Politicians across Australia have today tilted their heads in confusion after being informed that the Diamonds netball team will be sticking to their guns and refusing money from a billionaire “on ethical grounds”.
“Cindy can you look up this ‘ethics’ thing?” Barnaby Joyce was heard asking his secretary. “Pretty sure it’s a typo, I reckon they probably mean ‘ethnics’ which would explain why Gina doesn’t want to fund them.”
Journalists too across Australia have questioned the sports teams motives, stating that they’ve never heard of someone choosing professional integrity over taking money from a billionaire before. “Wait, are you saying you can choose not to take money from a person actively using their money to undermine democracy?” asked one News Corp journalist. “Haha nice one, you almost had me there for a second.”
