    We all know that Malcolm doesn't belong in the Conservative Party. In fact he was courted by the Dandy Party, but despite being a tailoring progressive, he's a fabric traditionalist, so there you are.

    For now, he has to toe the Party line and make sure he wins the next election. Then, and only then, will the real Malcolm be revealed: pocket squares; grossa-weave purple grenadine ties; and maybe even some monkstraps - the better to taunt his predecessor.

    Speaking of sooks, Kevin Andrews certainly didn't want to go quiet into that good night.

    Sounds very much as though Hockey will get a plum foreign affairs posting upon retirement, given Turnbull's comments about how be believes that Joe "...has a further contribution to make in our nation's service."

    Ten wombats deliberately run over and killed by a drunken 4WD driver in Kangaroo Valley on the weekend.

    I think Alan Jones should express his outrage.

    After all, the perpetrator most likely listens to his show.

    Perhaps a posting to Damascus is in order?

    Now that Australian planes are flying over Syria they could just parachute him down a la Operation Dumbo Drop.

    This would be so ironically fitting for Abbot.

    For the gents who have moved around a bit, especially interstate, any tips for the best way to pack your tie collection?

    I keep the tie boxes that they are sent in (Vanda's are sturdy, very sturdy). I roll each one, place in the box (3-4 in a box) then place that box in one of the larger clothing boxes I'm bringing - towards the top.

    If you're like me, you just keep them on their tie rack hangers and hang those in the Port-A-Robe you use for the move.

    Then when you get to the other end you pick them all up from the bottom of the Port-A-Robe and hang them again.

    Same way I store them - rolled up and crammed together.

    Why is Malcolm not wearing a blue tie? Is he some sort of sartorial subversive?

    4 Corners tonight on the coup. Beer in fridge, popcorn ready to go.

    For travelling , optimal space usage is by laying them down flat, basically lining the edge of the luggage case.

    Hi gents, it's time for me to retire my wallet after 6 years of continuous service. It's a very slim 11cm x 7 cm with 6 cards slot , 2 side slips and 2 bill section. Looking for something similar size wise but a bit special. Wife even approved! Looked at ettinger - but sizing is way off. Any suggestions?
