This report shows a sign placed outside Liberal Senator Cash’s office where the singular ‘woman’ was used instead of the plural. Then a photo of the sign was tweeted by none other than Craig Emerson.
But is it really likely that (a) the misspelling occurred and (b) Labor noticed the misspelling and made an issue of it before it had been pulled down by Cash’s office?
Or is it more likely that a Labor supporter in Parliamentary services deliberately ordered a sign with ‘woman’ and told a Labor mate to be ready to take a photo and send it out.
Because I would think that the first person to notice an error would be Senator Cash or one of her staff – it is not clear they would ask Emmo to tweet about it. In fact they would have had it taken down straight away.
Labor mates. Hanging around public service departments near you.
