Like all political ideologies, socialism means different things to different people; everything from universal healthcare to the complete and total subjugation of the populace, to just kind of annoying everyone at your local offshore detention protest.

But to one helicopter lovin’, Sky News-commentating former speaker of the House, socialism has a very personal, amorphous definition. That is, “whatever the hell Bronwyn Bishop doesn’t like on any given day”.

    The woman should be in a facility.

    1. Karen Hutchinson

      she was……Parliament!

  2. Sleuth

    Thanks Bronny for reinforcing how irrelevant you were and are.

  3. Graeski

    $250,000 a year for being retired – sigh! I should have it so hard …

    And does she work pro bono for Sky News?

  4. Redgum

    Shameless old cows like this only get oxygen from the Far Right

  5. cyberfysh

    And I thought Xenophon only wanted to blow up the pokies.

  6. Lee Tinson

    It’s probably worth the money to just not have her in parliament.

  7. Charlie Chaplin

    How old is Bronny? She’s up there, surely? We don’t have too many more years of this, surely?

  8. MJM

    Good to be reminded why she was always thought to be THE WORST ever Speaker of the HoR.

  9. Karen Hutchinson

    Bronwyn Bishop……best comedienne of 2017 and worth every penny of her taxpayer $250,000 funded pension for giving us a regular rib tickling guffaw.

    The deluded Bishop was always ultra partisan, but remember her love child Abbott is still there. The blue ties, us and them, team Australia, Christian civilisation only, the Royal family and homophobia, his modus operandi.

    1. Lee Tinson

      It’s looking like Abbott won’t be there after the next election. If he doesn’t retire, he’s got a fight on his hands for pre-selection. There’s hope for us yet!
