TURNBULL'S BIG SPILL:

5 WAYS TO STOP IT HAPPENING TO YOU.


Regardless of which side of politics you’re on, I think we can all agree that it’s a big old mess.The leadership spill has left a stain on the country that will be a painful reminder of these turbulent times.But how did we get here? Long story short, Malcolm’s party just got out of control. He planned a lovely soiree and ended up with a bush doof.


Sometimes you just can’t predict who’ll tag along with your friend from school that you haven’t seen since graduation, so you just have to be prepared.


Here’s 5 ways to stop the same happening to you. 

1. DON’T BE A PARTY CRASHER


It’s easy to feel sorry for Malcom, but not too long ago he crashed Abbott’s Party. I guess the basic golden rule applies - if you don’t want someone to crash your party, don’t crash theirs.

2. KEEP THEM BUSY.


Most of the time, people get super wasted and reckless because they’re bored. If you want to keep your party under control, it’s important to make sure there’s plenty of activities to keep everyone occupied. It’s the perfect opportunity to crack out that pack of Cards Against Humanity you got for secret Santa at your old job.

3. KEEP THEM WHERE YOU CAN SEE THEM


Setting up a cocktail bar in the kitchen is a great way to keep your party pals where you can see them and avoid them from splashing red wine all through your living room.

4. NANNA WRAP YOUR FURNITURE


The easiest way to protect your nice new lounge is to plastic wrap just like nanna, or put a spare bedsheet on it. I guess you’ll just have to wrestle with the fact the musty Power Ranger bed cover you’ve had since you were 8 will probably won’t be great for ambience…

4. GET STAIN RESISTANT FURNITURE


At the end of the day, life is messy. You can plan and prepare all you like, but spills are still gonna happen. Personally, I’d rather enjoy myself than play Cards Against Humanity on a Friday night. So just get stain resistant furniture. Aside from preventing an even worse hangover than you were already expecting, it’s also a great icebreaker
