    Christopher Pyne Is A Harassing Texter And One Senator Has Had Enough

    “I am being inundated with text messages from Christopher Pyne... (he) is embarrassing himself and needs to stop harassing me and other cross benchers."

    Palmer United Party Senator Glenn Lazarus has spoken out about Christopher Pyne's negotiating techniques, revealing the Education Minister to be a harassing texter.

    Senator Lazarus called out Mr Pyne over his role in negotiating the government's sweeping changes to the higher education system.

    "I am being inundated with text messages from Christopher Pyne virtually begging me to support the Abbott Government's higher education reforms. (He is) embarrassing himself and needs to stop harassing me and other cross benchers," he wrote on Facebook.

    “I have never given Christopher Pyne my mobile phone number," he said.

    The Queensland Senator ended the statement letting everyone know the Palmer United Party would not be negotiating further and therefore dooming the government's chances of getting legislation passed.

    "Palmer United will be voting down the higher education reforms."

    Some people were quick with the Pyne parodies.

    Perhaps he'll have to go with something a bit more simple.
