Tristian’s politics report: Lobbying!

I’m not sure it’s to the same high level as his Bolt Report, but my little brother Tristian had to write about the ongoing Fiona Nash/Alastair Furnival affair for Political Studies.

Here is what he had to say about that big murky pool called Lobbying. If you have a 15-year-old, perhaps this will help them understand power and influence in Australia!

I’m not sure why he felt the need to colour with highlighters.

Tristian wants to acknowledge the reporting of Amy Corderoy and Calliste Weitenberg.

He would also like to thank The Studio at QVMAG in Inveresk and LiNC Tasmania in Launceston for letting him work on his report there. The LiNC library staff even scanned the pages for him. It’s good that libraries exist, isn’t it?

 

Buy my new book, “Scare Campaign”.

Scare Campaign, by David Blumenstein

The front and back covers of a comic book you can own.

This is my new comic book, a collection of my better work from the last few years (other than Bret Braddock comics). It’s pretty small! It is pretty good, though. Most of it has appeared on this blog, but never been published.

It contains personal stories of people who shit me off — many of them politicians. One of the stories is a thing about Andrew Bolt which won a Lord Mayor’s Creative Writing prize the other day (EDIT: and which Bolt and his cronies had a very entertaining crack at).

The book is in colour, is A6, floppy and shiny. It costs six bucks. Get SCARE CAMPAIGN now from Milk Shadow Books.
