WARNING: mega rant follows
The current ALP government is morally corrupt for a host of reasons covered on this blog and in other forums. A government elected on a lie and kept in power by liars, turncoats and self-interested parasites – I’m holding back my anger – intent on taking this country down the fiscally bankrupt socialist EU path.
The ALP no longer represents the hopes and aspirations of this nation, as evidenced by the recent crushing election defeats in QLD and NSW.
(The ALP has not enjoyed legitimate election success since 2007. In Tasmania, the ALP went back on their election commitment not to do a deal with the Greens in order to stay in power, despite the Coalition taking by far the biggest block of votes. In South Australia, the ALP stays on in power via an election gerrymander, which allows them to consistently win elections with less than 50 per cent of the vote on 2PP.)
Craig Thomson should not be in Parliament, and if we had a government and speaker that were above approach then in all likelihood the speaker would have issued an arrest warrant for Thomson and he would be in jail.
Any thought therefore of going easy or soft on Thomson should not be entertained. There is right and wrong and it could not be more clear that Thomson and his ALP cohorts are wrong.
Thomson is in Parliament because Gillard needs his vote, and Thomson needs Parliamentary privilege to help shield him from legal prosecution and bankroll any further legal fees he may incur. There is nothing about this arrangement that is in the national interest, and the national interest must come before individuals as corrupt as Gillard and Thomson.
