OZ politics

While the world was watching what would happen next in the "Mr. Pope" vs Muslims saga, here in OZ Greg Smith beat the former Sex-Discrimination Commisioner, Pru Goward in the Liberal Party preselection for the safe seat of Epping. It is the the NSW State Parliament which I (being in SA) have no strict interest in except for the fact that Smith is a Catholic and a high-profile "anti-abortion campaigner" as the papers have constantly put it.

The SMH, which appeared to be backing Pru, reports that it was comprehensive win but also that Goward is likely to now be preselected for another NSW seat.

You can read Goward's profile here.
