Damian Drum.

I think it was Mark Twain who once wrote 'democracy is rooted'.

Parliament will have some all night sit ins waiting for Damian to finish his sentences.

Never would of happened under the sober leadership of Barnaby Joyce. I'm going back to the Shooters party!

Damian lost the vote. His rousing rendition of the Drum manifesto did not get him over the line.

Jesus Shane. I thought for a moment you were saying democracy was rooted because Drummy didn't get the nod. Quick check of my wall calendar and it wasn't time to flick over to April through.

Democracy is even more rooted because Drummy didn't get the job. That's how bad a state democracy is in.

I believe it's a generally held view that democracy is the worst form of government apart from all the rest. This might turn it into a close run thing.

Yep, he lost the understudy job to Labor's joke nomination.

Because the planet burning is practical joke material for them.

Good luck, Adam.

What’s a Deputy Speaker do anyway? Sit on the bench until the Senior Speaker pulls a vocal chord or strains a gavel wrist?

I might be wrong, but I think the Deputy Speakers are the ones wearing the tracksuits who run out to the floor of parliament to intervene when a melee breaks out.
