As the Commonwealth continues to mourn the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, our politicians have this week decided to take their tributes to another level.
With the UK in full-blown mourning, Australia’s politicians have decided to pay their respects by honouring the Queen in a uniquely bureaucratic way.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese revealed that in keeping tradition with our ruling class, our highly paid politicians are going to do fuck all for the next few weeks.
The touching move comes as Albanese suspends state parliament for the next two weeks, as he and Governor General David Hurley head to the UK for the Queen’s funeral.
“In solidarity with the Royals who live it up off the public purse, I’m telling all of our very well-paid politicians to put their feet up and do fuck all for the next few weeks,” explained Prime Minister Albanese.
“It’s a tough cross to bear for leaders like us, but someone has to carry the load.”
“And everyone else will get a public holiday on a Thursday the 19th, but it’s up to us to really take some responsibility and take a load off for the next fortnight.”
“It’s hard work, but you gotta do what you gotta do.”
More to come.
