“How’s Peter Dutton progressing with the arrangements to bring in Syrian refugees?”

“I understand he’s currently taking bookings for 2085”

Heard in the Labor caucus

“Malcolm’s latest tax initiative seems to have bombed”

“It was so bad it didn’t even survive long enough to give the Senate the pleasure of rejecting it”

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“Why was the terror threat level raised last Friday?”

“It’s just a precaution because you never know what’s going to happen in COAG meetings”

Heard in the Coalition caucus

“If there’s no double dissolution Jacqui will be around for another four years”

“That could be a quadruple disillusion”

Heard at the ACTU

“Why do you believe there’s no-one else in the parliamentary Labor party like Bill Shorten?”
