Politicians Couldn't Eat Hot Chips At Lunch Today, So They Got An Apology


Posted on

Everyone loves some hot chips at lunch. Everyone. Well now, evidence has emerged that Australia's hard working politicians also love some salty, fried potato during their midday break.

BuzzFeed News has been shown an email that was sent around to all MPs today about the dining room fryers being broken and apologising that "some... favourites (such as chips) could not be provided".


The email suggests that a "work-around strategy" is being developed so there'll be a "full menu" by lunchtime tomorrow.

That's right, Australia's politicians will be back to eating their "favourite" chippies by midday tomorrow. The Chip Emergency will soon be over.
