The Australians had a lot to celebrate at the cricket on the weekend (by putting in a respectable win after as series of embarrassing losses), and Ms Tips hears that former Coalition minister Jamie Briggs was getting right into the spirit of the day on Saturday. Briggs was spotted getting very loud and rowdy in the members’ lounge at Adelaide Oval.

Since getting booted from the ministry after an incident in a Hong Kong bar, then losing his seat to the Nick Xenophon Team’s Rebekha Sharkie, Briggs has set up his own corporate advisory business, called Devonshire Advisory. No word on whether tea and scones were the only refreshment on offer.
