Labor Senator Helen Polley has a novel (and probably deadly) trick for cooking eggs.
Eggs have a wierd and storied place in Australian political historical past, largely when deployed as a weapon towards politicians — beginning with then-prime minister Billy Hughes throughout the conscription debate, via Julia Gillard and Craig Kelly, and naturally the Fraser Anning incident, which threw Egg Boy into the stratosphere.
Bob Katter threw eggs on the Beatles as a younger man, and we’re frankly amazed Tony Abbott has gotten this far into public life with out cracking a uncooked one straight into his gob to indicate assist for hen farmers. Elsewhere, burned endlessly into our brains is veteran journalist Phillip Adams’ reward in The Australian for “Googs. Cackleberries. Bum-fruit. Good egg, unhealthy egg, nest egg, all of your eggs in a single basket, egg in your face. Overegged. Full as a goog. Eggsetera.”
Anyway, Labor Senator for Tasmania Helen Polley has now made her personal contribution to Australia’s historical past of political eggcentricity (I’ll present myself out, thanks).
