AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The people have spoken and no-one has a clue what they're banging on about. So it's time to join The Wharf Revue team in an orgy of pointless recrimination and hilariously ill-informed party-political punditry as they present a parade of pompous, opinionated pedants practiced in puerile partisan point-scoring. And alliteration.

'Watch in startling 1-D as the heroic Abbottar infiltrates the marginal electorates and becomes one with the Mar'gi, a forgotten race of fringe dwellers who fight to stop the boats and strip-mine the magical forests.

'Follow Red Riding Hood as she tries to navigate through the factional deadwood, aided by Bob Brown - the woodcutter who can't cut down anything.

'Stumble upon a forest glade, where proud Kristina and her Unpopular Mechanicals rehearse their next charade for the long-suffering citizens of NSW.

'Follow the Japanese wha - sorry, scientists - as they hunt for the fish John West rejects, when Moby Dick meets the Iron Chef!

'Join Sarah Palin for a mad tea party, vote for your favourite dysfunctional economy in the Eurodivision Sovereign-Debt Song Contest or quietly die inside as Mark Latham hosts Hey, Hey, It's Yesterday!

'Who said fairy tales can't come true?'
