Brazillian clown elected to parliament

  1. And with the most votes too, how did we miss out on a oppurtunity like this at our election.
    Then again i think we usually just end up with clowns usually anyway

  3. When I was living in Canberra back in the late 60's, the journalist and satirical writer Alan Fitzgerald stood for the ACT Advisory Council as a "True Whig". His campaign was that he knew nothing and would do nothing**

    He easily topped the votes both times he ran.





    **(it was before self govenment for the ACT and the council had no power to actually do anything but advise - a bit like VMAC)
