This is one dream I have with alarming regularity.

You know how I said a long time ago that I would be loving the political mudslinging during the Queensland election? Well, it’s actually getting pretty nasty and while I would never put anything past our politicians, this is really below the belt (no pun intended, Pauline and really that choice of garment was very poor if it indeed it was you.)
I really don’t think that compromising photos (taken over 20 years ago for that matter!) have anything to do with one’s ability to govern. And besides, nobody has said for sure that the pictures are Pauline Hanson. The photographer (who got a tidy sum for his troubles) has said that he believes in his “heart of hearts” that it’s her. OLDEST TRICK IN THE BOOK. Anyone who says they believe something in their “heart of hearts” means that they are lying. eg. I believe in my heart of hearts that politicians have the people’s best interest at heart. I believe in my heart of hearts that you look lovely in that dress, darling. I believe in my heart of hearts that I am a good person. See? BLANTANT LIE.
Then the issue with Mark McCardle. The LNP are claiming dirty politics on this one and while I can understand that the events in question were over 10 years ago, it’s probably within the realm of acceptable bagging out candidates. IN MY HUMBLE OPINION.
But the fact that they are searching for things that happened decades ago to hang on the opposing candidates really goes to show you how screwed the Labor Party really is.
