The pig is on the spit, slowly turning, basted at regular intervals. The customary apple in the pig's mouth is looking shiny and the minions, staring at the rotating chunk of pork, are salivating. All of a sudden, due to the lack of foresight and failure to maintain the equipment, the spike falls out of the rotisserie and the pig falls on the coals. That's how I look at the story of the cynical vote buy in Batman and the in-trouble ALP candidate's breathless media release stating that an ALP government would extend the route 11 tram.
