SMH Confuses Canberra with, erm, Canberra?

By threeze - 29 August 2006 6

The Sydney Morning Herald has an opionion peice by Gerard Henderson running today that states how the Liberal Party suck at politics outside of Canberra. I’m guessing he means State and not Commonwealth, but that just confuses me as I thought that the Stanhope Govt. were all Laborers?

Has Canberra entered Bizarro world, or is this just a matter of a Sydney-sider lumping parliament and Canberra together and not realising that we are a Labor town?

What’s Your opinion?

OMG,

We don’t really expect an opinion piece to actually examine some facts, do we?

I hope that we also know better than to believe that when a politician opens their mouth, they are being open and honest, or that our teachers union would tell us the unadulterated truth, and has *our* best interest at heart..

If gibbering Gerard, self-appointed custodian of the ‘Sydney Institute’, ever so much as cracks a smile, I fear the world will suffer the ultimate Cataclysm…

C’mon Gerard is a bastion of truth justice and the do it my way way. Ever seen him on “Insiders”? He is possibly the only person who can give Piers a run for the money in the loathsome category. No doubt in his mind Canberra should be run by some faceless bureaucrat inside the Dept of Interior – hang on…
