AUKUS KEEPS OUR FRIENDS CLOSE AND OUR ALLIES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PLANET
Fresh from their successful campaign in Afghanistan, PM Scott Morrison
has announced AUKUS, a security treaty with our close neighbours Britain and America.
He said the treaty will keep us safe from overreaching.
US President Joe ‘I’ve Still Got My Teeth’ Biden praised the Prime Minister, whom he affectionately called “that smudge on my iPad”.
A government spokeswoman said, “Starting a cold war will stop global
A Defensive Department spokesman said: “To increase our safety, the
government is buying nuclear submarines. Oops! I’ll make that sentence
more reassuring – the government is buying nuclear submarines to
increase our safety … Nope. That doesn’t work either.”
Australia will also purchase Tomahawk cruise missiles. Correction – they are Tom Cruise missiles. Correction – we will receive a team of Top Guns. Correction – Australia will be arming itself with pop guns.
The French are outraged their $90 billion submarine deal with Australia
has blown up like a nuclear bomb test in the South Pacific.
The “solid and enduring” treaty will last until the re-election of President
Donald J Trump, who says it was his idea.

GOVT ASKS FOR BLIND TRUST OF BLIND TRUST
Government minister Christian Porter has allowed a blind trust to cover

A government lawyer shredding paper trails said, “If it looks dodgy and
smells dodgy, it’s ‘technically within guidelines'”.
Christian Porter could not be contacted for comment, he was having lunch – a nameless sauce with an unknown doner kebab.
Treasurer Josh Frydenegg said that Porter had acted within the rules.
“And boy, was he a good actor. I almost believed him!”
