The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Voting with the Blue Bloods of Lorne

Polling Day in LorneUp around the corner from the Lorne Polling Booth (in Corangamite) this morning about 20 cars (every second one European) were parked along the yellow lined No Standing at Anytime shoulder of the only walkable uphill road in Lorne. Lorne, not being in a marginal seat, only has foot paths on the main street and near the school. Inside the Senior Citizens building a queue of older boomer voters, with weekend shirts neatly tucked inside comfortable blue jeans or slacks hauled by a belt to the upper waist, waited patiently clutching their one and only Liberal How To Vote Card as if their lives depended on it.

A perfect illustration of life in Lorne, where things like road safety rules or planning regulations are only for other people.

As I left I smiled at the Kevin07 girls and remarked “You’ve got your work cut out here!”

“That’s for sure!” They smiled back.

While taking the above photo, two out of town bogan couples in their late teens staggered past. One bloke, with left arm around his girlfriend (for support more than affection) and VB can in the other, informed his companions, “Well I’m not voting for The Greens! Fuck that!”  I guess he’ll vote for The Economy, nit understanding that the people he votes for couldn’t give a rats about him and will happily screw over his working conditions for good measure.

Pure gold!

  3. I copped some drive by abuse by a group off pissed young idiots at the Torquay booth. they were in a ute with tons of stickers indicating their love for australia, their love for vb and bundy, and their racist attitudes.

    As Dean Wormer said to Flounder in Animal House, “Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life boy”.
