Australia votes: Please don’t eat that!

Good (and bad) food is a weirdly essential part of Australian democracy –
but politicians need to be wary, as history shows.

Bill Shorten has a funny way of eating a sausage, sideways.

Why the angry face ScoMo?

I have no clue what she’s scoffing down but I definitely don’t want one!

Don’t know what possessed Tony Abbott to bite into a raw onion like that … can’t imagine anyone would’ve wanted to kiss him after that.

Clearly Clive Palmer can have his cake and eat it too.

Tony Abbott has an affinity for eating raw onion and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to understand it.

Let’s just collectively agree that we NEVER want to see Tony Abbott eating in public again.

How bloody Un-Australian!!!

Biting into raw onions must be a Liberal thing.
