The Weak in Politics
The Weak in Politics on 24th July 2015
This was the week when it was discovered that Bronnie forgot to travel on a senior citizen concession fare.
Heard down the corridors in Treasury
‘What sort of harsh spending cuts will the government have to contemplate?’
‘Bronnie travelling by bus’
Heard down the Canberra corridors of power
‘Why did the Royal Commission think that Bill lacked credibility?’
‘They’re not true believers’
Heard in the ABC canteen
‘How can we test whether anti-Abbott rhetoric would work on Play School?’
‘We could try a kid abusing him on Q&A’
Heard at a multicultural conference
‘I see that Muslims are upset because they feel the government is over-reacting to terrorism”
‘After the recent RAAF raids the terrorists would agree with them’

Conniving with Clive
‘Clive’s been very quiet recently’
‘I believe he’s spending his time taking on the challenge of Chinese checkers’
Green and bear it
Sarah Hanson Young has been picking up asylum seekers from the Mediterranean. Authorities have denied that this is a training programme to prepare her for an assignment with Operation Sovereign Borders.
