The former chief executive of the Sydney Opera House has described the decision to allow the promotion of gambling and a horse race this week in lights on the sails of the building as “crass, inappropriate and offensive”.
Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi disagrees saying the Opera House was built using money from a lottery, which is gambling, and there is absolutely no harm in it... and probably a lot of good.
Michael Lynch who ran the Opera House between 1998 and 2002 told ABC radio, “I would not regard myself as precious or elitist and I just find the lily-livered approach by the politicians on this issue [and] the nexus between the gambling bodies and the politicians seriously disturbing.”
Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News there seems to be a little bit of hypocrisy and double-standards in some of the reaction to the decision of the NSW government.
