It now seems that Leader of the House and Minister of Workplace Relations Tony Abbott founded an organisation called Australians for Honest Politics to bring down Pauline Hanson. In a gross breach of the Man of Steel's extraordinary standards for ministerial conduct AHP has not yet issued the required declaration that whatever it was they thought they were doing they certainly did not inform the prime minister.
Canberra insiders expect Abbott's dismissal within the hour. The embattled minister, ever a man of many parts, is reported to be flogging a screenplay based on this exciting saga.
Whether Baz Luhrmann really wants to be produce a sexed up version of the Alexandre Dumas classic is unknown. Abbott, meanwhile, is reportedly confident that The Woman in the Rubber Thongs will prove a worldwide hit.
