Gastroenterologist Katie Allen has been pre-selected to contest the safe Liberal seat of Higgins, saying she is looking forward to continuing her work with arseholes.
Speaking at a press conference today, Allen said she was always looking for ways to push herself further.
“I like to raise the bar, so this is an exciting new phase of my career. The challenge of working with some of the nation’s most renowned arseholes is a gastroenterologist’s dream”.
She said politics was a natural progression. “I’ve worked with disease and sickness all of my career. Getting into Australian politics was the logical next step”.
Asked how she felt about spending half of her life in Canberra, Allen said she was well prepared. “I hear it’s a shithole”.
