Detective Sing and his friend, John, were walking down the streets of Melbourne on the evening of Election Day.
They walked past a young boy selling newspapers. As they got close they heard him call out "John Howard wins Government again - he's secured a majority in the Senate!"

"The boy is lying," said Detective Sing.
