Legendary political reporter Laurie Oakes has fired a parting shot at federal parliament as he sails off into retirement.

“I think politics is in a bit of a trough at the moment,” Oakes told Jeremy Cordeaux on FIVEaa. “I think the politicians have got in the habit of talking about themselves too much.”

“I think the punters resent the fact that their concerns are not addressed nearly as much as all the infighting and squabbling and stabbing that goes on in the political parties.

“[Politicians] seem to be incapable of talking about anything except their own grimy affairs.”
