Don’t make Nick off!

August 20, 2017

Gilbert and Sullivan, those musical masters of the ridiculous, would probably have turned down any idea of writing a comic opera on the ludicrous scenario being played out on the Federal politics scene…on the grounds that it was just  TOO improbable.

Just when you were thinking that things could not get any sillier citizenship-wise , they have.. with Mr X, aka Nick Xenophon, taking a star role in the stupendously stupid saga surrounding our Federal leaders.

My contact with the X family is peripheral. A spot of volunteer staffing of a polling booth at Parkside Primary School a decade or two ago. The regular  sharing of a blackjack table on North Terrace with serial gambler and dad Mr Xenophou (why did Nick bother to tweak his name but never check up on his political suitability?).

The whole muddy nationality morass will doubtless  claim more victims. One can only hope that the most recent suspect will not have to nick off.
