Hmmm. I just messaged someone to say “Lick it in” rather than “Lock it in”. I’m hoping the context makes it clear.

@bradsprigg Nice, except that there’s actually some good people in the Liberal Party. They’re suppressed, but they’re there.

Anyway, that’s enough time spent praising the Attorney-General. I’ve got work to do.

No look, I’m perfectly willing to believe George Brandis is a decent human being. Just like I’m willing to believe cows can play the cello.

@alexkidman Surely kicking a pug “between the goalposts” means you’ve turned it to face the other way? Or was that not a euphemism?
