Ian Gordon, Main Arm

I am very interested in the advertised position of Australian prime minister. I can’t remember what the criteria were, but I just know that I could do a great job!

While I can’t start straight away, and would find working Mondays and Thursday a little difficult, I’m sure my citizenship problems will be sorted out fairly soon!

Would the job involve transparency and / or honesty? These are two areas I sometimes have difficulty with (but Peter and Scott have promised to mentor me).

Finally, would it involve much shouting and insulting? I don’t mind telling pricks how stupid they are, but my feelings are easily hurt !

I await your positive response.

PS: What would be my pension rate, and would I have a female intern?
