This is possibly one of the weirdest political interviews we have ever seen.
But then, it’s Australia, and anything goes in local politics.
One minute North Queensland politician Bob Katter is giving his blessing to the forthcoming legislation on equal marriage following the positive result to the national referendum.
Then, he changes.
One of the most bizarre transitions I’ve ever seen a politician make. Just watch Australian MP Bob Katter. pic.twitter.com/gqG0fO3lwy

Let’s look at that close up, with broadcaster ABC picking up the slack:
Katter asked for his view on Australia’s historic vote in favour of marriage equality during a press conference last week — and his response took more than one unexpected turn.
“I mean, y’know, people are entitled to their sexual proclivities. Let there be a thousand blossoms bloom, as far as I’m concerned,” he said brightly, chuckling as he spoke.
“But I AIN’T spendin’ any time on it, because in the mean time, every three months, a person is torn to pieces by a crocodile in North Queensland.”
Aaaaaaaand…. back to the studio.
While we’re here, if you ever wondered what happened to poor, dead Crocodile Dundee, he upped sticked and moved to Essex, to live quietly out of the spotlight.
I suppose the 50,000 volt electric fence really chews up the cash
He’s not even doing a great job of stopping crocodiles from roaming all over the UK.
But great work from the kiddiewinks, sitting on the other one to prevent it from getting away.
Poor, dead Steve Irwin would have been proud.
