Greens Karaoke Night Ends In A Fight Over Lee Rhiannon’s Song Choice

The Australian Greens are today in damage control after an end of Parliament karaoke night celebration ended up as a massive brawl in the Canberra suburb of Manuka.

A source close to the party explained to The (un)Australian that the fight was started when Senator Lee Rhiannon didn’t sing her usual song, Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rhiannon’ and instead sung the Pink Floyd classic, ‘Another Brick In The Wall.’

Our source claimed that it wasn’t the song choice that started the fight but rather Rhiannon’s animated performance. Particularly her singing rather loudly and in the face of Greens Education spokesperson Sarah Hanson-Young’s face, the lyric ‘We don’t need no education.’

This threw Senator Hanson-Young off her performance of the Justin Timberlake song, ‘Cry Me A River’ and hence the fight started.

Greens leader Richard Di Natale could not be reached for comment as he was on a silent meditation that he hoped would help fix the Greens internal problems.
