In these parlous times of terrible events, environmental disasters and sobering economic woe, people need some comic relief and who better to provide it than the far right ratbag rabble who periodically surface from the sludge of hate under a variety of names and banners – same usual suspects, different cause each week.

On Monday night 7th September 2015 the ABC’s Four Corners will depart from its weekly deadly serious examination of the darker side of Australia and the world featuring crooks, sociopaths, standover merchants and shonks to examine the darker side of Australia and the world featuring crooks, scam artists, sociopaths, standover merchants and shonks hilarious hate-group underbelly of Straya.

So brew up the lattes, uncork the chardonnays and nuke the popcorn for Wednesday night’s The Weekly with Charlie Pickering tonight’s rib-tickling episode of Four Corners

With seasoned comic performers like #bernardithebigot, the Magic Christians, Mr Potato Head and various boggarts and gremlins slithering in and out , how could it go wrong?

A Liberal candidate in western Sydney has said she believes asylum seekers are contributing to outer-suburban traffic jams.

”[Asylum seekers are] a hot topic here because our traffic is overcrowded,” Fiona Scott, the Liberal candidate for the seat of Lindsay told the ABC’s Four Corners program.

When asked to explain her view she said: ”Go sit on the M4, people see 50,000 people come in by boat – that’s more than twice the population of [western Sydney suburb] Glenmore Park,” she said.

Ms Scott also suggested asylum seekers were exacerbating hospital waiting queues.

Ms Scott is challenging Assistant Treasurer David Bradbury in the September election. She came to prominence last month when Tony Abbott controversially described her as having ”sex appeal”.

Refugee Action Coalition spokesman Ian Rintoul described Ms Scott’s comments as ”shockingly ignorant” and said there were only a few thousand refugees in the area.

On the issue of asylum seekers, Mr Rintoul said Ms Scott’s comments ”reflected the scaremongering and the xenophobic views of the Coalition”.

”She should be well informed, but she is saying absurd and ridiculous things.”

Mr Rintoul estimated that just a few thousand refugees, mostly from Afghanistan and Iran, would call suburbs in the seat of Lindsay, which includes Emu Plains and Castlereagh, as home.

”She has characterised [refugees] as creating social problems,” he says. ”Western Sydney is full of migrants who have very often experience some kind of discrimination and these negative views on asylum seekers will do no good to her campaign whatsoever.”

And of course some humour followed
