源于生活

Warren Truss,现任澳大利亚副总理。联盟党在最近一次大选中获胜后成功上台,自由党领袖Tony Abott自然就是担任总理,国家党领袖Warren Truss则出任副职。

最近重温连续剧Lost,在第一季中有这样一段:

CALDERWOOD: You know who you head-butted in that bar? You head-butted the Honorable Warren Truss. Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Forestry. One of the most important -

SAWYER: He head-butted me.

CALDERWOOD: We have witnesses he did no such thing.

SAWYER: Of course.

CALDERWOOD: You think this is funny... James? James Ford -- assault, wire fraud, identity theft, bank fraud, telemarketing fraud --

SAWYER: Is this going someplace?

CALDERWOOD: You're a blight, a stain, a scavenger. You're a con man who preys on the weak and the needy. Tell me something, James -- how do you live with yourself?

SAWYER: I do just fine.

CALDERWOOD: Do you? You're not even worth what it would cost us to incarcerate you, which is why you're being deported. Your plane leaves this afternoon. And, James -- you're banned from ever setting foot in Australia again.

SAWYER: Don't you worry. I ain't never coming back here.

在现实生活中,Warren Truss确实当过一段时间的(影子)Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Forestry,不过当迷失第一季播出的时候,他已经晋升为国家党领袖了。

我很奇怪为什么电视剧要提及WT的名字,google了一下不得要领。看样子要存疑留待日后有机会深入研究。
