The Campaign in Perth for the Federal Senate election this Saturday has attracted many heavies from all political corners.
It’s a very important election for every major party, so a maximum effort is being put in and Perth is in a spin with all the political spin it is being subjected to.
I can’t wait for Sunday when they all fly back east, taking their promises with them.
This cartoon is also on the Crikey website, here . . .
They make weird decisions, contradict themselves, receive a lot of public abuse and have refined to an art form the skill of not answering questions.
Very few get praise for the good things they achieve and their time is not their own.
But, some of them are good at being a politician. Not many, but some.
They spin their dialogue, use demeaning platitudes and are the envy of many a Snake Oil Salesmen.
Their verbal output is the subject of this cartoon and in particular a technique which they’ve effectively developed over the last few decades.
