Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

‘Did you see Kevin and Julia in the Killing Season?’

‘No because it was deemed unsuitable viewing for mature adults’

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

‘It looks like Joe has got housing problems’

‘Well no bank manager is going to grant a mortgage to a guy with such a poor job security outlook’

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

‘What did you think of the Killing Season?’

‘It wasn’t as convincing as the House Of Cards’

Heard down at the Leagues Club

‘That horse’s arse Hockey needs to get his act together and extend the age of entitlement to cover house purchases”

Heard down the union corridors of power

‘It’s a good job Bill Shorten’s no longer in the union movement because he could have caused us considerable embarrassment at the Royal Commission’
