Sweet holy jesus.
Check out this rant from near-run ACT political candidate and 2CC morning presenter Mark Parton.
Here’s some of my favourite highlights:
- The youth of our nation are out of control. The jackass generation who believe that it’s really funny when someone else gets hurt have no fear of the law…
They must have felt like Aussie soldiers marching into a Taliban stronghold…

We’ve got some problems in this country of ours.
Because the kids in this country were always little angels and never caused any trouble in the past eh Mark?
Either he’s inciting inter-generational hatred for cheap ratings points, or he’s woefully ignorant of Australian history.
UPDATED: Joebananas posted the below text as a story just as I was posting this one. I’ve added it here as I don’t think Mark’s ego could handle two stories about him in the one day:
- I was amused to hear Mark Parton on 2cc just before 10am today sign off an interview with the following:
‘And that was Jeremy Hanson, one of the new members of our pretend parliament’.
So what does that make Mr Parton? A failed pretender to the pretend parliament who is no longer pretending to be a pretender? If he runs again next time will it just be a pretense? Was he pretending all along?
And I notice his website is still up. He says a lot of passionate stuff on there for someone who thinks the whole thing is a joke.
