Last night, David Oldfield failed a polygraph test on Today Tonight when asked: “Did you have s-x with Pauline Hanson?” These are some other lie detector questions we’d like to see:

To John Howard: “What’s in your briefcase?” 

To Kevin Rudd: “Why do you keep turning your back on the Government in Parliament? Are you afraid they might see through you?”

To Amanda Vanstone: “Ha un nuovoro lavoro?”

To Andrew Peacock: “Is it a natural tan?”

To Shane Warne: “Do you really have a mystery ball?”

To George W Bush: “If you could have your time again, would you invade Iraq?”

To David Hicks: “When you say guilty, do you mean guilty?”

To Conrad Black: “Are you naturally a pompous poseur, or is it an act?”

And, of course, to Pauline Hanson: “Was David Oldfield worth the trouble?”
