In an election campaign where the main aim seems to be getting on the front page each day, Pete had a great week last week. 'Stuff up', 'blunder', no way, it's all publicity which is a good thing. I think there will be more of it, by a range of politicians so desperate for publicity that they'll start generating blunders on purpose (they probably already are).

really a clever ploy to boost his (and his party's) green cred amongst
potential Labor voters who fear he's gone soft?

Deep in the shadows, reality is getting very murky...
