I was queened once in Kings Cross. Does that count?
Wasn't it Oxford Street? :lol:
Haha Tony, you've now turned Australia Day into April fools day. Well done! A knighthood for Phil the Greek? Most deserving Aussie you could find? Hahahahaha and people voted for this numptie? Hahahahaha!
LOL, what's up with the Prince Phillip one?
I think I get it. Abbott is gunning for a Knighthood himself! Maybe it will become obligatory for all ex-Prime Ministers after they leave office.
I think Tony is indeed gunning for a knighthood. I hope he gets his knighthood and f**** off back to England. What an embarrassment.
:lol: What could be more Australian than giving a knighthood to one of the ultimate pisstakers? Farkin brilliant. Burn all sacred cows on the fires of Sir Philip the wog's offensive wit :lol:
Brilliant! Prince Phillip sound's like the sort of guy who'd fit right in at the regular Wednesday Sydney meet at the pub.
Nice to see Tony adding to the royals gag reel. On a par with Molly Meldrum's interview with Charles.
Don't forget the Inquisition to make sure us peasants are following the One True Religion! :lol:
I think next year we should get a Cardinal Sir George Pell. It has a nice ring to it. Maybe even a Pope Sir Francis 1st.
Actually the Google search for his gaffes is the funniest read you will have, he is a classic
My faith in Abbott has been restored. This is some genius-level trolling worthy of a Rhodes Scholar. Think about it... he was born in London, attended a Catholic single-sex school for boys, studied at Oxford... I think it's obvious, he's gone full Monty Python.
I thought it was some sort of Australia Day prank when I first heard about it. Who is next for the Knighthood? Sir Prince Andrew? Sir Freddie Flintoff?
You made me think of this bit:
Quite appropriate depiction of the party room I imagine. I see Turnbull playing Brian.
Fantastic start to the day before having to return to work
It also reminds me of this hilarious exchange between Pirocco and SammySilver:
SilverPete's comment that Abbott is looking for a knighthood probably started with the yes men in Abbott's circle repeatedly saying certainly, certainly.
"Was that Sir Tony?" mused Abbott.
