Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has posted a video on Youtube that sees her pledge allegiance to a box of oats as part of her Australia day celebrations.
Speaking to The (un)Australian Senator Lambie explained the bizarre video, “Look I’m sick of people coming to this country and not following our way of life. If you come here you eat oats, Weetbix or Vegemite for breakfast and I don’t want no excuses like f’off, I’m full.
“Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to see the Prime Minister to try and get a knighthood for Uncle Toby.”
Senator Lambie’s pledge has received mixed support in the community, with one prominent dissenter being former NSW Premier and food critic Bob Carr, who said of the Independent Senator, “Lambie is typical of the lower classes, they like oats but don’t appreciate how good oats can be if they’re steel cut. I’m guessing she even eats her almonds unactivated.”
Bob Carr is expected to challenge Senator Lambie prior to the election on an upcoming episode of Ready, Steady, Cook.
