The second Greens senator in as many weeks will resign from parliament amid reports that she is originally from another planet.

More accurately though, Larissa Waters, the party’s deputy, is expected to quit this afternoon after it was revealed that she has a dual citizenship with Canada, which in a way might as well be another planet.

Her resignation follows the dramatic departure of Scott Ludlam last week, who revealed that he was a dual citizen with New Zealand.

“Look we’ve known that the Greens are from another planet for many years now,” a coalition spokesperson told Broken News.  “These resignations are just further evidence of that.”

Labor also went on the attack, channeling Oscar Wilde, with a spokesperson declaring that “to lose one Senator may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.”
