A hard game

Thanks to my friend Fionie for this picture!

As Fionie says, Politics is a hard game, but funny.

Verity Firth is the member for Balmain. She is also Education Minister in the state governmnet. There is a state election on 22 March, which the government is widely tipped to lose, in a big way.

Recently, Ms Firth's husband was arrested and charged with drug possession of an ecstacy tablet.  See story here.

Ms Firth is under strong challenge in her electorate from local Mayor and candidate for The Greens, Jaimie Parker.

Election posters in her electorate have had the letters V-RITY blacked out, so her campaign slogan, "KEEP VERITY" now reads "KEEP E".
