Brain damaged Burke battles on

The Deputy Liberal Leader, Jacqui Burke, has announced she’s being a brave trooper and struggling on, despite contracting viral laryngitis and tracheitis, which has attacked her seventh cranial nerve leading to temporary paralysis of the left vocal cord.

The upshot is she’s going to sound even odder than usual should you, for some strange reason, be listening to her on local media.

Connoisseurs of local politics will not be surprised to learn that the condition is “idiopathic”, something we have all long suspected of all those who reside in the London Circuit Soviet.

No loss as she talks crap anyway

I thought Burke was bone dry?

Perhaps we could have a RA whip around and buy her a Steven Hawkins voice box.
