    I think that you’ll find the instruction coming over the ear piece are “breathe in, breathe out, left foot, right foot, breathe…”

    Anything that stops toady expressing his thoughts and feelings (on the rare occasion his experiences either one) on the international stage is a good thing for Australia’s image

    I always assumed it was so he can be fed his lines from Credlin. He is only the brainless mouth piece

    AR, you stole the very words. Do not tell me we deserved this dimwit.And no I didn’t vote for him as hell had not frozen over.

    Of course, the earpiece could not be for translation. As “Canadia” is a bilingual country, the PM may have been asked questions in French at a press point. It could be awkward to just look dumb when it happens.
