Andrew John Clyde Landeryou, the late Victorian Senator Kimberley Kitching’s husband, is a former Australian political blogger.
The couple married in 2000 after meeting at a Labor fundraising event in rural New South Wales.
The couple acquired Wardlow, a heritage-listed home in Melbourne’s Parkville neighborhood, in 2001.
The couple divorced in the mid-2000s owing to financial troubles, and Kitching declared bankruptcy in 2005, selling Wardlow to pay off her debts; the bankruptcy was later dissolved in 2006.
They did not divorce and subsequently reconciled.
Landeryou founded The Other Cheek – Andrew Landeryou’s Blog of Freedom in 2005 to comment on Australian party politics.
Following the demise of The Other Cheek in 2008, Landeryou founded the brief-lived tabloid website VEXNEWS, which ceased operations in 2013.
The Herald Sun’s Andrew Bolt hailed Landeryou as “always interesting” and “often captivating,” but The Age newspaper referred to the site as “dirt-dishing.”
Other front-page stories prompted by Landeryou include a Fairfax story about Australian politicians sanitizing their Wikipedia entries and a Christian Family First candidate who exposed himself in photographs.
Landeryou dubbed him ‘Australia’s smallest loser,’ a moniker used by MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann during his US television news coverage of the event.
