cronies are in office to ensure the current government remains somewhat paralytic.

                That’s pretty depressing. Still, you only need to look at the goon we’ve elected twice to see that Kent Brockman had it right about democracy.

                  …and I forgot about the eye-rolling phrase “Team Australia,” the Tony Abbott equivalent of “If you’re not with us, you’re against us.” BTW, do you know within the nine years, Australia had five changes to who holds the Prime Ministership? Six if Malcolm Turnbull loses the upcoming mid-year election (and hopefully he will).
