Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)

The disendorsement of sitting Liberal National Party member and Assistant Minister Jane Prentice highlights the sexist nature of the Coalition parties, I write in Independent Australia.

I think they may have kicked Jane Prentice to the kerb because she opposed some of their more heinous plans.

According to a representative of Orange Sky Laundry, the number of homeless Australians has risen by 15%. The service relies heavily on donors and volunteers, instead of the government acting to limit homelessness, increase the Newstart Allowance and ensure Australians have access to viable jobs.

In a private conversation with someone who has worked in the parliament, it was alleged that Julie Bishop has gained and kept her job as Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party by allowing males to jump her bones.

I will subtract Tony Abbott’s name from the list of bone jumpers.

In regard to Julia Banks’ comments on the Newstart Allowance, if she left the parliament, she would probably already have another job lined up and the $40 daily support from Newstart would not be needed, except perhaps to buy a new expensive lipstick.
