Nothing like hypocrisy though
If every pollie who lied and/or took a questionable meeting with someone got booted out of parliament fair enough. The treason stuff is over the top as the guy had sh#t.
To ensure what’s good for this goose is indeed good for the rest of them, then:
1. Definitely need a federal ICAC.
2. Pass that bill banning foreign political donations. The government’s been sitting on that for 15 months.
3. How do you stop influence by proxy. There are local political benefactors who have close relationships with foreign entities (no prizes here )
4. Extend a conflict of interest standard for 5 years after a pollie retires.
Excuse me for being emotive, but IMHO I don't believe the treason stuff is over the top here Groundrelay.
Respectfully, Sam's has his chance in the Senate and he's clearly F,,ked it and he's F..ked it BIG time!!!!. Seriously, in light of the allegations if you counted how often or how bad a politician in the history of our federal parliament had stepped on their c0ck with the seriousness off the allegations, could we have found a worse individual than this absolute flog??
Give me a name in his place...........anyone........please......???? No??....
Well I say KICK HIM OUT!!! Its not a good look, but OK where's his excuse for his idiocy..... Oh, he hasn't got one - Really, Seriously, WTF.... You're an Aussie, are you.... really? Nup, sorry NOT buying it....
Its a pity we don't have American judiciary here in this case, because this has to be about a serious enough offence to get you dragged out the back, shot in the head, dumped in a ditch, and no one EVER asks about you're name again!!
OK, Rant over.. This is not personal, and its not about Sam the individual. I really don't care who you are, what party you're in, your ethnic background, who you associate with sexually etc etc and all that. I really don't. I'm not at all interested in all the leftist smeg and the mindless crap that it entails.
The key point here is the level of the perceived crime here and how bad it stinks.....
And guess what Sam... IT Stinks, and it STINKS BAD MATE. Now get OUT!!!
Sorry, no offence intended, but no regard for him as he's clearly made his bed on the other side of the fence..
All IMHO of course..
ps. we need to set the benchmark for our pollies, and knife them by it if the standards aren't met. Social media may have its benefits after all. Hopefully
