Tony Abbott's "Q&A boycott" might be one of the more intriguing political moves in recent times, with the PM finally getting a chance to stick it to the ABC.
Letters released at the end of last week show Abbott fiddling in the affairs of the national broadcaster, demanding the show move from the light entertainment section of ABC, into the news division.
Until that time, government ministers have been banned from appearing on the program.
But if you wander through their Twitter timelines the boycott really does seem a little silly.
1. Like when the foreign minister said Mark Arbib being yanked from the program confirmed "civil war" in the Labor party.
2. And communications minister Malcolm Turnbull asking, "why wdnt he show?"
3. Finance minister Mathias Cormann was just pumped the show would come to his home state back in 2010.
4. He really enjoyed the show a year later.
5. He's not alone. Government MPs love telling everyone how much they enjoy going on.
6. Because ministers, like environment minister Greg Hunt get to actually talk about policy to a massive audience.
7. Others get to be good role models to women.
8. Or express some views on Mums. (Mums are great tbh.)
9. Social services minister Scott Morrison really enjoys watching his colleagues in "new politics debate".
10. It seems like education minister Christopher Pyne heralds every single one of his many appearances.
11. He even encouraged people to come along and join.
12. Treasurer Joe Hockey got the chance to take audience questions in a special Intergenerational Report edition.
13. He was so excited he took a backstage snap.
14. Because government MPs love Q&A.
15. It gives some of the lesser known MPs a chance to get noticed.
16. While others just used the program just to show off.
