The Picong Industry needs more creativity

The major lesson the 2015 budget debate has taught us so far - apart from the fact that we’re broke - is that the quality of picong in our parliament is seriously lacking. Forget clever put downs, quick come backs, and vicious jabs at an opponent’s character; our Parliamentarians instead prefer insipid one liners, repetitive talking points and predictable punch lines to get their point across. Parliamentary picong displays as much creative skill and imagination as a bikini and feathers mas costume.
