SAINT PETER of the Cross has declined to shed light, sanctified or otherwise, on his wee-hours cab-crawling about Kings Cross and Taylor Square. A dogsbody in Peter Slipper's office has told the Australian that the midnight marathon man is preparing for his debut in the Speaker's chair and is just too busy to comment.
Busy? Wait until Tuesday, when the Reverend Slipper must try to impose order on what promises to be one of the most riotous parliamentary sessions since Federation. Then he will be busy, very busy indeed. He will need to expel not just Christopher Pyne, whose ejection is a given, but every single member of the Opposition if he is to keep the mystery of his travels under wraps.
Tuesday is going to be so much fun.
