John Brogden, next time you try to commit suicide, it works better if you slit your wrist in the direction parallel to the arm, not perpendicular to it. Hell, with all your fuckups so far you may as well do something right. Sorry, that probably wasn’t in very good taste. It is a shame to see a small-l-liberal in Brogden being driven out of the Liberal party by the conservative ideologues like Young Libs President Alex Hawke. The infamous incident when Brogden pinched a journo on the arse and made the ‘mail order bride’ comment only became news after Brogden’s enemies within the Liberal Party found a willing journalist to air the damaging claims. Apparently Alex Hawke wouldn’t shut up about the incident, and told ‘anyone who would listen‘. This isn’t the first time Alex Hawke has tried to undermine moderates within the Liberal Party. A few months ago, he said that Liberals who “stand for compulsory student unionism, drug-injecting rooms and lowering the [homosexual] age of consent” should go to “the Greens, Labor or the Democrats.” It would be a great shame for the Liberal Party if ideologues like Hawke represents its future.
Bleak future for the Liberals
