Good (and bad) food is a weirdly essential part of Australian democracy –
but politicians need to be wary, as history shows.
Bill Shorten has a funny way of eating a sausage, sideways.

Why the angry face ScoMo?
First time in my life I’ve seen a man put so much hate into eating a meat pie. Fair dinkum, #ScoMo, chill out. pic.twitter.com/HKYbIAGXXH

Don’t know what possessed Tony Abbott to bite into a raw onion like that … can’t imagine anyone would’ve wanted to kiss him after that.

Tony Abbott has an affinity for eating raw onion and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to understand it.

Let’s just collectively agree that we NEVER want to see Tony Abbott eating in public again.

Malcolm Turnbull sharing a video where he is eating a meat pie with a knife and fork and getting heckled by @browncardigan69 for his troubles was a great pick me up today pic.twitter.com/5kh428HG6x

Biting into raw onions must be a Liberal thing.
Mum: If your friend ate a raw onion would you do it?
