This isn’t a good look the day after the Budget
It not seriously bad, it’s just embarrassing.
Considering the hundreds of people who review the budget before it gets to the podium on budget night, it is amazing that no one thought – or fought hard enough to win – the fight to have the energy assistance payment extended to the people with the least disposable income.
What a difference a little over 10 hours makes. At 9pm the Treasurer says those on Newstart won’t be getting the $75 one-off energy assistance payment. By 7.45am there has been a $80 million back-flip. #auspol @9News pic.twitter.com/AR8nXU4DSa

The senate has censured Fraser Anning
Which is just about the best thing that could have happened to him … to help his re-election.
Here’s the moral posturing against the vile Anning:
And this is Anning mounting his re-election pitch.
Have a look at the comments. He might lose the war, but he is making the most of the battle:
I stand by my comments on Muslim immigration. Despite all the left wing hysteria today, no one actually argued against what I said, because it is 100% true.
Countries that had increased Muslim immigration had increased crime and terrorism.
Sweden, Germany, UK, France etc.

Meanwhile, in the kiddies section
Christopher Pyne could barely breathe when the PM discussed the carbon proposal of the Labor Party.
It was pretty good.
.@ScottMorrisonMP: Over in Kazakhstan, I'm sure they're absolutely thrilled about this. Some call it a carbon tax, but I call it the Borat tax.
I know what Borat would think of Labor's policies on emissions reduction…
… 'Verrrrry Niiiiice'
