When Chair Sniffers Confess: Troy Buswell Inhales

buswell.jpg A WOMAN, who does not wish to be named, says Mr Troy Buswell, West Australian Opposition Leader, began to sniff the chair she had been sitting on at his Parliament House office in December 2005.

“I was shocked and outraged and I told him,” says the woman in the West Australian newspaper

“Outrage over chair-sniffing incident,” says The Age.

The Australian says that “Just 24 hours after 13 times labelling the chair sniffing an ‘unsubstantiated, anonymous rumour’ which he would not comment on, Mr Buswell finally admitted he sniffed the woman’s chair seat after she got up so he could get a laugh from other staff.”

Had Mr Buswell only whipped the chair away at the opportune moment or made a farting sound as soon as the women sat down things would have been left there.

But he elected to sniff, an action one imagines intended to imply the woman has made a smell, or else Mr Buswell is searching for her scent, marking him out as a pervert or a chair fetishist.

No CCTV footage of the sniffing has been unearthed, which is itself a shock. But the matter has nonetheless reached a head.
