Peter Costello Feels their Pain

If Peter Costello is to be believed, some former Liberal MPs are unemployable:

The point was whether he did the right thing by those MPs who would go on to lose their seats in the 2007 election. Some of them have never had a job since.

I have no idea which former MPs Costello might be referring to, but perhaps the fact that they are seemingly unemployable after three years had something to do with them losing their seat. Then there is this:

[Howard] had done nothing except politics all his adult life, and at his age there was little prospect of another career.

A little bit rich coming from someone who doesn’t have age as an excuse.
