about

Goings-on in Northern Territory politics from 2012-2016 may read like satire, but it is all true. These are stories you couldn't make up. This book is an instruction manual on how NOT to run a government.

In the Top End, politics is not a numbers game, it is a blood sport.

In comparison to Rudd, Gillard, Abbott and Turnbull, the goings-on in the Northern Territory parliament are like watching a troop of clowns throwing knives into each other's backs.

CROCS IN THE CABINET is partly a serious political book, partly a riotous look at the characters, the scandals and the incompetence of Northern Territory politics. It will make you laugh, cry, wince and shake your head as you read of:

- a minister with a hostess club bill
- a masturbating minister and the lewd videos he sent someone other than his wife
- why a minister shouted 'we are in love' on the floor of the parliament
- how the Chief Minister stared down a coup
- how an MP forced the evacuation of a hotel
- why an MP went fishing instead of dealing with leadership matters
- exactly how bonkers the NT parliament really is.

Written by two of the NT NEWS's best journalists, Walkley Award-winning Ben Smee and award-winning Christopher A. Walsh, this is FEAR AND LOATHING ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL meets FAWLTY TOWERS.
