Hastie poised to take out runner up in Australia’s sexiest politician comp

ONLINE magazine Crikey has released their nominees for Australia�s sexiest politician and Canning�s own Andrew Hastie is the newest addition to the list.

William Hill Australia has Hastie as odds on runner up with a payout of $2.50 if he wins.

Hastie is hot on the heels of his boss, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull who is the favourite to take out the competition.

Crikey is also backing Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to take out the competition.

Here at the Coastal Times, we�ll be backing Hastie, who has earned the nickname around Mandurah of �tasty Hastie�.

Crikey wrote that one reader gave the following reason for nominating Hastie:

�It�s like a committee of gay men were asked to design a parody of a straight man – muscled, wavy hair, nice eyes, dimpled smile, family man, army uniform, son of a preacher man. Is it wrong that the Christian fundie thing just makes him even hotter to me? Give Hastie your votes this year before he morphs into an unlikeable Andrew Nikolic-type.�

This isn�t the first time Hastie has featured on a betting website.

Punters have an array of Andrew Hastie related bets they can place on Sportsbet.

They will pay $1.87 if Hastie appears on Q&A in 2016, $4 for being promoted to Cabinet by 2020, $5 if he is appointed Defence Minister by 2020 and $67 if he becomes Prime Minister by 2020.
