This morning we had controversial commentator Milo Yiannopoulos on the show, and with all the controversial views he shares, Jackie took offence with one in particular.
He called OUR Opera House UGLY.
Jackie was not happy.
When he arrived in studio, Jackie made sure to pull him up on his comments, defending our beloved Opera House ’til the end.
‘What did you say about the Opera House?’
‘I said it was a monstrous carbuncle masquerading as an architectural masterpiece.’
‘It IS a masterpiece, Milo.’
‘Oh it’s SO UGLY, it looks like a pile of dishes from one angle and just a bunch of triangles from another angle.’
‘NO, NO!’ Jackie objected.
‘You know how beautiful Sydney is? The light dappling on the water, the gorgeous buildings, beautiful sunsets, and then THAT thing. That monstrous erection thrust out from the earth, oh it’s so ugly…’ Milo went on.
‘Far from it!’ Jackie chimed in. ‘It was, in the 1950s, very forward-thinking, architecturally speaking, it’s like a sailing boat on the harbour.’
‘No, no, no, no, no – I’m sorry, Australia’s such a beautiful country… there’s this wonderful, gorgeous, beautiful city and then that ODIOUS, hideous, just architectural eructation, just PLONKED.’
He continued, ‘The shape is horrible, everything about it is just really, really unattractive.’
Well, they’re going to have to agree to disagree on that one I think… there’s no WAY she was going to win against him after all…
