All The Best Twitter Reactions To A Bunch Of Politicians Getting Booted From Parliament
Yep, even Netflix is in on the roast.
Man, nothing says Friday arvo like a bunch of politicians getting booted from Parliament!
As is sacred tradition every time Australian politicians do something stupid (most days), the people have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, feelings and memes. Given that two of the politicians we’re farewelling today are Australia’s least faves Barnaby Joyce and Malcolm Roberts, most of those thoughts/feelings/memes can be pretty simply summed up as “fucking stoked”.
Here are all the best reactions we’ve seen to the news this arvo. For your viewing pleasure, we’ve organised them into Malcolm Roberts Roasts and Barnaby Joyce Roasts.

Malcolm Roberts compared himself in his maiden speech to Socrates.
Socrates' foray into public life didn't end well either.

Farewell Malcolm Roberts – he flew too close to the sun (mostly because he didn’t believe in global warming). pic.twitter.com/ntcj30NZFP

And lol, remember that time Roberts said he chooses to believe he was never British?
Roberts: I choose to believe that I am still a Senator #citizenship7

Shoutout to the High Court website for crashing right before the decision:
The high court has ruled regarding Malcolm Roberts. The decision, which was unanimous, is “500 – Internal Server Error”

Now Show Me The Spiciest Barnaby Joyce Roasts
Technically this means that Pistol and Boo had the same right to be in Australia as Barnaby Joyce had to be in Parliament.

So much for star barrister Malcom Turnbull saying Barnaby Joyce was “qualified to sit in the House and the High Court will so hold" #auspol

When High Court said Barnaby Joyce gone, there was a quiet "yesssssssss" in the spillover room from punters #citizenship7

Ah, Australia, where the Leader of the Opposition is definitely not above a petty retweet.

Anyway, it’s great that we’ve entered an era in Australian politics where just the words “stable majority government” constitute an incredible joke. Good times.
Stable majority government. #auspol
