The Canberra press pack has turned on Opposition leader Anthony Albanese after they were served only domestic wines at the Labor pre-election party mixer.
”This will definitely cost Labor the election,” said a member of the press pack, off the record of course. ”Sure, he served some delicious appetizers, but come on, no French bubbly?”
”What were they thinking.”
When asked why the press and politicians were socialising when the press should be holding the politicians to account, the member of the press pack said: ”We are holding them to account, I mean he only served domestic wine.”
”It’s bad enough that we all have to pack together in the one plane, I mean some of us have to travel in cattle class, dear God.”
”The public don’t know how hard we have it. Here’s hoping that the PM will put on a good spread for us.”
”Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and talk to Albo’s people about my gift pack. They included lavoosh crisp bread with my caviar and they no I’m gluten intolerant.”
