Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“Do the people who voted for David Leyonhjelm support his bid to relax gun controls?”

“I don’t know, there’s so few of them around we haven’t been able to find any”

 

Heard at a discussion between Canberra bureaucrats

“It must be pretty difficult working for George Brandis”

“It is but the experience of working for Kevin has certainly helped”

 

Heard in the Prime Minister’s Department

“How should we react if Trump wins the Presidency?”

“Agree with his assertion that the system is rigged”

 

Heard at Liberal Party HQ

“I think it would be a good idea if Malcolm appointed Tony as the Coalition coach”

“Well he certainly needs someone to take the blame”

 

Heard at Channel 9

“Why do you think the ABC doesn’t invite Pauline Hanson to comment when they run segments about asylum seekers?”

“Because she’s not as fair and balanced as a member of the Greens”

 

Heard at a PTA meeting

“Why are private school fees so high these days?”

“They’re paying one set of teachers to teach and another to appear before the Royal Commission”
