Count the number of Tory cabinet ministers lining up to tell the people of the Straits and White Bay North this simple little message:
We screwed up. We are sorry. Please, puhleese vote for our guy. We are sorry. We have spent a lot of money on you. We are sorry. Oh and did I say how sorry we were?
Jerome Kennedy. Tom Hedderson. Two classic examples.
Could make for an interesting audio compilation, but in the short term it’s a huge clue as to how desperate things are getting for some people in the current by-election.
