Australia has an Opposition Leader, it has emerged. The man, who functions in much the same way as other humans, was revealed to television audiences last night.

“He seems nice,” said pensioner Gwen Morrison from Burwood East, although she was unable to remember his name.

It is unclear how long the man has held the position.

    It would have been nice if this guy had his mother-in-law choose and fit his tie, instead of one of his young kids. After all, if you’re going to reappear in public, like a 79 yr old Elvis walking out to cameras after his shift at 7-11, you really should put in a little effort.

      That’s so deep – you have just changed my vote! Now I’ll vote for nice Mr Abbott with the tasteful ties.

    I have also heard rumours that there may be an opposition leader in NSW – but one can’t really trust rumours can you?
