    The entitlement mentality of Abbott's friends is remarkable!

    I think they've all forgotten that they're merely humble representatives of their electors view points whether they personally agree with them or not.

    I'm hearing a lot about 'conscience votes' and 'personal views' during the current politiking on border security, gay marriage, GST.

    Has anyone had their door knocked, the phone called/polled or seen a politician even ask for guidance on what the people want?
    I haven't.

    Oh... and here's the political joke to go with this post;

    After getting their arses handed to them in the last election over (amongst other things) an ETS & being soft on illegal immigration, the ALP has decided to head into the next election on a platform of (amongst other things) putting in place an ETS and a policy of going soft on illegal immigration.

    I agree with you completely, they should just lie about what they're going to do like the libs.

    I'd be interested in meeting some elected officials to have a chat, but I'd probably get arrested since I am just a tax paying scum of a citizen.

    Moving on, since Bron seems to be welded into the Libs power structure and must have pillow talk dirt on some of the big boys, and on the basis that you have to laugh, or you'll cry:

    Not so much a joke, but amusing to anyone whose come across the pathetic wannabee uniform chasers who, if they could pass the psych tests, wish they were cops and soldiers.

    There is of course a darker undercurrent, but this is Political JOTD and shit happens.

    Things are a bit rough in politics. Imagine having to dob in your dealer just for a few political points.

    Confidential illicit drugs source? Sounds like she's claiming travel allowance on getting high now.

    Is anybody else shocked that she only claimed $288? I feel like realistically there should at least be a 0 on the end.

    Malcolm Turnbull has a sense of humour (and a few ambitions it would appear)

    Just verifying she is a sycophant. (meaning - a self-seeking fawning parasite.)

    BTW is Shorten leaking this information to take the public/media focus off him?

    I put bets on Malcolm Turnbull, especially after was photographed taking a train and prominently holding the ticket. I believe Bishop absolutely despises Turnbull and Hockey for some reason and no doubt has sabotaged many of their efforts, so there is the motivation.
