What was your reaction to the news that Malcolm is worth $200 million - You Decide

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“Joe says that he and Tony got the policies right but the politics wrong”

“Their problem was they got the policies wrong so no-one gave a stuff about their politics”

Heard at Liberal Party HQ

“What would happen if the Labor Party is abandoned by the ACTU?”

“Bill Shorten would have to go into an orphanage”

Heard at a Jacqui Lambie Network caucus meeting

“What will be the main effect of the China Free Trade Agreement?”

“We’ll be able to order takeaway direct from Shanghai”

I want to be absolutely clear about this

If Tony cleared up the asylum seeker and carbon tax mess left by Kevin and Julia and then Malcolm clears up the budget mess left by Tony what mess will Malcolm leave behind to be cleared up by Labor? The betting is it will be Bill Shorten.

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“What will be the effect of Malcolm going to the Climate Change conference instead of Tony?”

“There will be one less climate change sceptic there and one more Tony sceptic”

Heard at Labor Party HQ

“When do you think Malcolm will start taking Australia down the path to becoming a Republic?”

“After he’s finished enjoying his coronation”

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“Are we going to be able to pick and choose which Syrian refugees we take in?”

“No we’re obliged to take in our share of those who qualify to go straight on to a police watch-list”
