Sir Les has refilled his fountain pen and written a piece for The Australian reflecting on the Australia Yartz Council’s generosity to it’s artists.
On qualifying to be an Australian politician:
I had the ideal qualifications for an Australian politician: I have never had a job and I have never signed a cheque.
On his unwavering inclusivity:
I am as inclusive as buggery. Look at all the research assistants and Girl Fridays I have employed over the years at the expense of the grateful taxpayer. Inclusive isn’t the word. I had a nice little Kiwi lass (with a tattoo on her tongue), a Chinese cutie, a spunky Swede and a first Australian assistant on work experience. Due to climate change, quite a few of them were late for work.
On his daughter:
Young Karen, although she is not so young any more, God love her, is passing through a phase and she identifies as a stand-up comedian and also identifies as not very funny.
