While taking a break from the grueling in-fighting currently taking over the major parties, Tanya Plibersek MP has today given herself the afternoon to reminisce on a much simpler time in her life.
With a large glass of red by her side, the deputy leader of the opposition has put on her favourite cassette, the 1992 album ‘What’s The 411’ by New York rnb recording artist, Mary J. Blige.
“It’s been a big couple of months” she says.
“I’ve definitely earnt a bit of Tanya time, after all this stuff that I can’t talk about that’s been going on with people who I can’t name”
“I need some Real Love”
Mrs. Plibersek begins shuffling her shoulders in hip hop-style shimmy that would look much more welcome in a Bad Boy records video clip, not a Parliamentary office.
“This song used to go off at Kinsellas”
The Member for Sydney’s undying love for early nineties rhythm and soul music has been well-known and often reported on in the halls of Parliament House for many years. Originally coming to light during the first spill of Julia Gillard’s government, when she was filmed singing an acapella rendition of En Vogue’s ‘Don’t Let Go’ to a room full of Gillard supporters.
