Team Australia finds the burqa an affront to our sense of decency. Abbott kicked off the draw by declaring the headdress frankly confronting and a threat to Parliament.

George Brandis, who could be mistaken for a sleeper of the American Tea Party, very surprisingly helped save our dignity. He bravely defied his Captain, declaring what woman wore was none of his business and that the negative stance was untimely. It’s likely he lobbied against the Bishop proposed segregated seating, which has a strong pong of ‘Mississippi Burning’.
