Look if you're going to be a would-be Liberal powerbroker, you absolutely have to have a name like Marcus Bastiaan. Isn't it great? It's like being called "Person Bastard" or something.

It sounds like the name of a firm that makes steel dildos. The aforementioned Bastiaan has now quit the Victorian Liberal Party at the age of 30, having created a powerful network of religious "social conservatives" in branches across the state.
