The Parson's No's

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.

  1. This behavior would bring Parliament into disrepute. Imagine if people lost respect for the little Bourgoise politicians ?? "democracy"Soviet style would be Laguhed at ! People would not Believe their Leaders! This disbelief might even spread to the "unions" the only other source of employment for these BA s and MBAs ! , the mind fair Boggles ! It may even result in real Democracy?.Perish the thought .

    Popcorn and choctop time, Prof. But a word of caution, not all shows live up to expectations, and this one may be a bit of a sleeper, slow to start and gearing up later.

  4. I notice you were mentioned in despatches in this morning's OZ with reference to The Honourable Slipper's Member. Well done Professor. Can't wait for Parliament to begin this week!!

  5. There's every chance that around 100 Labor caucus heads will spontaneously combust before Tuesday morning. Unless Gillard cancels her weekend pep talk. Or the caucus might just do what it has been doing for the past year: staring into the headlights of the approaching road train. The Rudd solution looks good to some of the lemmings; it will quickly become apparent that the breeze on their necks is actually the buzz saw's blade-cooler. You will acually be able to hear the hyperventilation by the time the Taylor Square Cabaret comes to Parliament House at 10am on Tuesday.

  6. Well done Bunni, on your mention in Oz despatches. But one wonders, why the hell didn't highly paid members of the gallery swoop on this morsel like sparrows in the Southgate food court?

  7. Buggared if I know, Anonymous. Apart from conceit, there's not much in your typical reporter's kit bag, just big lumps of indolence and conceit.

    Methinks things shall never be quite the same down at the billabong. Has PM Brown listed "Bunyiptude"amongst the "hate media" to be brought before his star chamber?

    Has the Hon. Tony Burke MP instructed his department to declare bunyips feral amphibions on par with the cane toad? and are plans being drawn up for a culling program?
