The story starts here...

Heard in the PM’s Office
“The Senate is in an utter shambles”

“Just so I’m absolutely clear is that an improvement?”

Heard at the Department of Immigration
“Malcolm is proposing that asylum seekers from Manus Island and Nauru should never be allowed to settle in Australia”

“Well someone’s got to protect them from Pauline Hanson”

Heard in a Canberra restaurant
“Do you think Bill Clinton could have handled the role as the President’s partner?”

“Well possibly but he’d have needed some mentoring from the First Bloke”

I want to be absolutely clear about this
Is a Bill Leak preferable to all the pissing around at the Human Rights Commission?

Heard at Liberal Party HQ
“Do you think Malcolm will appoint Tony as Minister for Aboriginal Affairs?”

“No because it would cause Gillian Triggs to charge them both under Section 18C”

Heard at the Australian Embassy in Wahington
“Do you think there’s a chance that a Hillary Presidency would have been impaired?”

“I think there’s a much better chance it would have been impeached”
