Liberal hotties too hot for some

The other day Young Liberal identity, Tim Andrews, decided to illustrate the ‘Babe Theory of Politics’ by blogging pictures of some of his girl friends (since taken down) . It all seemed harmless fun to me but Pru Goward does not approve:

Ms Lauren McKenzie from Tim’s blog post

But NSW Liberal MP and former Federal Sex Discrimination Commissioner Pru Goward is unimpressed by Andrews’s efforts.

“I’m disappointed that he’s misjudged the importance of a political party like ours that for so long has defended the dignity of men and women,” she said.

“We do need to recruit young people…and I commend Tim for having a go, but I think that we have to remember that people join political parties because of the facts, not the figures.”

Which has lead to a press release from Logan LNP Councilor Hajnal Ban( picture below) who does not agree:

“I respect Pru as a senior member of our party and for her previous work as a Sex Discrimination Commissioner. However Pru is way off mark here, “Our generation wants to engage politically using the media in various ways. Talking about who’s hot and who’s not on a blog is one way ‘Gen Y’ talks, “ Being over zealous about political correctness has put our generation on the outer, “This is an example of overreaction. The website should have been taken in the context it was intended, “The notion that politicians should be androgenous grey suited fogies is old fashioned and sets feminism and conservatives back 100 years,…

Political correctness can be so amusing.
