"I just wish I had the time over again. I've made some mistakes in my life but that one really was the crowning glory of all mistakes... They (his advisers) told me what it was about and it sounded all right to me. I personally was the experienced politician, I let the ad go and I suppose in that sense I did agree to it and that will just have to be one of the regrets I carry for the rest of my days."

-- Conservative Australian politician Bob Katter during an interview at the Sydney Writers' Festival. The Queensland MP's Australian Party lost 7% of their first-preference votes - or 15 seats - because of the public's negative reaction to an anti-marriage equality ad he allowed to run.
