Australian Prime Minister Changed Too Frequently, Madame Tussaud's Said We Quit!
- Aug 27, 2018 -

On August 24, former Australian Prime Minister Turnbull was forced to resign as Prime Minister by three of his men. But Australians say they're used to it because Australia has changed its leaders six times in the past eight years, with an average of more than a year, and no one has been able to hold a full term as Prime Minister for a long time. This speed has frustrated the Madame Tussauds in Sydney because they can't make wax figurines as fast as Australian prime ministers can rotate.


Turnbull's wax statue would have been the next work at Madame Tussauds'World Leaders' Conference Room in Sydney. The General Manager of the Sydney Wax Museum said that the wax figure of Turnbull was scheduled to be completed on October 24 this year, and was personally unveiled by Turnbull on his 64th birthday. But Turnbull couldn't stay in the prime minister's office until then, so we had to ask the team to stop making wax figurines because we didn't want the "World Leaders'Conference Room" filled with the wax figurines of Australia's outgoing prime minister.


"We don't think we can make a wax figure as fast as the prime minister can change it because the Prime Minister of Australia changes too frequently," said the general manager of Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. "So we decided to stop making wax figures for the prime ministers of Australia. Right, we stopped."


Since 2010, only one Australian Prime Minister's wax figure has been successfully unveiled, namely former Australian Prime Minister Gillard, who made a successful appearance in 2012, while the other Australian Prime Ministers'wax figures have not been able to meet the audience.
