According to insiders, two of the country’s highest profile federal senators Jaqui Lambie and Nick Xenophon are official!
This news comes alongside news that the two have forged a political alliance in an attempt to win more seats at the next election.
Sources close to both parties have confirmed that Nick Xenophon secured the heart of Tasmanian senator following a visit to the north-west of her state last week, where he is believed to have asked the young mother to dinner at a local Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant.

Prior to her budding companionship with the avid non-gambling Greek, Lambie has previously been linked to NRL Footy Show host Beau Ryan and The Betoota Advocate’s very own editor, Clancy Overell.
“Jacqui was never going to settle down with a quiet old bushie like me,” said a jaded Overell.
“She was caught up in that Canberra fast lane. The dinners, the public bar, Katter’s Karaoke. We really tried to make it work, but I have a feeling Xenophon has been cutting my grass for a while,”
Speaking from his South Australian home, Nick Xenophon was unable to confirm the claims of an affair with Ms Lambie, but he has stated that if he receives anymore late night phone calls from the Betoota Hotel’s landline – he will be slapping Clancy Overell with an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO).
“I don’t appreciate the late night phone calls. No wonder you louts were denied Press Gallery access,” said Xenophon
“There is nothing that suggests Lambchop (Senator Jacqui Lambie) and I are romantically involved with one another… Other than the photo of us at KFC in Tassie,” said a defensive Xenophon.
“I don’t think that warrants the drunken threats I have been receiving from The Betoota Advocate’s editor,”
In what can only be described as a blatant example of mixing business with pleasure, both senators recently created their own political parties, the Nick Xenophon Team and the Jacqui Lambie Network – forging a political alliance in an attempt to win more seats at the next election.
