Tips and rumours

Cory Bernardi photobombs a pro-marriage equality photo opp ... too much satire ... paying for war ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

PhotoBernarding. If photobombing implies the deliberate act of mischievously turning up in a photo in which you do not belong, perhaps Cory Bernardi should coin a term for the opposite. As the marriage equality debate has dominated the news cycle in recent weeks, the Australian Conservatives Senator has unsurprisingly maintained his firm and long-held opposition -- recently he wrote an email to subscribers of the No Campaigners Coalition for Marriage describing marriage equality as a "rainbow Trojan horse", maintaining the"slippery slope" argument while excising his conclusion on where that slippery slope ends up. So you can well imagine he would not want in on a pro-marriage equality photo opp. But that's exactly what happened when Labor's WA members and senators decided to take a photo while holding rainbow Yes placards and T-shirts, and Bernardi unwittingly wandered in front of the cameras -- giving us the image of Bernardi covering his face like a tabloid favourite leaving a nightclub, captured in a tweet from BuzzFeed's Alice Workman:

    “Prime Ministerial embarrassment”

      Fair Go,
      Anyone can make a mistake.
      As soon as she can find a teenager or someone computer literate, she’ll take it down.

    Nah, Caw Cawrey B*mdumbnuts doesn’t do little dances. It might encourage polygamy or bestial relationships.

    But there exists no entity called “Australian Government.” This was something invented out of the blue by John Howard. There is an entity called the “Commonwealth Of Australia.”

    I think The Juice should brazen this one out.

    Surely Borey Carnadi, is repeating his ‘gay=bestiality’ theme by warning about SSM being a Trojan Horse, with the addition of xenophobia for extra zest?
