Just when you thought the Coalition’s election campaign could not get any sillier along comes John Nguyen, second-time Liberal candidate for the Victorian Federal seat of Chisholm, currently held by the Speaker, Anna Burke.

John Nguyen looks impressive at first glance – young, good-looking and with obvious appeal to Asian voters. Until you read his mail-out to voters, a direct contrast to his pamphlet.

We wonder what message that sends to former refugees and asylum seekers living in the electorate.

Oh dear, hypocrisy much? Talk about rejecting the past…
