George Brandis’ Bookshelf To Be Used To House Asylum Seekers

The very real prospect of Attorney-General George Brandis’ enormous bookshelf going to waste has been averted, with the Coalition today announcing plans to use the impressive piece as a processing centre for refugees.

The bookshelf – which Mr Brandis had installed in his office during his time as an opposition Senator – will support existing facilities in Manus Island and Nauru.

Mr Brandis this morning said he was pleased with the outcome. “Not only will this policy provide spacious, well-appointed accommodation for many hundreds of asylum seekers. It will also ensure that this beautiful piece of carpentry is well maintained for many years to come.

“My only hope is that the refugees who are lucky enough to be housed there enjoy the space as much as my books did”.

    When you get on the boat on the styx river to cross over you may find yourself lost at sea for eternity George.
