ABC AOK

With all the ruckus over the ABC lately, it’s too easy to forget that it provides some of Australia’s most entertaining viewing when you least expect it. Take, for example, this conversation:

Speaker: THE MEMBER FOR WERRIWA WILL RESUME HIS SEAT
Latham: mr speaker…
Speaker: THE MEMBER FOR WERRIWA WILL RESUME HIS SEAT
Latham: Point of relevance…
Speaker: NO, THE MEMBER FOR WERRIWA *sigh* will resume his seat
Latham: Supplementary question mr speaker…..
Speaker: IT IS NOT THE POLICY OF THIS CHAIR TO ENTERTAIN SUPPLEMENTARY QUESTIONS AND THE MEMBER FOR WERRIWA WILL RESUME HIS SEAT.

Speaker: The house recognises minister for small business Joe Hockey
Hockey: It’s Peter Costello’s Birthday!

And boy, did he enjoy it.

I think they were talking about this, but then, who cares? It was damn good viewing. I’m beginning to warm to John McVey’s suggestion that the ABC be restricted to only broadcasting parliament 24 hours a day. I’d definitely watch it more often.
