Oz MP lashes out at 'billionaire bogan' Tamara Ecclestone's lifestyle

Melbourne, Wed, 14 Mar 2012 ANI

Melbourne, Mar 14 (ANI): Labour MP Kelvin Thomson launched a ferocious attack in the Australian Parliament on Formula 1 Grand Prix boss Bernie Ecclestone's daughter, saying the 50-million-dollar cost of the race was "bankrolling Bernie's billionaire bogan".


In a speech to the Federal Parliament, Thomson pointed out a recent documentary on Tamara which shows her extravagant lifestyle.


"She sets out to prove that she isn't a 'pointless, quite spoilt, really stupid, vacuous empty human being'. Her attempt is not entirely successful," quoted him as saying.


"She is shown supervising the refurbishment of her 45-million-pound home in London, which includes commissioning a 1-million-pound bathtub carved from Mexican crystal, an elevator for her Ferrari, her own nightclub, a bowling alley with crystal studded balls, an underground swimming pool complex, and a spa and massage parlour for her five dogs.


"Of course she has her own daily massage, and her busy day includes taking the dogs to Harrods to have their hair sprayed and their nails painted. The day is not complete without a private plane to fly her across the Channel to an exclusive party in Europe, but she cracks it when her stockbroker boyfriend meets a group which includes a former girlfriend and she leaves the party in a huff. If you haven't seen the documentary I can't recommend it too highly," he said.


The former state MP, who holds the federal seat of Wills, said the cost of the Grand Prix had blown out from 1.5 million dollars in its first year to 50 million dollars.


He said that money should be used to help boost tourism in flood-affected Victorian communities, particularly Echuca, Kerang and Rochester and emphasised that his electorate was screaming for a high school for Coburg to cope with rapid population growth.


Thomson said the money could also go towards putting power lines in bushfire prone areas underground.


"One thing I am absolutely sure of - there are better ways to spend 50 million dollars, year in and year out, than bankrolling Bernie's billionaire bogan," he said. (ANI)
