The 41st Parliament has sat and first impressions are not good.
Total achievement has been that the Opposition has demonstrated that Malcolm Turnbull and Christopher Pyne could not organise a piss-up in a brewery on Friday night.
Malcolm and Christopher try to organise a Friday night piss-up. Kevin Andrews checks to see if he’s been invited
The government has managed to demonstrate that one of Labor’s most effective politicians has proved to be mendacious dickhead.
And Cory Bernardi’s colleagues managed to send him off to the United Nations for three months. Sighs of relief all round.
So, no progress on budget repair, superannuation reform, climate change et cetera et cetera et cetera.
And the Senate GIMPS (Greens, Independence, Minor Parties) haven’t even got started.
