The press gallery is hardly the place you’d expect to find a rodent in
Parliament House. The upcoming visit from the rat inspector is
apparently more likely to turn up carpet beetles, dung beetles – and
maybe even Mark Latham, under the piles of crud in Alan Ramsey’s
office. So what would the pest inspectors find in the press gallery?
And exactly where might we find a rodent in Parliament? Send your
suggestions and helpful advice to [email protected] and we’ll pass
them on to the exterminators, so they can deal with the problem once
and for all.
