Senator Jacqui Lambie has revealed the gruelling personal torment she had to endure prior to an appearance on ABC’s Q&A last night.
The Tasmanian single mother-turned politician says she spent weeks preparing herself for the very likely possibility of saying something stupid in front of talkback radio personality, Alan Jones.
“I was ready to go, but god damn it was scary!” said the excited former Palmer United senator.
“I think me and Alan agreed on most things, but I have the tendency to overstep the mark a bit and that was the worry,”
“We all know what can happen then…. He’s had to straighten out Tony Abbott for doing that quite a bit lately…
“….I just had to hope I didn’t start talking about something I didn’t fully understand. Because obviously I can’t bluff Alan”
“Like every other politician in Australia, I was pretty much at his mercy,”
“He knows so much more about everything… and for some reason, his opinion is far more important than anyone who has been elected into power by the Australian public”
Alan Jones has since responded to Ms Lambies confession.
“Senator Lambie should not all worry about me, there is a lot of potential for us to work together”
“I have been elected into MY position, by the public… they voted me in with twenty years of the highest talkback radio ratings in Australia” said an extremely educated and articulated Alan Jones.
“I have more right than Gillard did, or the Rudd government that followed her. I was flat out while those two were in charge. Both mummy and daddy”
“Tony Abbott isn’t much better, I’m sure you’re aware that Mr Abbott has lost all Prime Minister privileges until he can learn how to show some respect,”
