Blog post of the week


I know, I know, I don’t actually do “blog post of the week”, but a post today from Possum at Pollytics is the funniest I’ve read in a while:

The Qld Liberal/National Party recently released an economic document which you can see over here (the pdf download link is a big button on the right of that page).

It’s your usual political document – a big bag of clichés surrounded by pics of working people in hardhats and families with children (!!)

But nestled in the document toward the end is a single chart, although that’s probably a bit of a grievous overstatement. It isn’t so much a “chart” in as much as it’s a data representation so grotesque that one has to consciously fight off the urge to gouge out ones eyeballs with a teaspoon.
