Apologies for the angle that I'm looking at during this film; there was another camera positioned higher than my iPhone, and I kept glancing up at it instead.
Regardless, this is certainly the most unusual interview I've done this election campaign, even more so than that time we did an impromptu media conference with Premier Anna Bligh on her campaign bus.
But I'll let you draw your own conclusions...
I must say, the monotreme at least deserves credit for staying in character. He didn't take off the suit, or even the head, the whole time I was there. It was a muggy afternoon, too, and we had to turn the air-conditioning off because it was too loud.
