Thanks Eric for the best laugh I've had in ages. It was unfortunate that I was drinking Coke at the time. Had to stop and mop off the iPad .
You, Eric, have an almost Australian outlook on pollies. I once had my physiotherapist ( a very , very recent immigrant to Oz) ask me why all Aussies assumed that politicians were crooked regardless of their party . My response was that we assumed that because they all were in one way or another. She was surprised that we were never shocked when another political scandal hit the news - I said that we expected it so it didn't bother us too much.
