Special Troy “Smell of Female” Buswell bulletin. For interstate and international readers, The Leader of the Opposition Troy Buswell has just admitted sniffing the seat that a female colleague had just vacated.
PEOPLE, I WANT THAT SEAT. Does no-one have a picture of Troy’s Office that shows any of the furniture? I’ve Googled, I’ve Yahoo’d, (jeez, I’ve even Lycos’d) I’ve tried several journos, but no-one can find a picture. I’ve even emailed Alannah McTiernan to see if she can get me a shot of Troy’s Office. No answer so far. perhaps I should try someone in the Liberal Party. Why they are undermining Troy when they have no alternative is beyond me.
However The Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party, Kim Hames, has voiced his support for Mr Buswell.“To me Troy’s a rough diamond and you don’t fix a rough diamond by smashing it to pieces,” he said. “You take those rough edges off and you’ve got something that is of quality, …”
Kim, to me it sounds like you’ve got diamond polishing and turd polishing mixed up, but I hope you’re right.
Parliament House staff have recommended that members riding bikes to parliament (ie Greens) should cover their seats with an approved cover as shown below. A spokesman said, “while we acknowledge that Mr Buswell has changed his behaviour, perhaps it is wise not to put temptation in his way with uncovered bicycle seats on view.”
Mr. Buswell is expected to follow Geoff Gallop and take up a university chair after leaving politics.
