This political satire places Australian politics in the heart of a Game of Thrones style setting. Whilst dealing with broad themes it does so through events topical at the time of writing. Currently King Malcolm of RoundCow, leader of the Houses of El and Pee and wearer of the Barbed Wire Thongs, leads the noble classes across the political landscape of the mythical Land of Austeroz. ...This of course could all change if Ex-King Tabbott of the Smuggled Budgie wins back the throne or Lord William Dick Reduction of the House of Alps leads his forces against the King.

Brilliant Aussie political fun
It took me a minute or two to warm to this. Then I loved it. Very clever take on the political shenanigans here in Oz. The subtleties are great. The play on names and the play on words are brilliant. A great mash up for fans of GOT and of Australian politics.
