There’s utter disbelief in Canberra that Craig Thomson didn’t win an Oscar

You decide on the great issues facing the nation

You Decide - What do you think would be of most benefit to Tony

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“Thanks to Alan Jones the Shadow Treasurer now knows what the tax threshold is”
“Alan could probably help him with some economic policies”

I want to be absolutely clear about this

At the upcoming New South Wales election is the choice for voters either being stuck in interminable traffic jams elated by the fact that they still own the poles and wires or driving freely down new motorways rejoicing at the fact the unions no longer control state electricity?

Heard down the Queensland corridors of power

“Under Labor the floodgates are always opening”
“Are you talking dams or government spending?”

Green and Bear It

The Greens claim that Tony is only getting tough on terrorism to save his prime ministership. They could be right because it’s unlikely he’d retain his position in a caliphate.

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“Why do you think that young people are driven to abandon the comforts of Australia to go and join ISIL?”
“They’ve watched too many episodes of Q&A”

Heard at the Human Rights Commission

“How would you summarise Tony’s opinion of Gillian Triggs?”
“It makes him thankful he hasn’t got any more women in the cabinet”

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“Do you really think that Tony intended to invade Iraq?”
“No that’s much more Peta’s style”
