Australian Politics' Finest Hour?

Multiculturalism is a divisive subject; similarly immigration. But when I saw this piece about Immigration I just had to laugh.

Teresa Gambaro, Opposition Spokesperson on Citizenship has suggested new migrants on work visas are not integrating into the mainstream as they should. 

"Without trying to be offensive, we are talking about hygiene and what is an acceptable norm in this country when you are working closely with other co-workers," she said.

Wearing deodorant and waiting in line politely were about "teaching what are norms in Australia". *

Since when has wearing deoderant and waiting patiently in line being one of the 'important norms' of Australian society?

What about Ms Gambaro's level of personal hygiene?  How is it rated? Looking at her press photos, her hair looks out of place.  Is that a sackable offence?  Go back to your electorate you grubby politician!

From her absurd comments I would assume she never smells in public, or pushes ahead of somebody in the supermarket queue like the rest of us...and anyway, who would care if she did?

As for other parliamentarians: I suspect Mr Abbott would need a bottle of Brut 33 after running a marathon, the chubby Ruddy always looks in need of aircon, and Senator Conroy, being a pom probably only has a bath once a week...
