LETTER: No need for budgie smugglers

BUDGIE Nine admit their folly and escape conviction QT 7/10.

Budgie smugglers seem to have provoked negative comments over the years, as in Tony Abbott's wearing of them and the following cartoon overdoses.

I think all Australian budgies would like to see these smuggler swimming trunks wing their way off into the distance somewhere.
