With apologies to Catullus on Aemilius
Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-08-25
In all honesty I can’t tell the difference between the stench of corruption from Australia’s Labor and that from the Libs.
The stench of one equals the filth of the other.
Actually, the Libs are probably now the cleaner of the two, for they’re without teeth, while the policy teeth of Labor are twisted and dark, emerging from the cleft tongues of leaders with morning-mouth reek after all-night sessions with the big knobs in town.
Yet they tout themselves ethical, getting nearly all votes, the plaudits of pundits and are never called to task for dirty dealings and broken promises.
Whoever votes for either of the majors is equally capable of believing the gutter press and the media releases of James Hardie.
Actually, the more R-rated imagery of Catullus 97 may better reflect my disgust.
