These Coalition politicians are more like “born to rule” types who’ve got their hands back in the till.
As for their cheerleaders – please could someone link me to where all the “let’s stop the waste” right-wingers are damning the frontbench Liberal/National politicians who’ve been caught out charging the taxpayers obscene amounts for their social jaunts? As for Barnaby Joyce’s “study” trip to Malaysia (and the ridiculously expensive flight back) with those laughable “insights” he may as well have pulled off Wikipedia – could there be a more blatant example of snouts in the trough? Where have the great defenders of taxpayers’ money gone? Where’s Catallaxy? Where’s the Daily Telegraph?
Imagine the front pages if this had been anyone in Parliament not from the Coalition.
PS: Yes, I’m calling hypocrite first.
UPDATE: LEAVE TONY ALONE!!11!!
