Madame Tussauds Stops Work On Malcolm Turnbull Wax Figure Supplied

In breaking news, Madame Tussauds has stopped work on the wax figure of Malcolm Turnbull in light of the #libspill drama.

The wax creation was to be a part of the Madame Tussauds Sydney exhibition as a part of the World Leaders room, but work has stopped immediately following the battle for the PM spot.

“This isn’t the first time we’ve made the decision to stop creating an Australian political leader due to their premature exit from office," Madame Tussauds general manager Mark Connolly said.

"In 2013, just weeks after work began creating Kevin Rudd’s figure, the team were advised to stop work.

"Again in 2015, when Tony Abbott was voted out by his fellow MPs, we made the decision to stop work.

"Due to the high turnover of Prime Ministers we cannot see ourselves making a figure of a sitting Australian Prime Minister again.     

“We want to ensure Madame Tussauds Sydney’s World Leaders room remains current and relevant to our local and international guests and not a room full of retired Prime Ministers, which has prompted our decision to put a halt on making figures of Australian Prime Ministers, we hope there are no hard feelings.”
