And the hits just keep on coming. The LNP's member for Dawson (via Manila) George Christensen has, along with NRL-player-turned-councillor Martin Bella, successfully called for the removal of two works by Sydney artist Abdul Abdullah from a council-run gallery in northern Queensland.

The artworks depicted soldiers with smiley faces painted over their faces. According to Christensen, taxpayers shouldn't be subsidising such "political messages that attacked soldiers".
