The Weak in Politics
Same Old Same Old
You decide on the great issues facing the nation
Who should we be looking to as the prime minister who can lead the nation to greatness?
– Tony’s got about as much chance of glory as Julia at a Slater and Gordon reunion
– There’s little to be gained from Bill taking another stab at the top job
– Malcolm’s a born leader but has significant birth defects
– Clive would be the biggest prime minister but hardly the greatest
– Bishop is a chance because she’s arguably the only one who could summon divine intervention
Heard down the Canberra corridors of power
‘Did you vote for a spill?’
‘No I voted for a period of destabilisation and uncertainty before I can vote for Malcolm next time’
Conniving with Clive
Clive believes that the only meaningful change Tony has to make to the way he runs the country is to agree with him on everything.
Tony Abbott thought bubble
‘If I change and become more like Malcolm won’t that just make people realise they’d be better off with the real thing?’
Green and Bear it
The Greens have been quick to point out that Greece has got itself into a dire financial state without the assistance of a carbon tax. They point out that the environmental benefits flowing from carbon neutral economic chaos would obviously be far greater.
Heard down the NSW corridors of power
‘How are we going to address the anti-Abbott campaign from Labor at the state election?’
‘Eddie Obeid, Joe Tripodi and Ian MacDonald’
I want to be absolutely clear about this
If as Tony claimed good government will start after the spill motion wouldn’t it be a good idea if the Coalition organised them more often?
