C’mon Labor, you should be promoting Matt Brown for his stellar performance combining lewd drunkeness and chauvinism in the one go. Isn’t that what the unions and working class blokes all over Australia stand for.
The entire drive down to Sydney I was greeted with this lovely gem in my Triple J news bulletin every hour on the hour.
NSW Police Minister Matt Brown resigned (read: was made to resign) for drunken disorderly behaviour unbefitting a minister (read: stripped down to his underwear and allegedly simulating sex act on female colleague*). Read all about it at the Sydney Morning Herald.
Mr Brown was sacked for lying to [NSW Premier] Mr Rees about dancing in his underpants in his office, where he was alleged to have straddled Ms Hay’s chest and called out to her adult daughter: “Look at this, I’m tittie-f*ing your mother!”. – Daily Telegraph is a little more juicy
My, my, what an impression the city is making on a small little country boy like me.
Noreen Hay, the alleged victim – both her, Matt and the daughter deny any chest straddling occured – has also been fired as detailed by the Telegraph. With little explanation as to the reason. Is this blaming the victim? Just trying to sweep it all away?
I hardly think this is likely to be forgotten in a hurry.
Possibly this can be a good reminder that at any work function, clothing is always mandatory.
*read: alleged to have mounted a 46 year old MP’s chest area, gyrated a lot and then yelled at said minister’s daughter “Wooo, I’m titty-fucking your mother”… but who really wants to spread these silly rumours any further.
