David Feeney, the Labor MP for Batman, has been copping it sweet for the last few days over the revelation that he did not declare a $2.3 million house in his electorate on his parliamentary interests register. In the midst of a Labor campaign around reforming negative gearing and housing affordability, it isn’t a particularly wonderful look.

Well, looks like the tenants of that very undeclared rental property agree. They’ve put up a sign in the front yard for Feeney’s Greens challenger Alex Bhathal, as pointed out by a canny Twitter user.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, who tracked down the tenants of the house, it was a cheeky request from Bhathal’s team. “One of Alex Bhathal’s people asked us if we could put the sign up,” said Cam Spurr, one of the tenants.

So let that be a lesson to those who would consider themselves immune to declaring multimillion dollar real estate on Parliamentary interest registers: you will be humiliated before your opponents in eminently viral and shareable ways. Nobody wants that.
