Weak-in-Politics

Heard in Congress

“How did the Israelis react to Trump’s visit?”

“I hear the Wailing Wall was completely booked out”

Surplus to requirements

Plans for nationwide events to celebrate the budget surplus planned for 2021 have been put on hold pending investigations into whether it will be big enough to pay for them.

Heard in church

“What did Trump discuss with the Pope?”

“He agreed not to restrict catholic immigration from Sudan, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Yemen and Syria”

Malcolm was thrilled with the latest Newspoll standings which showed the budget was a lot more popular than Bill Shorten.

Financially enabled

It will be interesting to see how long it takes Clive to claim benefits from the NDIS.

Going down

Malcolm got a lift from the budget and it’s already reached the sixth flaw.
