“scantily clad figures” from movies rated M

The Currency Lad draws our attention to the latest sex scandal to rock the nations capital. The Australian has more information:

The “scantily clad’’ figures in the office of Fair Work deputy president Gerard Boyce scantily-clad” figurines in the office of Fair Work deputy president Gerard Boyce were miniatures of a bodysuit-clad Scarlett Johansson character and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn from Suicide­ Squad.

The horror. The horror.

To be clear – these figurines come from movies that were rated PG-13 in the US and M in Australia. So a 15 year old could go to the movies and watch real life versions of these figurines. But they are far too saucy for Australian public servants. Too much time on their hands and too little work.

But wait, there is more!

Ms O’Neill said the figurines were one of Mr Boyce’s hobbies, but he has denied this to colleagues. Sources also denied that he painted them, saying the figur­ines were either gifts or bought from EB Games in Sydney.

Is there no end to this degeneracy – they can be bought from EB games! Also Minotaur (in Melbourne).

Here is the real story:

… Mr Boyce, a former NSW manager with the Australian Mines and Metals Association, purchased a life-sized cardboard cut-out of US President Donald Trump for his ­Sydney chambers.

This is a hit job. The Liberals have fallen for it again.

    It was obviously a stitch-up meant to vilify a commissioner Labor doesn’t like by trying to slime him. If you watch the whole eight minute interrogation by O’Neill it’s very obvious that she’s trying desperately to frame him as a pervert. All done under parliamentary privilege. Yeah – the Trump angle wasn’t mentioned in Senate estimates but it was the catalyst probably.

  2. jupes

    It gets worse.

    ComCare chief executive Susan Westin told senators she intended to lodge a “WHS concern” about the matter.

    What a country.

    Oh no. What have the limpberals done now.

  4. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Who was the Liberal Speaker who had a model of a Sherman tank on her desk?

  5. Candy

    So he is a person with an interest in a kind of modern art of figurines, collectables, etc. Interesting items that take his fancy. So what?

  6. Pyrmonter

    All of the above-mentioned items are fine in the home. In the office?

  7. H B Bear

    That Scarlett Johansson has some great breasts.

    Did that come out in testimony?

  8. The Sheriff

    The Parliament and the media consider this a scandal? This country is a total joke.

  9. BrettW

    Watched the clip and what a farce.

    At 2.59 in the clip Bernadette O”Neil says :
    “and as I have said I have not personally seen them”

    This directly contradicts many of her other answers where she suggests she has seen them. Libs should have jumped on this point.

    Clearly the Senator and BON have no idea what they are talking about. BON obviously has not discussed the figures with Boyce as she thinks he has produced and painted them himself.

    The Senator is a frightbat of the highest order.

    Since he collects such figures I hope he did not have a Judge Dredd on display.

    Good to know the Govt has nothing serious to worry about like droughts, fires and viruses.

    I have no doubt you would need time off after seeing such disgusting objects Pyro, you poor little snowflake.

    Perhaps you could get together with Susan Westin and prosecute the evil bastard.

  11. Wayne From Perth

    It is odd behavior. Akin to having a Pirelli Classic Calendar on the wall.

  12. Tombell

    The Libs are characteristically spineless and inept. Waiting for the poor schmuck to be told by a government “ adviser “ that HE should apologise. Nothing changes. Abbott spent half his time as PM apologising if “someone took offence “. The urge to be craven runs deep in this mob. Of course it’s Ok for Johannson to cavort around in front of 15 yos. That’s empowerment didn’t you know? ( and yes she does have a great figure.). I’m not sure if this guy’s greatest sin is being male or non- progressive. A close run thing. Meanwhile Milton Orokopolos is back behind bars. Start fighting back Libs…..sigh.

  13. Scott Osmond

    Let me correct you. The Liberals have fallen for it as usual. At some point people need to notice the theatre. They are a safety valve for when Labor moves too quickly and scares the voters.

  14. struth

    The liberals aren’t gullible idiots who won’t fight for what they believe in.
    They just don’t believe in anything.
    big difference.
    They however , do believe in doing all the UN decree.
    They’ve sort of outsourced their ideology.
    Pure human excrement.

    What a country.

    All the Libs there should have burst out laughing and then pointed out that the gay Mardi Gras was just on last Saturday where there were little children among spectators.

    Labor are fake at everything particularly their Puritanism.

  19. Dianeh

    Why was this raised in the Senate? Is Fair a Work governed by the Senate?

    Libs should have kicked this to the kerb and laughed at Labor while doing it.

    I would like the Harley Quinn figurine for my desk at work.

  20. About 20 years ago I was putting up all manner of prints in my office, from photos that I’d taken of anything and everything and varied them each month. When I put up two from this collection (a job I did), some prude complained to management and I had to remove then because she felt they were sexually explicit.

    I wonder if anyone would dare complain nowadays if you put up explicit photos or figurines of participants from the Sydney LGBTQXYZ Mardi Gras?

  21. Ed Case

    Compulsive behaviour from Boyce plus he’s an idiot. Who appointed him in the first place and why?
    If one of the many labor loons on the FWC had a lifesize cardboard cutout of V.I. Lenin in his office that would be okay?

  22. duncanm

    Bloke should buy a Jabba figurine and tell O’Neill it reminds him of her.

  23. jupes

    If one of the many labor loons on the FWC had a lifesize cardboard cutout of V.I. Lenin in his office that would be okay?

    No. Lenin was a communist. Trump obviously isn’t.

    You idiot.

  24. Ed Case

    It’s not appropriate for a judicial officer on $375,000 a year plus perks. And it raises the concern that since he can’t stop himself from being needlessly provocative even now he’s scored one of the best jobs in Australia why was he appointed in the first place?

  25. calli

    We’ve got a serious health scare overwhelming the minds and fears of the general public, and what are our pollies arguing over?

    Marvel figurines.

    Nuke the place and start again.

  26. alans

    why is it all these female Labor & Greens people are mealy mouthed bitter women. Maybe they need to go out and get a good rodgering to get some semblance of a normal face.

  27. Ed Case

    Its only the first salvo in the battle. Labor will have more ammo in its locker and sooner or later the Minister will be forced to let Boyce swing in the wind.

    I mentioned your comment to my daughters and sowed them the pic of the figurine. The 14 yo comment was

    “Harley Quinn’s a DC character Dad.”

    You have committed a gross transgression. Apparently.

  29. Entropy

    I can also understand the Trump thing too.
    A few years ago I had a head shot of Margaret Thatcher on the wall at work, just to annoy all the right people. It was fascinating watching the reactions.

  30. calli

    Ford vs Holden comic characters? Oh, my sides! 🤣

  31. Ed Case

    Nothing is known of Boyce other than he’s a Liberal appointee [and a complete idiot] so why defend him to the bitter end? He’s doing a job that could be performed by AI getting paid a fortune yet can’t control his compulsion to be an office stirrer?

  32. Tel

    The neoprudes don’t believe in any of their own crap, they just throw it out there in the hope of putting their people into key positions.

    Although bullshit is not normally so transparent … on this occasion it is.

    We saw this in Canada with the whole “Blackface” scandal … turns out progressive voters don’t care in the least, it’s only an excuse to make a fuss when there’s political mileage in doing so. That’s how they roll: howl about anything and everything long and loud, see what sticks.

  33. Tel

    Bloke should buy a Jabba figurine and tell O’Neill it reminds him of her.

    Toss a small face cloth across Jabba’s midriff so no one can accuse him of being a scantily clad figurine.

  34. Des Deskperson

    ‘Why was this raised in the Senate? Is Fair a Work governed by the Senate?’

    It’s Senate Estimates. Any agency and its staff that receives Commonwealth money seems to be fair game at these hearings and has been for years, with questions going well beyond the issue of financial effectiveness and probity that the Committee arguably should be focusing on.

    Both sides do it, but one has to admire Labor’s chutzpah in bringing up this matter on the very same day that former Labor Minister and convicted Paedophile Orkopoulis fronted the State Parole Authority over allegation of failure to comply with his parole conditions.

    My comment is awaiting moderation. I’ll try again after deleting a name:

    Both the Ghost in the Machine and Harley Quinn are modern day examples of female empowerment. The poor bastard at the centre of this storm in a teacup ought to be praised, not condemned.

    Plus they’re both total biscuits. Can’t fault the man’s tastes.

  37. Narwhal Tusk

    I doubt Ms O’Neill wears “scanties”.

  38. Cassie of Sydney

    “turns out progressive voters don’t care in the least, it’s only an excuse to make a fuss when there’s political mileage in doing so”

    And it only works because the right willingly, cravenly and spinelessly cede the political mileage to them…..every single time.

    Harley Quinn is trash-can red-flag central. God knows what you’d catch.

    I think we’re underestimating poor Gerard..

    Gerard Boyce has been forced to remove ‘‘scantily-clad’’ and “erotic” figurines from his office and later installed a surveillance camera and a life-sized cutout of Donald Trump after the complaints

    He’s winding them up.

  41. candy

    I thought only actual ladies could be “scantily clad” because they clad themselves, so to speak. I think she is confusing lingerie models with figurine models.

    Anyways, Gerard could have a cardboard cutout of the Statue of David – no way could the Left ladies complain, because it would mean they were showing their homophobia.

  42. mh

    The neoprudes don’t believe in any of their own crap, they just throw it out there in the hope of putting their people into key positions.

    Exactly. These are the same types that say ‘J. Lo’s crotch-pride was a studied rebuke of Trump’s America.’

    The Coalition falls for it Every. Single. Time.

  43. Currency Lad:

    This is a hit job. The Liberals have fallen for it again.

    How bloody socially and politically inept are these drongos?

    This is embarrassing.

    In the office – photos of bush-pigs, sorry, wives & kids.
    Why should anyone have to put up with this?
    Some people come in with a “non-approved” hair-do – why should the rest of us have to put up with this?
    Some people wear clothes we don’t approve of – why should we have to put up with that?
    Some people are just outright arseholes – why should we have to put up with them?

    That is a transgression beyond faux pas. Like the AFL person who turned up to the opening of Marvel Stadium in a superman outfit.

  56. Pyrmonter

    @ Fat Tony

    I’ve sent home staff who weren’t appropriately dressed. A professional workplace is not somewhere to be decorated like a teenager’s bedroom or a university dormitory. Personally, I think I test the limit having up a poster with Magna Carta on it (a souvenir of the 2015 celebrations)

  57. H B Bear

    The Australian rejects one of my best puns,

    “It’s a storm in a DD cup.”

    yet let’s through one about “ALP handbag whirred”

    It’s a complete lottery.

  58. Ellie

    Re the banner – I sent Doomlord a couple of photos I thought appropriate, but they been rejected. 🙄

  59. Sinclair Davidson

    Ellie – thank you for those very fine photos. I am a firm believer in making Australia great again and applaud your enthusiasm for the cause. Australia needs more fine patriots such as your good self.

    Alas – we will have to do with pictures of the USS Iowa pounding the beaches at D-Day.

    Fair enough, but it is becoming a case who decides what is “appropriate”?
    Some hypocritical pinch faced harridan?

    Dress standards can be set at work, for all to see and agree to before being employed there.

    Other things?? Should i kick up a stink if another employee has pics of their family – because i don’t think it is “appropriate”?
    There is an endless list of things that one can get “offended” by……so whingers get to choose?

    You state “Personally, I think I test the limit having up a poster with Magna Carta on it”
    Are you ashamed of the Magna Carta or do you think we should live under totalitarian control?

    Do you think religious hospitals should take down all the crosses in case it offends someone? After all, that surely must be testing the limit…

  62. The Beer Whisperer

When I put up two from this collection (a job I did), some prude complained to management and I had to remove then because she felt they were sexually explicit.

    Bemused, leftist women have a non-financial envy that puts true socialists to shame.

    Their envy is attractiveness. They absolutely despise attractive women, and carry it throughout their entire lives. Their leftism is pure revenge for being hit by the ugly stick. That men like attractive women makes them seethe with rage, for daring to follow instincts.

    I give them one chance to be nice on twitter, then out comes The Simpsons crazy cat lady gif, of her throwing cats at poor Ned Flanders in what is the best gif on earth, for all time. They deserve it.

  63. CameronH

    “This is a hit job. The Liberals have fallen for it again”. That’s why they are called the stupid party. After decades of leftist hits job you would think they would wake up by now?

  64. Their envy is attractiveness.

    And what they hate even more is an intelligent and attractive woman, more so if they are a conservative and self-confident. But in this instance, these were just young women dressed up for their school formal. She didn’t even ask what the photos were about, simply complained to management.

  65. cuckoo

    It’s Senate Estimates. Any agency and its staff that receives Commonwealth money seems to be fair game at these hearings and has been for years, with questions going well beyond the issue of financial effectiveness and probity that the Committee arguably should be focusing on.

    The loathsome Julian Burnside was gloating the other day about the prospect of entering Parliament on a Greens ticket and using this very forum to exert his stupendous brain powers on those poor hapless pollies:

    The 70-year-old said he believed that few politicians really listened but that the Greens were a “significant exception” and that his forensic legal training and experience would be particularly useful in parliament.

    “I think Senate estimates would be a lot of fun,” Mr Burnside said.

  66. Lee

    The Left have become the prudes and wowsers they decried in others years ago.

    Get a life you humourless and boring wankers!

  67. Squirrel

    Looking forward to the Senate inquiry into the sexual objectification and harassment of men and teenage boys – particularly by privileged women.

  68. Mother Lode

    You would think they would applaud his decorating his office with symbols of female empowerment.

    Scarlett Johansson is one smoking hot babe in that photo above.

  71. Lee

    Fully dressed female (hardly “scantily-clad) superhero miniatures and grid girls are not okay, but virtually naked guys prancing around in the gay mardi gras get a chorus of approval.

    What is with the left and their hatred of beautiful women?

  72. Charles Rasp

    Well it’s a toy court, might as will trivialize it some more with meaningless whinges about meaningless trivia. Suits the decor and inhabitants.
