Bonk Ban: Malcolm Turnbull Has Banned Ministers From Having Sex With Their Staff
Bonk ban's back, alright!
Well, Malcolm Turnbull didn’t have the guts to ask Barnaby Joyce to resign this afternoon, but has moved to officially impose a parliamentary bonk ban!
In a press conference this afternoon, Turnbull basically said that the ministerial code of conduct needs a little bit of updating in the wake of Barnaby’s colossal errors of judgement. He’s committed to making some more serious edits in the near future, but inspired by Barnaby, he’s decided to add one key change right now: effective immediately, ministers must not fuck their staff.

Unfortunately, the Bonk Ban comes far too late for Barnaby, who about to go enjoy his taxpayer-funded week of leave to reflect on his mistakes or whatever. And as for the many other allegations against Joyce, including the pretty serious ones about misuse of taxpayer funds, Turnbull just said he’d received “
Except, of course, for the newly implemented Bonk Ban. What a pity that we couldn’t just punish this one particular politician for his mistakes, instead of implementing a frankly ridiculous rule that affects everyone but him.
Finally, there might be some actual meditation in the Meditation Room #bonkban
