Zahra Stardust eyes up Brendan Nelson’s seat of Bradfield
October 29, 2009
Politics requires an ability for contortion, but one of the new candidates for Brendan Nelson’s seat of Bradfield takes acrobatics to a new level.
A young woman named Zahra Stardust is the latest to add her name to the huge field jostling for the seat, which goes to the polls on December 5.
And her pre-politics job? She’s a pole dancer.
Nominations close at midday on Thursday, November 12, 2009.
PS. Did you know that Brendan Nelson is a medical doctor? Certificate and everything.
