Australian Politics

One thing about Australians is that their hearts and humour are always in the right place!

T. B. Bechtel, a part-time City Councilman from Newcastle, NSW was asked on a local live radio talk show, just what he thought of the allegations of torture of the Iraqi prisoners.

His reply prompted his ejection from the studio, but to thunderous applause from the audience.

HIS STATEMENT:

'If hooking up an Iraqi prisoner's nuts to a car's battery cables will save just one Australian life, then I have just three things to say,'

'Red is positive, black is negative and make sure his nuts are wet!'
