The NSW ALP, is, of course, the “unspeakable”, but they’ve had to become virtual cartoons before the LibNat Coalition have been able to look like this time they are finally going to get Labor out of government. It’s a telling sign when voting posters for incumbent Labor MPs have the smallest possible ALP logo hidden in an inconspicuous corner. Watch for Greens and Independents to outpoll Labor in many electorates, although that doesn’t mean they’ll necessarily win more than a few seats. The “uneatable” LibNats are on track for a landslide win, and all the ALP attack ads can do is desperately accuse Barry O’Farrell of not being clear enough about his intentions.
(*Wilde quote in context: “The English country gentleman galloping after a fox is the unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable.” Despite the obvious differences in situation, it nonetheless sums up the unedifying spectacle perfectly.)
