Candidate Cartledge on the trail

Just so there are no mistakes here, the Prime Minister on the left is Edmund Barton, Australia’s first; having a bronzy chat with my brother Robin who is seems has lost his shirt.

On the right is the alleged perpetrator of the parlous state Robin finds his electorate in, that is the sartorially outfitted John Howard – the other Prime Minister. Like the bronze PM, Howard has nothing of any great interest to say.

It is going to be a fascinating election campaign, at least in this household. Robin is not given to your standard political marketing approach. However, I will endeavour to ensure he keeps his trousers on in future.

Why is it that great politicians have trouble keeping their pants on?

Nothing quite like an off the page approach. No one wears long john's here - why would you? So it makes it more striking.
