Labor is a complete joke.

At the first sign of impropriety Liberal ministers resign from parliament, Sam Dastardly, on his second strike goes to the back bench with his fat salary slightly trimmed.

Perhaps the ABC can work its magic and buff Dastardly up again,

From the link,
'Tasmanian Liberal Senator Eric Abetz said the ABC, as the national broadcaster, had to be seen by the community as “not being biased in anybody’s favour.”

“To do an Australian Story on a deputy whip in the Senate is passing strange because usually the Australian Story is reserved for more prominent individuals — if they are dealing with parliamentarians. And Senator Dastyari’s career thus far has not been exactly exemplary.

“One wonders why, out of all the parliamentarians they could have chosen, they sought to assist a parliamentarian who is launching a book when his only career highlight thus far has been his disgraceful acceptance of donors’ money to pay personal accounts.”

Greens senator Peter Whish-Wilson said it looked to many like the ABC had provided Senator Dastyari with “new tyres and an oil change” in a media pit stop on his bumpy road to political redemption.

“The ABC should have protocols in place before giving a sitting politician this sort of soft exposure, especially given it was timed at a moment when Sam was in over-drive promoting his book, and ultimately political career. He has been nick named ‘showman Sam’ for a reason,” he said.'

Yes it seems true. The senator for China's problems caused the ABC to interrupt their nightly jihad against Don Burke to spend 24 hours explaining why the Senator wasn't traitorous but was really just a naughty boy.But I'm sure the ABC will get back to criticising Burke for saying bad things to someone 30 years ago.

When David Combe was found to be playing footsie with the Russians back in the early 1980s, Hawke forced him out of all positions of power and the parliament and all aspects of politics. Even people like Mick Young, who was merely peripherally involved in the scandal suffered lasting damage despite being a Hawke confidante.

Compare the actions then to those now and observe how far we have fallen in standards and moral rectitude. Observe and lament.

Dastyari could very well be in breach of section 44 of the Constitution. See "Under any acknowledgement of obedience or adherence to a foreign power". Communist China.

like with all the women abusers the left often protects their own. Imagine it was Abbott. There would be no room in newspapers or the abc for anything else.
