Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.
His first qualification that Mack [a Nationals bigwig] mentioned was the fact that he is unmarried. In fact, he used the word "bachelor". For a young man to be 26 and unmarried is cause for concern in some quarters of the National Party. But Mack was very impressed with Oakeshott's response to questions about his marital status when he faced preselection. "He told them that his girlfriend was from Port Macquarie but that she was studying at university in Queensland and when she had her degree and had learned to cook, then he'd marry her."
Well, at least she'll have something to think about while she's chained to the sink, eh boys? Given this kind of attitude, the Nationals shouldn't be let near a parliament, let alone inside one.
