Shortarse is just another labor party union rat. Labor party is 99% union rats. Blokes and sheilas who have sat on there arses at uni probably smoking dope and plagiarizing some hard working students assignments, getting a degree by false pretence,then getting into some union as a delegate or whatever, and sitting there till some useless labor polly resigns,and getting into an allmight dog fight with some other nohoper for the seat in parliament. To many Irish C#$ts in unions too.The irish are lazy if it was wasn't for the pommies they would be dead. Ireland would be a good place to sent a million black africans males to breed out the irish.
