Coming to you live from a bunker underneath Parliament House, Sammy J’s Democratic Party is the warm hug we need to get us through another winter of Australian politics.
This short form series welcomes back brand new instalments of Playground Politics, as well as introducing the thrilling police drama Constitutional Cops, the edge-of-your-seat excitement of the all-new game show Get Them to the Frontbench and plenty more. There’ll be something for everyone in this weekly smorgasbord. Unless that person is Malcolm Turnbull or Bill Shorten.
So pour yourself a drink, invite your local MP around and get ready to party like it’s 2017 – because democracy has never tasted sweeter.
