Does any one really believe that Federal Opposition Leader Kim Beazley, or any member of his front bench, did not know that Gareth Evans lied
to Parliament over shagging Cheryl Kernot?

And if they managed to avoid knowing, when the entire press gallery was in on the affair, what does this say about their abilities as an alternative government?

I still believe the Australian press gallery follows the correct approach as far as Politician's private lives are concerned: that is, if it doesn't affect their performance, it's nobodies business. This has allowed us to avid the US situation, where Presidents are expected to be either monks or saints. It also has to be noted that this rule also serves the interests of the Press Gallery, as the number of affairs between lonely politicians and randy journalists will probably never be counted.
