Monday night down here in Victoria and some brainwashed Qanon Trumpys park themselves at Parliament House screeching about freedom from tyranny while simultaneously calling for several members of parliament including the Premier to be dragged out and hanged.

Tuesday morning: saggy soufflé Oppo leader Matthew Guy holds a media door stop in front of said crazies on prime time TV.
