Heard in a cocktail bar

“What’s your reaction to Malcolm’s win?”

“I’m just so grateful that we didn’t endure the extreme embarrassment of five prime ministers in five years only to end up with Shorten of all people as the sixth in six”

Heard in the Immigration Department

“There’s a possibility of course that Pauline Hanson could become a strong deterrent to Muslim and Asian asylum seekers”

“I still think we should retain Operation Sovereign Borders for the time being”

Heard on the far right

‘It seems like we’re succeeding in fixing the hole in the ozone layer”

“That’s good now we’ve got to find a way of eliminating the two worst environmental effects of climate change, global warming and the Greens

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“How will Malcolm react to the move in Victoria to unionise volunteer firefighters?”

“Bill’s already started a scare campaign about him privatising the unions

Heard in the Coalition caucus

“What impact would it have on Labor if Malcolm actually did privatise Medicare?

“It would probably provide them with the only opportunity they’re ever likely to get of delivering a budget surplus

Heard in Labor caucus

“In view of Bill’s victory lap to celebrate the loss how do you think he’d have spent the time if he’d won?”

“Holed up at the ACTU getting his instructions”
