How sad therefore that the ancient tree has been branded as a loser the moment it arrived. Would the Gija people been so keen to send it to Perth had they known that an Eagles supporter would immediately take a knife to it? Well spotted by Ben. Ben says……but what caught the eye mainly was the declaration of support for cellar dwellers West Coast Eagles. A nice Perth touch which will no doubt be replicated by thousands of Asian tourists and their happy snaps. Id have been more impressed if it had ‘Fuck the dockers’ or ‘Barich is a c#$t’ carved in it. But give it a few weeks, the wildflower festival is on soon, we dont want to waste the best material on a small crowd!
