While it has been three months since the federal election on July 2, we are still making our way through a series of first speeches from senators of all political stripes. New Labor Senator for Queensland Anthony Chisholm today tweeted his rejected ideas for his first speech, including “a national number plate commissioner to crack down on tools who order shithouse personalised number plates”. While Ms Tips approves of the sentiment behind the idea, terrible personalised number plates, especially ones with numbers instead of letters, are such a convenient “dickhead-identification” tool. They really must stay.
