Ask Robb? Seriously you think LNP pollies don’t partake in more than an occasional Chinese Banquet.To me this is one of the problems inherent in this issue - the partisan nature of it and Railpage is a great example of what is going on in the wider community in this regards.
Labor pollies can go gaga when let near the trough whereas the Libs are born to trough.
When an ALP member comes unstuck ALP sympathisers come running to their defence and point the finger at "the other side". And the reverse happens when a Coalition member is involved.
This deflects some of the spotlight away from the real problem and then (in most cases, clearly not Mr Dastyari though) it goes quietly away.
The system is broken and the losers are Australia and it's citizens. People who blindly support one side of politics over another are part of the problem.
Forget the Class war, the new war is against any and all members of parliament who undermine the great democracy that we have with their self serving ways. And there are a long list of them on both sides of the house.
If we don't fight this now our great democracy we will lose it forever. A democracy that saw a Locomotive Driver from Bathurst rise to become Prime Minister, a man who himself followed another ordinary Australian and probably the greatest Prime Minister Australia has ever seen, John Curtain, into office.
Put down your Red or Blue flags comrades and gentlemen, it is time for a new fight.
