Federal Senators have been told they’ll have to wait until the May council cleanup in Canberra next year to get rid of the toxic garbage that’s preventing them from serving the public in an appropriate manner.
The news was met with sighs across the chamber.
One of the loudest being Greens leader Richard Di Natale, who said the amount of clutter and garbage that occupies a number of Senate seat space is a concern.
The Victorian took time out of his busy morning of being in time out to speak to our reporters via telephone.
“It’s disappointing that we’re going to have to wait until the council pick up in May to really clean the house,” he said.
“But I’m glad that we’re doing it in an environmentally-friendly and thoughtful manner. That we’re not just going to drive out into Tidbinbilla and throw it in a creek. I’m not a pig,”
“But there’s plenty of people in the chamber who would do that. I’m not going to name names, but it rhymes with Harry O’Cuntivan. Anyway, have a good one guys. I’m going to play handball and eat devon sandwiches with Katter now.”
More to come.
