Would you vote for this man?
This handsome feller is, apparently, our local Liberal candidate in Maribyrnong. (Thanks to Helen for the heads-up and the pic.)
Oops, make that WAS our candidate. He was dumped for calling a female Labor MP (Transport Minister Lynne Kosky) a 'bitch' and a 'fuckwit' on his blog. I feel the pain of western suburbs public transport users, too, but no need to resort to adolescent name-calling, especially when you're a public figure standing for office.
Still, I could feel slightly sorry for him (who hasn't written an ill-advised post in haste before?) if it weren't for the fact that he then expressed his opinion that 'women shouldn't be politicians'.
Way to restore your reputation, Hamish.
And I hope that any women in your life don't read the papers ...
