Federal MP George Christensen has reportedly mortified a number of his parliamentary colleagues today by biting into a Kit-Kat instead of snapping the fingers off one-by-one as regular folk do.
The Member for Dawson came under fire for the act, which saw Bob Katter stand up and walk out in utter disgust.
Christensen also copped flack from across the floor.
Labor frontbencher Anthony Albanese swore audibly while Tanya Plibersek got up and tried to throw a condensed version of the Constitution of Australia at Christensen before being stopped by the Serjeant-at-Arms.
“How can he [Christensen] just sit there and do that?” said Katter, who took a moment to compose himself outside the parliamentary chamber.
“You’d end up receiving CPR if you tried to do that in Charters Towers. He should know better. He should resign! There should be an investigation! Wait here, I’ll be back.”
The Advocate reached out to Mr Christensen for comment, who promptly responded with a prepared and articulate letter.
“If you don’t like the way I eat Kit-Kats, then you can go and get fucked,” wrote the Mackay-native.
“Seriously, there was a budget last night. Scott Morrison has shit the bed. Typical Protestant kneejerk rock’n’roll hymn bullshit. Scott Morrison should go to Captain Snooze tonight and pick up a new bed. Can’t you report on things that people care about?”
More to come.
