Insults hurled in the 44th Australian Parliament

There are only two procedural digests published to date which cover the 44th Australian Parliament, however recorded offensive words uttered by government, opposition and independent members of the House of Representatives are beginning to mount.

Perhaps it is time to consider a parliamentary version of the swear jar - $1,000 deducted from annual salary packages for each insult thrown across the chamber.

Before anything can be done Bishop the elder should be forcefully removed from the Speakers Chair.

One could be forgiven for thinking that things could not get any worse.

But one look at Sir Pository Abbott soon dissuades that opinion.
