One can’t switch on the television or open a digital device without seeing a conservative taking head with the single underlying message “let me keep my lucrative job”, “give me that lucrative job” or "I want that lucrative job to go to my mate".

The blame for this personal cynical take on the current political struggle lies solely at the feet of Team Turnbull, for deciding to call a double dissolution of federal parliament in 2016 with the longest election campaign held in my voting lifetime.

Tough tatties Ms. Griggs, you and your Abbott-Turnbull Government cronies are the reason many of us are praying that we just survive the nonsense until 2 July.
