In the long run, Turnbull will "get" Dutton. He's in the pot but, his goose is yet to be cooked.They picked on the wrong man to stuff around. MT is much more intelligent than the whole coalition. He will get Dutton and I hope he does. Someone described Dutton as an old school plod that sees everything in black and white. If Dutton is so sure of his position why doesn't he refer himself to the HC? As for Hansen and Katter, they are both idiots and don't have the necessary intellect to do anything worthwhile in parliament.'I again ask fellow Railpagers - what did we do in a former life so badly wrong that our karma was these hopelessly selfish, vain and egotistical people whose only interest is in having power for the sake of it? What did we do to deserve these arsehats, honestly!'I'm not sure what the problem is - but you certainly can't compare any of these people to the stature of former PM's such as Curtin, Chifley and Menzies. Whitlam I'm not a fan of but at least he had an agenda other than corporate mate-ship after politics. Even Billy Hughes resigned from the Labor Party on his principle - which was that conscription should occur. Again, at least these men had principles and agendas not exclusively related to either enriching themselves personally or just getting their names in the history books.
Buggered if I know in either former or current lives but it must have been pretty bad.
A pox on them ALL. Male, female, Labor, Liberal or whatever.
The only person who entered Parliament with an honest intention was GUY FAWKES .................
Credit at least to Gillard and Rudd that they've not continued to comment on current politicians from outside the tent - the LNP appear to be incapable of exorcising this leadership ghost. Again, there's serious problems that need attending to like the energy crisis... in fact I take it as a measure of our descent as a nation that we can't stop our gas from being pillaged by multinationals. Image leaders of the past standing by doing nothing while this rot went on - it just isn't in our national interest to allow it to happen and yet nobody in parliament (bar Hanson and Katter) wants to assert sovereignty and stop the theft.
May have taken a page from Keating's book, in reference to Hewson. I wanna do you slowly.
