Tree Leaves

The Labor Party's Tree of Knowledge memorial in Barcaldine faces the axe - literally:

QUEENSLAND'S historic Tree of Knowledge will stand for just two more weeks until it is cut down to prepare for a striking new memorial to the Australian Labor Party.

Mayor Rob Chandler said the tree, in the central western Queensland town of Barcaldine, would be felled on July 29 during a special ceremony to which past and current political heavyweights had been invited.
Any thoughts on what would be a suitable monument to the Australian Labor Party? Leave your views in comments.

To get the party started, have a glass of this punch - it's delicious comrade:

Tree Smacker
600ml peach schnapps
600ml apple schnapps
600ml rum
1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup sweet and sour mix
1/2 cup grenadine syrup
1 splash high proof rum
Add spirits then add juices. Color red with grenadine. Float the overproof rum.
