I was really upset to see you crying and I just want to let you know that a lot of people were crying with you. Even my Great Aunt Mavis was crying, because her hip replacement ball thing fell out.
Although the ALP is exhaling in relief at Kevin Rudd’s departure, it will be a short-lived respite, as Kev is now set to cause further havoc from the grave. A by-election in the seat of Griffith is something the hapless Shorten needs like a hole in his ample head.

It was the first opportunity Tony Abbot had to get in the ring with SBY and show him we are not prepared to have our immigration policy dictated to us by a corrupt third world nation. But our Tony didn’t land a punch... instead, he threw in the towel.
