Thread: Prominent Aussie Politician's Suicide Attempt

  1. #1
    for people who might not have heard of this story:
    http://www.smh.com.au/news/national/...?oneclick=true

    News of Mr Brogden's collapse swept quickly around Macquarie Street, where his colleagues had been involved in a late-night numbers battle to decide who will replace the 36-year-old, who resigned on Monday after admitting to propositioning female journalists and referring to Helena Carr, wife of the former premier, as a mail-order bride.
    theres prolly some fodder for discussion here, re: politics, media, social issues, work, play, and the contemporary attitudes of 'stralian society in comparison with its western cousins. some of the above or all of the above, i reckon. and it's an interesting story, besides.

    I am relieved to find the human condition is all-pervading and that Americans are not alone in suffering it's effects.

    Americans are obviously more cynical, too.

    This guy is a serial pest, he has a history of sexually inappropriate behaviour towards women, and an aggressive attitude to anyone who disagrees with him. He now makes a pathetic attempt at suicide, and is taken to hospital with "minor" injuries. Fucking wanker, typical conservative politician.

    was there supposed to be a comma in the middle of that word or something?

    Has he been convicted of any of these serially pestilent behaviors?

    BTW-

    As it has been already firmly decided by the almost interminable beating of a certain (and certainly now-dead) horse, your U.K. definition of conservative does not match our own, thus your reference is not at all correlative.

    Please try again, Ma'am.

    Yes. (Of course you could have found this out for yourself, but hey ..)

    l'm not English, and l wasn't talking about English pollies, the nationality of said pest should have been a clue, so whatever gave you that idea? Oh, l know, American Excess, that'll do nicely sir.
