“Whatever Julia says…”

No, this is not a spoof interview with John Clark.

This is a real interview: with Australian MP Bill Shorten, something called a “workplace relations minister,” showing all the intellectual independence of a castrated newt.

The subject of the interview was originally Peter Slipper. It became Bill Shorten.

And his moment in the sun has now gone around the world.


  1. I can't believe it's real. I don't know whether to laugh or to cry.

  2. These are our representatives folks. This happens all the time in all gvts. This time the guy just happened to admit it. Because it's cool now to be a sheep. Cheers!
