Heaven's gonna burn your eyes

Who says politicians can't have fun?
This was a brilliant gimmick by the Liberal Party, in opposition to the newly elected Labour Government's introduction of Friday sittings of the House of Representatives.
The Prime Minister changed the days the House sits, but didn't turn up to the first Friday sitting as he was meeting flood victims in Queensland.
So the Liberals brought in their own Kevin Rudd.

The Friday sittings do not have provision for Question Time or diversions, and are for the debating of legislation only.
Geez, I never knew meeting flood victims was such a taboo subject in Australian culture.
