Today the government successfully moved a gag of a debate in the Senate in order to bring on a vote which it subsequently lost.
Maybe the best exercise in number crunching since Billy Sneddon called a spill for the Lib leadership then voted against himself.

He's one ****ing Senate crossbencher, elected by mistake, with next to no power. He's not the second coming of Jesus who will lead us into a righteous Libertopia (as much as an oxymoron as that is). Come back to me when the LDP can actually achieve something.
Am I doing it right?
I heard some of the new bloke's speechesuoud have to regard him as any sane person does the rest of the lolbertarians after hearing it - mediocrity.
the only reason he's there is because a lot of people (my mum included) mistook the liberal democrats as the liberal party on the senate voting sheet.
i didnt vote for him but it's certainly going to be a welcome voice amongst utter ****s like jacqui lambie and sarah hanson-young (burgey or jono to make a joke about me being sexist within the hour)
the current state of the senate is a blight on the nation

With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
