Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but some might think state government support for the arts should not include taxpayer subsidies of ballet dancers being paid to empty their bowels into transparent receptacles as “performance art” in a contemporary art gallery.

Despite pretending to be a party of principle, the Greensparty in WA have been caught out in what their supporters and Labor critics see as a sleazy preference swap with their supposed conservative adversaries. How many Greensparty voters will actually follow a How-To-Vote card that preferences Liberal will be interesting to watch but in any event, it is all enough to remind us of one of VEXNEWS biggest yarns when we exposed the indecent liaison between then Greensparty MP Adele Carles and heavy-hitting Liberal, then WA Treasurer Troy Buswell.
