Out Of Context
Liberal MP Teresa Gambaro swung the full pendulum yesterday, after her ridicluous comments about teaching migrants to use deodorant were published in The Australian.
At first, presumably before Tony Abbott’s office scrambled into damage control mode, Gambaro went on radio to expand on her theory better personal hygene would aid in assimilation. When it dawned on her the rest of the country was in a melt-down of piss-taking she pulled out the classic chestnut - “out of context”. She even put out a statement saying the story was inaccurate.
Then when it became clear there was no context in which her comments, which included the line “Without trying to be offensive” could be taken well, she backed down and apologised.
