Because Foxy, it has become a racket !
There is money involved, more if you claim to be aborigine.
To make a false claim is a criminal act and the bureaucracy who get
paid very big salaries to administer such things never check or there
would be a pile on of complaint. Their ABC pays the extortion itself.
If someone claims an aboriginal payment or privilege and they are 50%
should they get prorata ?

The Senator is pro-hunting and the sustainable harvesting (killing) of animals for human use, even protected Australian fauna.

Good on her!

errrr Bazz,

You need to get your facts right.

Lidia Thorpe's record speaks for itself. She has
been actively involved with the Aboriginal
communities for a very long time and has achieved
a great deal for them. She is not out to "rort"
anyone least of all her own people. Her grandmother
Alma Thorpe was the founder of the Victorian
Aboriginal Health Service.

For your information - Lidia Thorpe WON the seat of
Northcote at the 2017 by-election in Victoria.
She was sworn in as
a Member of Parliament on 28th November 2017 and
delivered her first speech to the Assembly the following
day.

It was in June 2020 that Lidia Thorpe was pre-selected by
the Victorian Greens members to fill the FEDERAL Senate
vacancy caused by former leader Richard Di Natale's
resignation.

She is the first Aboriginal woman to firstly represent
Victoria in the Senate and is the first Aboriginal
FEDERAL parliamentarian for the Greens.

You're welcome.

Thorpe was appointed, not voted in by anybody. Even under normal circumstances, Senate candidates are a shoo in if their party puts them in the right position on the ticket at normal election times. They don't have to work for it.

As for appearances, I think her tan is a least as good as Stan Grant's.

Thorpe will open her gob to badmouth everyone not like herself; nobody will take any notice, and she will soon pass from the public eye.
