Trades Hall is selling a piece of Victoria’s recent political history.

‘Pinchy’, the 4.5 metre tall inflatable lobster was a fixture at many a Matthew Guy appearance throughout the election.

Luke Hilakari, Secretary of Trades Hall Council, told Tom Elliott Pinchy originally cost about $500.

“He was a bargain!” Luke said.

“Pinchy has been a dearly loved friend of the union movement.
