Panicked Joe Hockey Realises He Forgot To Pass Budget

Former Treasurer Joe Hockey left Parliament House yesterday without remembering to pass the federal budget. 

A frantic Mr Hockey was seen doing a U-turn on the Canberra to Sydney highway as the realisation sunk in.

“We’ve all done it,” one Parliamentary staffer said. “I saw Joe going though a mental checklist as he left the building yesterday – keys, wallet, phone, stove off, cigars butted out. But unfortunately he must’ve forgotten to pass any legislation before he walked out”.

At publication time, Mr Hockey was heading back to Canberra.
