Christmas Sammy J’s Playground Politics – Tis the Season to be Pollie


After capturing the nation’s hearts and Facebook accounts during the 2016 Federal election campaign, Sammy J, the self-proclaimed political tragic, returns with his latest installment of Sammy J’s Playground Politics – Tis The Season To Be Pollie.

It’s Christmas time in Canberra. Malcolm, Bill and all their friends have stuffed their stockings and our economy for another year, but who’s made it on Santa’s naughty or nice list?  It’s time to deck the parliamentary halls with boughs of pollie, as Sammy J shares the Christmas spirit with the children of Australia, through carols, candy canes and taxpayer funded carrots for Rudolph. There’s never been a more exciting time to find out what our pollies are getting for Christmas!
