The conservative Quadrant is making merry over comments made by Member for Fraser Andrew Leigh about wrinkly rocker Angry Anderson’s plans to enter politics formally:
Labor MHR Dr Andrew Leigh thinks Anderson’s plan is utter nonsense. Rather than waiting to see if the Nationals would actually accept Anderson as a candidate, Leigh has immediately weighed in with his two cents’ worth on Anderson’s chances.
The article goes on to compare and contrast Dr Leigh’s pointy headedness v. Angry’s working family credentials and finishes with this:
Poor old Angry. It’s a shame, because he’s got the bald head right – but if only he’d written more songs about fashionable minorities and the rape of the environment.

And if only he’d decided to run as a Labor candidate – the PR people would have fallen over themselves to present him as the acceptable face of Labor’s heartland, recaptured by the current regime’s devotion to traditional values and deep-seated love of the working man, tatts and all.
Perhaps even Andrew Leigh might have had a good word for him – after someone explained to him who Rose Tattoo was.
Fair comment? Or “flabby underbelly of snobbery”?
