TRAVEL RORTS

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

RE­GARD­ING travel rorts: The La­bor Party is a joke. Tony Burke, the ALP guy who spear­headed Bron­wyn Bishop’s down­fall, took his fam­ily on a tax­payer-funded hol­i­day. This makes what Bishop did a mere speck of dust in the eye in com­par­i­son. We can be guar­an­teed that Burke won’t have to re­sign, won’t face any sanc­tion, yet alone face crim­i­nal charges, and there’s a rea­son for this. The num­ber of rorters in Par­lia­ment is in plague pro­por­tions. Is there any of them, La­bor, Lib­eral, Green, who isn’t rort­ing? We can also be guar­an­teed that Ab­bott won’t gen­uinely seek to stop this sys­tem. The last guy who tried was Howard, and he was forced to con­cede de­feat when his min­is­ters were drop­ping like ten­pins, whilst ALP rorters re­mained safe. But then again, maybe it’s not their fault. Af­ter all, we know what they’re like, and yet we con­tinue vot­ing them back in. If you gen­uinely want things to change, then there’s a sim­ple way to do this. It’s called the bal­lot box.
