Rogue brogue

The Australian - - INQUIRER -

While Jacqui Lam­bie ex­pressed re­gret over her sur­prise Scots sta­tus (“We’re not shar­ing love for the bag­pipes this morn­ing”), La­bor’s Doug Cameron had no such is­sues yes­ter­day. Once again weapon­is­ing his La­nark­shire burr against Michaelia Cash and her col­leagues, he made hearty use of some of the more cher­ished jew­els in the Cameron ver­bal crown, among them “dis­grace” and “rrrrrab­ble”. Once his mouth went into cease­fire mode, Eric Abetz apol­o­gised to ev­ery­one who heard him.
