‘Mad Wowser’ minister Dutton, is quick to bat for party boy Briggs with his claimed accidental ‘mad f…… witch’ reaction sent to a woman journalist critical of the clown, but despite being repeatedly alerted to an immigration fraud which I have repeatedly alerted to him, he is a deaf, dumb, and blind three-headed monkey to department affairs he needs to address, even after reports of internal department corruption in 2014.

It’s not funny, it demonstrates the conservatives within the Liberals believe they are more important than anyone else, but worse, anyone objecting to a drunk making unwanted advances should be abused with heavy profanity; it is in fact a culture at the gateway to violent domestic abuse just up the road, and Turnbull must start educating his own party before the wider community in how to be a gentleman not just by name but also by nature.
