John Paul Langbroek
There are certain things you can admit to in public life in Australia and recover from. Troy Buswell had a sexual encounter with a chair. He sniffed it, good and hard. He’s the Treasurer of Western Australia.
If only Queensland Liberal Leader John-Paul Langbroek had suffered a similar lapse of judgment, he could have been the state’s next Premier.
But his admission that he spent his university days ponsing around campus holding a teddy bear after the style of young Lord Sebastian Flyte from the effete period drama Brideshead Revisited is an irrecoverable clanger - especially in a state where haute cuisine means you’ve remembered to put the pineapple ring on top of the ham steak, or a vertical tasting refers to the first 10 Bundys of the evening.
