Mr Bashful has disgraced himself.
Worse, he has disgraced Speakers’ Corner, and Sydney itself, and all of Australia and its territories. He has disgraced humanity past, present and future.
I do not exaggerate.
Each Monday, on this site, this trusting scribe recounts what happened at Speakers’ Corner on Sunday. He tries diligently to get his facts right to give you, dear reader, an honest account of the day’s events.
However, when the speakers themselves don’t get their facts right, this scribe can be misled. And, in turn, you are misled.
Thanks to an alert reader, Bill Browne (AKA William George), it has come to this embarrassed scribe’s attention that Greens Senator Scott Ludlum did not speak the heinous words, “I’ve always said that my job as a father is more important than my job as a senator.” No, it was Liberal National Senator Matt Canavan.
Holy Moly. Mr B, would it be too much trouble to get your facts right? Would there be any danger in being accurate? Would your arms fall off if you got through an entire session without making a goose of yourself?
Anyway, thanks to William George, this site is now again 100% accurate.
In future, this scribe will fact-check every syllable Mr B utters.
Thanks again, William George! And no thanks to you, Mr Bashful. it’s time you took a long hard look at yourself.
