Heard at Liberal Party HQ
“What makes you think Malcolm will change his mind on gay people marrying?”

“Well Mike changed his mind on gay greyhounds racing”

Heard at a meeting of the Tony Abbott fan club
“Why is Bill so implacably opposed to a plebiscite?”

“He’s worried that people who have been consistently referred to as ‘bigots and homophobes’ might take the opportunity to make a politically incorrect response”

Heard at a South Melbourne pub
“Surely an obscenity like the Trump tapes could never happen here”

“I don’t know, many of our politicians always seem to be groping around in the dark”

Heard at a cocktail party in Paddington
“Aren’t you worried about Mike Baird changing his mind?”

“Not at all, the only thing that preserves our sanity and our way of life is that most political decisions are overturned by a change of government”

Heard at a Nationals Party meeting
“I’ve never known Barnaby to change his mind”

“That would take a brain transplant”

Heard at the American Embassy
“It seems that no revelation however shocking can kill off Trump’s bid for the Presidency”

“If Hillary claims he was groping her during the third debate that might come close”
