Bollards bollocks up pollie arrivals

By Kerces 9 February 2006 24

There was much amusement among observers at Parliament House this morning as the newly-installed bollards on the Senate entrance got stuck just as important people were arriving.

The ABC is now running the story along with some observations from Greens senator Bob Brown.

The first person to discover the stuck bollards was Senate president Paul Calvert. I arrived some time after all this excitement, but eyewitnesses say the Senator’s car and all the others lined up behind it had to back down the Senate driveway and around Parliament Drive before their occupants disembarked and tramped up the driveway.

Senator Brown later put out a press release calling for the bollards to be used only in times of high security alerts, although I’m sure he took some time to chuckle at the misfortune of those stuck outside before composing this.

What’s Your opinion?
