Heard at a pub in Orange
“Who do you fancy at the next NSW cabinet greyhound meeting?”

“Well not Mike Baird, he’s blown out to 100-1”

Heard at the Department of Energy
“How can we ensure that South Australians don’t suffer from too much wind or too little?”

“Recommend that they eat baked beans in moderation”

Heard in the Coalition caucus
“What’s Bill Shorten’s plan to achieve a 50% emissions reduction by 2030?”

“Become a bigger tight-arse”

Heard at the ABC
“What happened to the LNP in the Northern Territory?”

“They escaped from the Don Dale detention centre debacle but seem to have got lost in the wilderness”

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power
“What’s Clive up to these days?”

“He’s so enraged at all the court cases he’s losing that he’s probably trying to become a judge”

Heard in a Toorak hairdressing salon
“Do you really think we can trust MPs to vote with their conscience?”

“Well certainly not on issues like reducing their parliamentary entitlements”
