2020: Burnside shoots, scores
Saturday April 19th 2008, 8:54 pm

Julian Burnside never fails to come up with blindingly elegant ideas.

Make lying unlawful for politicians? Brilliant.

A must-do, right up there with banning corporate political donations.

Thanks again, Julian.

Just a mo. . .
If pollies stopped lying to us, who would we blame for the idiots we vote for? I think it a tad undemocratic to make us punters responsible for the mess our leaders get us into. Lordy, we’d have to take an interest in policy details and stuff. (And, what about the non-core fibs?)
