Politician lowers the tone at brothel

News here that New South Wales Premier Nathan Rees has moved into the same building as a brothel, which has prompted the obvious complaints.

"It's a little embarrassing, yes," said the brothel owner, Mr X [about his new neighbour]. "We're sick of all the seedy characters hanging around. But respectable businesses like ours aren't going to be driven out by the likes of them."

Brilliant!

The building is shared by a mob of drug-dealing money launderers, an international arms dealer, an arsonist, a gang of slave traders, the crew of a Somalian pirate ship and a merchant banker, but the arrival of the politician has prompted complaints about the tone of the neighbourhood being lowered.  "A council insider told The Sun-Herald: "We have to take all complaints seriously. Apart from the merchant banker's, obviously."

  2. Andrew. The answer is - nothing.

    So hang back a little. It's the politician that lowered the standard of the building. Everyone else (including the merchant banker) wants him OUT!
