  • On a brighter note......

    Wanted to share a story that has been running in our media about our deputy premier here in Western Australia.

    Mr Buswell has a history of being drunk often, a bra snapping, chair sniffing, dry humping man's man. The chair sniffing event was probably the one that really stuck with him the longest. He apparently picked up a chair after an attractive female staffer had been sitting in it and gave it a good going over with his nose, in front of other staff.

    Back in 2012 he was having an affair with a member of the Greens party, and there were some dodgy motel claims where they seemed to be having trysts while on parliamentary business. Long story short, his mistress from the Greens party, Adele Carles, made some allegations about him 'dry humping' a well known businessman while drunk at a party. This was after they had ended their relationship. She was distributing his love letters to the media and it was looking pretty messy. In the end, Buswell slapped her with a defamation suit for 5 million i think.

    Today, Carles settles out of court and issues a public apology for defaming Buswell.

    It's been a bizarre series of events. How this guy has hung on to his job I'll never know. I guess that politics.

    Bloody hell - you mean a woman actually suffered some consequences for saying something untrue about a man?

    A bright note indeed!

      Pretty sure what she said was actually true, but the court case was going to send her broke for the rest of her days. Free speech censored through litigation.

        Thanks for sharing nawotsme.

        One of many reason I do NOT like politics.

        I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.

            Defamation and invasion of privacy are civil crimes.
            "Women are like that they dont acquire knowledge of people we are for that they are just born with a practical fertility of suspicion that makes a crop every so often and usually right they have an affinity for evil for supplying whatever the evil lacks in itself for drawing it about them instinctively as you do bed-clothing in slumber fertilising the mind for it until the evil has served its purpose whether it ever existed or no" - William Faulkner
