But the Senator is not too phased if she runs out tissues either.

"I did come up with a Plan B, I thought because when we first got up here back in Parliament we had no toilet paper. And the thing I had sitting on my desk there was The Australian newspaper," she said. 

"I get that daily and I thought the worst thing I can do is cut strips off that as a Plan B and use that if necessary," Lambie said.
