    Not one new question from the ‘opposition’ parties aside from Jan Logie & Tracey Martin. The remainder are all ‘same old, same old’. Just how many times does Blinglish have to explain simple economics to Robbo?

    What a shame that Captain Mark of SAS fame isn’t setting a poser for the PM today.
    No Andy + no Ron = no swearing.

      Yes Robertson has a habit of labouring the point over and over again, is he expecting a different answer I wonder? If not, why does he bother.
