The Federal Resources Ministers has informed The Advocate that he would only like to talk about how many jobs the Adani coal mine will create today.
This stance from the Queensland Senator came after he was questioned about why he always seems to look like he was three sheets to the wind the night before.
“I’m not here to talk about that,” said the senator this afternoon.
The Senator who tweeted some ‘good news for the state of Queensland’ praising the ‘little Aussie battler’ Adani’s win while parts of the state were battling devastating bushfires a couple of days ago told us today that he wasn’t out on the piss last night.
“I don’t know why you guys keep asking me if I gave it a nudge last night,” said the somewhat unkempt Resources Minister.
“I mean, obviously a lot of wining and dining goes in my line of work, but that’s more of a long lunch kind of thing, rather than a late night kind of thing you know.”
“And look, that’s just part of my job. I’m trying to keep this country’s economy afloat by providing federal investment and subsidies for large multinational companies who are in many instances desecrating our natural environment and paying next to nothing in tax.”
“And I won’t apologise for copping a few bottles of red on a regular basis to make that happen okay. But I’m not talking about that, I’m here to talk about the jobs the resources sector creates, so stop asking me why I always look hungover.”
