The best
vignette from Budget night has come from Brendan Nelson’s Budget bash –
unsurprising, given that it’s the largest and poshest of the fundraising dos
many MPs now hold that evening.

Guests at
the $500 a plate shindig were given a showbag. It didn’t contain much – a hat
and a waiter’s friend. A waiter’s friend made in China – just like our current commodities.

So useful
for uncorking the celebratory bottle or two of Grange.
