Ballots at Botany Bay

Tim Blair explains the Aussie elections:

"Welcome to election day 2016, when lucky Australians will choose between sending their children to Syria on exchange student programs or slopping out medical waste troughs behind the local dementia facility with their tongues. Foreign types observing this election are reminded that, according to strict constitutional regulations, our party names indicate reality’s precise opposite. Thus the Liberal Party is (allegedly) conservative, no senior Labor Party figures have ever worked as labourers, Greens voters live almost exclusively in dense inner-city areas and these people represent the Sex Party.

We once had a rural-based Country Party, but the name had to be changed because it was accurate."

That would make it the Gaffe Party.
