Who was the idiot who asked Joe for a MYEFO for Christmas?

You decide on the really crucial issues facing this nation.

What to you best symbolises the true spirit of Christmas?
Putin appearing in an advertising campaign for Malaysian Airlines
– Julia and Kevin kissing under the mistletoe
Julie Bishop and Peta Credlin spending Christmas together as sisters in the abbey run by the Abbott
Christine Milne celebrating her engagement to a Christmas Tree
Jacqui and Clive appearing in a pantomime together as the Ugly Sisters
Tony busking at a Christmas market to raise money for the ABC

Conniving with Clive

If you toss one of the coins with Clive’s head on it always call ‘heads’ because he’s bound to land on the centre of gravity in his tail.

Green and Bear It

In view of the fact that just two months ago the Greens were forecasting a long hot dry Summer is this the final confirmation that they live on a different planet?

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

‘Tony’s disapproval rating has fallen to Kevin and Julia levels’
‘He’s lucky Bill Shorten isn’t a member of the Coalition’

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

‘It’s difficult to see how things could get worse for the Coalition’
‘Well instead of doing everything Peta tells him Tony could start thinking for himself’

Tony Abbott Thought Bubble

‘I’m having difficulty making Peta understand that she’s got to get elected before she can take over my job’

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

‘I hear that Sarah Hanson Young has proposed that Operation Sovereign Borders should be granted a three month Christmas holiday’
