The last up yours

IT’S now a collector’s item—an “Up Yours Abbott” t-shirt.

The Perth branch of the Socialist Alliance says it only had one t-shirt left in stock when the former prime minister was usurped by Malcolm Turnbull. The tees normally sell for $20 at the SA bookshop in Northbridge, but member Alex Bainbridge says the last one will be discounted to $10 in a bid to shift it.

“The design is a play on the Rosie the Riveter propaganda posters that were used during World War II,” he says. Since the end of the war, the iconic image has been used as a symbol of feminism and women’s economic power.

“We don’t have plans for a Malcolm Turnbull t-shirt yet, but I’m sure one will be in the works soon,” Mr Bainbridge says.
