    Turnbull should elevate the spectacle by going on horseback, like the Queen, riding sidesaddle, in a dazzling dress uniform, saluting everyone he passes. Tony Abbott would have done it that way. # #

    I love the way # betrays his years at # University when he (often) refers to people who have "had a gutful". The only reason he never exclaims "strewth" is that nobody in # has done so since 1973. http://ur1.ca/p08wk

    Oh! I just remembered an alternate # anthem from an 80s satirical radio show, to the tune of God Save the Queen: "Wide brown Australian lands, Perfect for caravans, And kangaroos…"

    There's a dreadful # soft rock song, beloved by lager louts, that goes "Take me to the April sun in Cuba." I always thought it was "Take me to the airport, son."

    @luke Or rice pudding. I well remember the culture shock when # realised that rice might have other uses. There was rioting in the streets.

    @cdbragg Oh dear. Uncivilised bloody country. I prefer my vermin to be cute and furry, wearing little waistcoats, and fond of messing about in boats. #

    @kat I dream of the luxury of 6,000 words. The sub-prime university sector in # is too miserly to pay people to mark anything > 1,500 words. I spend most of my time cutting an adequate essay down to an incoherent travesty. #

    This verminous country is impossible. A frog in my shorts the other day was bad enough. Now I'm in a cloud of flies unnaturally selected to be small enough to defeat flyscreen. #

    @bobjonkmangpc # politics isn't pretty (we and # pioneered the Thatcherite left party, long before Blair, for example), but at least we have preferential voting, so we can vote for the best and the not-quite-worst at the same time.
