If you missed QT today, make a point of watching the recorded version or catch the audio. Wayne Swan made a very amusing point, twice, of referring to Joe Hockey as the ‘Deputy Shadow Treasurer’. I fully expected the speaker to pick him up, but Jenkins either failed to hear or turned a jovial deaf ear..
Joe did handle himself quite well, but Swan seems to have his measure, at least for now.

  1. I was a little shocked at the Deputy PM’s defying the Speaker, at least 3 or 4 times, while she finished her well paced invective.
    On principle it is not a good idea break conventions that serve to protect all.
    But the Ranga still has my heart. And awe & respect for her intellect with passion – unfortunate that Krudd lacks the latter but thinks he has the former.
