Tasmaniacs





One of these characters is the de facto leader of the Australian Greens and the other is his impersonator. Both believe passionately in environmental conservation and engage in a range of ecologically sustainable practices, such as urinating on native trees, using solar heating, and walking to work whenever possible. So indistinguishable have these two figures become that in order to maintain his discrete identity, Senator Brown has been forced to break with tradition and give up his daily stick-fetching exercises on the lawn above Parliament House.

The Australian Greens have long been active advocates of canine rights, especially on the hotly contested issue of sniffer dogging. When asked to comment, Brown's impersonator replied, "Woof".

He'd be a terror in question time, that's for sure.

"Mr Speaker, I put it to you that fiscally, economically, politically, socially, rationally, scientifically, philosophically, and otherwise, the legislation proposed by Mr Spaniel is...

Ooooh, how can I stay mad at you? Here! Have a biscuit! Go on! Have a biscuit!"

Come to think of it, that approach would improve Question Time in the House immeasurably.

It's a wonder they don't offer the Hon. Brown a biscuit and a scratch behind the ears as it is. He's cockerspaniel all over, God love 'im.
