On Thursday night, the two giants of Australian political satire, Clarke and Dawe, featured a Christmas segment where they opened a box of Christmas presents, mainly books.
One was a children’s book, about an Australian superhero, Captain Disappointment who comes whooshing in when things are bad in Australia
Dawe: And what does Captain Disappointment do?
Clarke: Nothing, Brian, he just disappoints.
The sad thing about Australian politics is that it was difficult to know who they are talking about.
