the best news story of the week

When you're a politician, or indeed any kind of publicly responsible figure, there are some things you should just avoid doing. Sure, everyone is entitled to a private life, but when you're representing your nation, there are limits to what you can get away with. Getting picked up by police outside your official residence, blind drunk, surrounded by sex toys and strapped up in bondage gear - complete with rubber ball in your mouth - is probably one of those things you can't get away with.

From news.com.au:
ISRAEL has recalled its ambassador to El Salvador after he was found bound, drunk and nude.

The long-time diplomat, Tsuriel Raphael, had been removed from his post, ministry spokeswoman Zehavit Ben-Hillel said.

Two weeks ago, El Salvador police found Mr Raphael in the yard of his residence, tied up, gagged with a ball and drunk, Israeli media reported. He was wearing sex bondage equipment, the media said.

After being untied, Mr Raphael told police he was Israel's ambassador.

See, this is what's missing from Australian politics. Corruption, conflict of interest... SNORE. What we need is a nice saucy drunken ball-gag story.

For example, while I know none of us particularly wants to picture John Howard like this,

just imagine the look on his face as he tried to explain himself to the public at the next day's press conference! I'd like to see him try and implicate Kevin Rudd in that scandal.
