Aussie political subtlety

Totally inappropriate and prejudiced, but still LOL funny quote from an Aussie politician:

Quote:
Now I love the Irish, the parliament is full of Irish men but these are people who canít grow potatoes, theyíve got a mutant lawn weed as their national symbol and they canít verbalise the difference between tree and the number three.

The other parts of his quote don't get any more correct.
