“In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”
That’s the thing about politics. It’s the art of persuasion. The art of convincing people that one kiss is enough, and it’s actually the other side that’s screwing you…
Ah, such sexual metaphors. Sorry.
While we’re on the subject of sexual metaphors, why on earth did some Liberal staffer think it was appropriate to call out to Malcolm that he was a…
Mm, I believe the word was “grub”, but I may have misheard given my confusion about Chrissy-fit Pyne’s use of the word.
Anyway, I’m trying to understand Turnbull’s lack of..
Mm, don’t want to use the word “balls” because I’m trying really hard not to go down the politically incorrect path of using the sexual organs once again.

Maybe he can get Peter Dutton onside by making Minister for Communications so he can sort out that Fairfax jihad.
He’ll probably knight Abbott just to heal the rift!
Come on, Malcolm, what are you going to actually do with your fifteen minutes? Wait till Burnham Wood comes to Dunsinane?

Thank God it’s Friday.
