Both of the two men that were accused of crimes whilst propping up Gillard have now been convicted of those crimes. Combine this with forming government with Oakeshott and Windsor who sold out their electorates and the supreme act of betrayal to bring in the carbon tax, and the last Labor government was as morally bankrupt as it was as possible to be. The supreme effort that Labor is making to get us to forget their disastrous 6 years of populist incompetence, is hampered by what is emerging as Shorten's murky past.

Labor's continued dishonesty is highlighted by Labor's populist voting down of policy savings that they themselves introduced to parliament, and promised at the election.

God help Australia from politicians that promise people what they want instead of what they need.

SM, I know its a stretch target but maybe a little less partisan in your posting would help. From the article

"The winery visits occurred while Mr Slipper was a Liberal National MP but before he became an independent MP and federal speaker the highest parliamentary position in Australia."

What you wrote didn't quite say otherwise but it did focus on just Labor. Its that kind of partisan approach from both sides that makes it difficult to get genuine reform to the self serving mess that Australian politics has become.

Dear RObert,

Well said!

What I don't understand is - why wasn't Mr Slipper
allowed to pay back his debt like the PM and others
in his party were?

Foxy,

Lol!

Slipper was charged because "apparently" someone from "outside" Finance reported him the AFP.

All the other Liberals who were rorting like there was no tomorrow got to take advantage of the Minchin Protocol.

Rort - rort - and rort again seems to have been LNP policy.

Dear Poirot,

What I find difficult to understand is SM's
persistant finger-pointing only at Labor.

Foxy, you do seem to do the same in thing as SM though. Lots of finger pointing at the LNP and very quiet about Labor doing the same stuff. The same issue, just a different side of the fence.
