With the entirety of the Senate piling on Fraser Anning for his speech, it affords the regular Australian an opportunity to impact our growing culture of extremism.
Well, it’s nonsense for breakfast again I’m afraid. One Nation self-destructed, a pimp won a seat for the Republicans and the official World Cup song is officially bad.
Senior Fake News correspondent Frank Rarely discusses the opportunities for populists and masochists alike to join Pauline.
Lordy doo, what a week. Roseanne Barr overdosed on stupidity, One Nation split in two and one man filled a bathtub with spuds, because drugs.
In a speech not widely covered, the maiden speech by One Nation’s Stephen Andrew proudly referenced both his ancient roots and retold the suffering they endured under the hand of the white man.
It’s been a rather violent week, punctuated by the abuse of Sam Dastyari, assumed peace in the Middle East and the prohibitive standards of decorum.
It must be a confusing being Malcolm Roberts’ voting base. The dinky-di Aussie product they voted for was actually made in India. Time for a ‘please explain’.
The Big Smoke can exclusively leak another gaffe from the offices of One Nation, this time after a staffer suggested a “mufti day”.
An ironing of the big boy pants, a case of admirable stoicism and the world’s most foolishly-named cash cave. #AusPol, you’re not right in the head.
The first bricks of a hate wall, the stripping back of pretence and a picnic spoiled. Winners, all. Oh, #Auspol, what are you like?
“Look boss, the plane,” we shriek, hailing the end of One Nation. But while Pauline might go down with the Cessna, the sentiment that powered her to the Senate will remain.
The familiar face of extracurricular parliamentary spending has knocked on our door once more, but who should we blame? The people who take advantage, or the culture that says it’s fine?
As it turns out, Pauline Hanson’s WA blockbuster was a bit of a flop. But as Hollywood lore stateth, we shouldn’t worry about it, we should worry about the sequel.
Despite the staggering results of the WA election, it’d be foolish to think that the growing Right have been bested by one vote.
The amnesiac 1%, a Senator almost reaching professional puberty and parliament replaced by cyborgs; it was a standard week in #Auspol. But who won?
Not the hero we want, but perhaps the one we need. Maybe. The Masked Lib returns to point out that the Coalition favouring One Nation is the right move for balance, and avoiding our own Trump.
The second edition of One Nation is not to be confused with the first, for Pauline’s new approach is a threat not only to the Left but also those who represent conservatism in this country.
Monday, bloody Monday. What happened while you were asleep? The Federal Court halted Trump’s Muslim ban, Pauline shared what she’d do as PM and New York City cleaned up her act.
A hung up phone, a search for an Internet bride and the canonisation of Joe Hockey. I’d ask who won the sack race of #AusPol this week, but it seems pointless.
Time for us to face an awkward truth. I believe Pauline Hanson is our grandest example of feminism at work.
One week closer to Trump, and seemingly the edge of reason. The week that flew by also featured Pauline cleaning house and a radical new way to love your job. Don’t ask…
Once more into the breach, dear friends. With the #AusPol bus commencing its usual route, we’re curious to see who was thrown underneath the wheels.
