After yesterday’s little circus, it had to happen…

I get off the train at Flinders Street and go through the gate.

“Hello!” says the barrier attendant.

“Uhh, hi.”

“Are you the transport minister?”

Oh, well done fella. Hint: the minister has a beard.

“No…” and I tell him who I am. I am, if anything, the anti-minister.

“Oh… I thought I recognised you from the TV.”

Not quite.

I can understand why this person thought you may have minister. The grab was very brief and you looked official and spoke well, as politicians do. It must have been your clothing. While it is good for the PTUA to present an educated and well dressed person as their spokesperson, it can have consequences(spell check) and maybe needs some thought.

Yeah, Daniel for transport minister. I’d vote for you if I didn’t live the other side of the world.

Peter doesnt have much of a beard. Perhaps if you let the face fuzz grow for a few days you can sneak into government pretending to be him and change some policies…
