A budget day of biblical proportions

March 22. The last time parliament sat. And lo, many things have come to pass since then.

March 22. The last time parliament sat. And lo, a great many things have come to pass since then. For there was Peter, and there was James, and Christopher who denied James thrice, until an email appeared, and Joe did then say, "Be quiet! Let's stop talking about it now." And Julia did deny Peter, and Craig was banished to the cross benches. And lo, after many moons the Fair Work investigation magically appeared, and Craig did look bad. And thus, the coming question time, heralded by the supermoon, shall prove to be messy. And Peter shall lead the procession into the chamber -- sadly, without the pomp of previous entrances -- and there shall be a great wailing and gnashing of teeth. And in between Wayne's budget shall be handed down tonight, and they shall speak of the "battlers' budgets" and a "scandalous surplus" and "a surplus of scandal", prompting the oracle Keane to proclaim, "you can't move in Parliament House this morning without being hit by a shitty alliterative narrative". Brace yourselves for a budget day of biblical proportions.

    What exactly are Biblical proportions? Are you going to go all cubits and gopher wood on us?

    And the tittering is about Craig Thomson apparently having two dicks. He can be living in Melbourne and screwing hookers in Sydney at the same time, yet the story was originally that he was screwing hookers in Melbourne.

    In 2005.

    Not a sordid sex romp all over the country yesterday then.
