Something about yes it’s ok because the other lot did it years ago... so it’s perfectly acceptable 

Expecting Politicians to use Public Money for the public good is political correctness gone mad

PS it rained yesterday so all you greenies, tree huggers, inner west tossers, Ferals and people who understand facts and data are wrong 
 

now back to knock one out of Peta Credilin

 

So using a football analogy. Massively important game with huge prize at stake.

One team is allowed to hack , headbutt , elbow the other team at will . But the other team playing for the same  big prize is not even allowed to tackle or multiple red cards are will be issued. But that's all ok because it's an advantage to my team. Different rules for the other team.

And you haven't denied being a hypocrite.

Hypocrite in regard to what?

I haven't at any point said that I'm ok with Labor Pork Barrelling or using public money for their own ends, as I'm not ok with it. In fact I have said I'm against it from both sides.

As a progressive I think "we" can and should do better. I don't accept that "oh it's a dirty game, let them get one with it". Which ever party or side of politics they are from they are elected to serve the people, and they should be focussing the limited resources governments have (i.e. our money) on that, not keeping themselves in power. 

But anyway its not about me is it? If I am a hypocrite or not, the Libs still used a large sum of public money to for their own ends.

Ok I 'll take your word for it.

As for the rest of the post it's just incredibly naive , politics all over the world is just not like that in a game where there are no bigger stakes.

From Machiavelli 's book " The Prince " put out in 1532 which stated that in politics " the end justify the means " to Graham Richardson's " Whatever It Takes" written in 1994 you will see it's just unrealistic and hypocrisy in what some posters put on here.

Your progressive utopian view of politics is just a pipe dream.

Get real.

Hooray , Australia need more convicted criminals to be kept here.

Maybe if one of them bashed you up you would have a different opion but then maybe not , your hatred of Dutton would override your smashed up face.

From the 1760s, better for 10 guilty to go free than one innocent be convicted.

In any case Dutton should be convicted of being a right bastard who his treatment of immigrants, the poor and the Australian population (treating us all as idiots.

The NBN and the coalition is in cuckoo land. Our internet is slowest in the western world and ranks below Kazakhstan (39). The have given us an inferior product with most of us on Fibre-to-the-node requiring up to a kilometre of rusting copper wire determining the speed to be ultra-slow.

I really don't need to keep fighting Labor lost. Yea but jihads have been known to travel. Canberra  and Hawaii ?

Auburn , Punchbowl , Bankstown , Granville . Merrylands , Guildford ?

And remember the Parramatta jihadi murder ?

 

You can't be serious.

He didn't have to announce where he was going, and the hotel he was staying at, just that  the country would be in the capable hands of whatshisname...while he was taking a week off.

He disappeared, hoping noone would notice his absence in the middle of a national crisis, because he knew it would not be looked upon favourably.

But then, as I heard our PM say, with his characteristic empty grin and shrug of his shoulders... he is no different from the local plumber, who deserved a break at the end of the year.

I think he probably came to regret that approach.

The idea that he took off in secret because ...jihadis.. is absurd.

So he is hopeless as a Prime Minister can't achieve anything but you scream when he is not here ? You miss him do you  ,Oh  Scott is not here  i'm so stressed , can't sleep , who is running the country !

Just looking for any hook to criticize the guy because  you hate him. Told you before don't hate , it's self destructive.

As if noone would notice - what a stupid statement , of course journalists and others in political circles would have been aware.It was low key because of security concerns . You or I don't know the security advice or threats that may have been in play.

Anyway Scott is here now , relax. And he's bought the rain.

Lastly , when can he go on holidays , there is always some crisis according to you with this guy.

Not a problem for some professions they get , what about 10 weeks a year holiday.

You can still vote liberal and think Morrison is a good PM, and also admit that he cocked up on this one.

Your fandom of him is way over the top, it’s like he can do no wrong in your eyes and any admission he got it wrong would you becoming a communist 

I love Lucy Zelic, I really do, she’s ace, but I’ll admit that she got it wrong in the Stajic matildas thing 

surely you can see that at the very least the PM sodding off on holiday during a major national disaster was a mistake even if not in practical terms, but in political terms.

its ok you can still love him afterwards
