Martyn Bradbury tries to appear smart but fails with thisÂ utterance:
The Labour Party have just been caught out again by the far quicker Green Party. Labour were quietly discussing quantitative easing at the very top of the Party, the Greens have jumped the shark by launching the debate yesterday on Q+A and have claimed their alternative economic policy spurs once again.
Jumping the sharkÂ is anÂ idiomÂ created byÂ Jon HeinÂ that is used to describe the moment in the evolution of a television show when it begins a decline in quality that is beyond recovery. The phrase is also used to refer to a particular scene, episode or aspect of a show in which the writers use some type of “gimmick” in a desperate attempt to keep viewers’ interest.
On the other hand heÂ inadvertently placed the most accurate label yet on the Green’s and now Labour’s batshit crazy financial ideas. Next thing they will all be buying weird sunglasses and purple crimplene suits in their march to financial control of the country.
