the baggy trousered misanthropist

missives issued from the lair

If you’re the leader of an opposition party, no one would blame you for thinking all your Christmases had come at once if it transpired that a high profile member of the incumbent coalition had been caught sending misogynistic text messages to a colleague and was subsequently accused of sexual harassment.

Expect Australia’s Paul Abbott to be a little more cautious before prodding wounded PM Julia Gillard next time though. During Prime Minister’s Question Time today, Gillard responded to Abbott’s calls for the resignation of Peter Slipper with a  flaming of his hypocrisy so comprehensive, it’ll be a week or so before he gets the stink of burning flesh out of his suit.

Slipper has now resigned. After you’ve seen the video, you wonder if anyone actually still cares.
