“Who’s getting the Chinese takeaway?”

“The answer is either Sam or it’s my turn”

Heard at Liberal Party HQ
“Thanks to Sam it’s difficult to see how the Labor Party could be in greater strife with the Chinese”

“Well they could despatch Kevin to explain everything in Mandarin”

Heard in the Press Gallery
“Why does Malcolm remind you of Kevin?”

“He always seems to perform much better as PM when he’s out of the country”

Heard at the RSL
