Couldn’t help this – politics follow up

As a follow up to my last post about Lucy Turnbull’s testimonial to her husband, Malcolm Turnbull, I couldn’t resist drawing your attention to this response, where someone purporting to be the mother of the Labor candidate for Wentworth, George Newhouse, tells you why you should vote for her son.

It’s possibly in breach of the Electoral Act, because although satirical, it also makes more than a few political points on the way, and the “written and spoken by” section at the end doesn’t really tell you who did it.  It certainly isn’t Mr Newhouse’s mother – he has told the Australian Jewish News:

“This is lady isn’t my mum. She would be horrified if people thought she was like that because she was born in Brisbane and doesn’t speak or look like that.”
