The High Court of Australia has found empirical evidence that disqualifies One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts from sitting in parliament.

Roberts joins a list of five federal politicans that have been ousted from parliament today, which include the likes of the DPM Barnaby Joyce, The Greens Scott Ludlum and Larissa Waters and Fiona Nash of The Nationals. Nick Xenophon and Matt Canavan are safe.

Speaking to a growing media pack outside the High Court this afternoon, an irate Roberts took aim at the powers that removed him from office.

“I asked for empirical evidence,” shouted Roberts, flanked by One Nation leader Pauline Hanson.

“And I certainly fucking got some! It’s disappointing that the ‘Twitteratti’ were given an opportunity to sway the court’s decision, which I plan to appear by the way,”

“As for my future, I plan to return home to Queensland and spend some time doing the things I enjoy the most, like throwing rocks at passing traffic and complaining about living in the greatest country on Earth. Before I leave, I just wanted to extend a giant ‘fuck you’ to all of you in the media. I hope there’s a fire at the press club and you all burn to death. Laters.”

The Advocate can reveal that Mr Roberts and Barnaby Joyce crossed paths on the way out of court this afternoon, where it’s alleged the outgoing senator attempted to high-five the Deputy Prime Minister.

Stopping short of complying, Joyce told Roberts to ‘fuck off’ before asking telling him that he never wanted to see his face ever again.
