Pride and Prejudice

“As he launched his attacks on [Human Rights Commissioner] Professor Gillian Triggs, there was something about George Brandis’ pomposity that reminded me of a minor Jane Austen character, all stiff collars and self-importance. When he was censured by the Senate, the title ‘Sense and Censurebility’ popped into my mind and the temptation to go the full Austen was too great.”
