The best rumour from Budget week in Canberra has nothing to do with the Budget – but what a rumour it is!

of the pollies who occupies one of the prized “TV spots” behind the
Prime Minister – the positions where you always show up in the shots of
Question Time on the TV news, boosting your recognition rating no end –
is thinning on top.

And the story says that this pollie has been
noticed. By a hair replacement company. Who is now assisting him.
Whether he is paying or not – or if they are paying him – is where
things get a little – well – hairy.

We all know the political
ego is a strange thing, but surely the potential for embarrassment here
is enormous – worse than a toupee blowing off in the wind.
