It's a wonder someone in the alp wasn't smart enough to clip Berk around the ears and tell him to STFU.

Pot meet kettle

Unintended consequences = Karma!

Says it all Paul. Brilliant. As the good book says..."those without sin may cast the first stone". I sincerely hope he burns (metaphorically speaking). What a vacuous parvenu.

I know a chap, lovely bloke, would give him my shirt if he asked for it.
Point is, he is entitled to a "free, cuppa 'n bun" for smoko. He never eats or drinks it, but takes the Bun/Bikkie and feeds it to the birds. ( literally)
"It is my right/entitled to get it, I can do what I like with it"

So, is there a problem here? even of infintesimally small significance.

Phoney Jurke.

The thing is once Parliament sits again there will be a new Speaker,the Coalition will have a little bit of sport with the ALP over it,the media will forget it and this time next year so will the electorate.I expect that Bronny will call a press conference and say that she won't be standing as the member for Mackellar,but I think she will let the Party sweat a bit first.

What goes around comes around.

Kinda reminds me of the old saying about putting your brain into gear before opening your mouth.

easy solution, remove all entitlements and allowances, let them spend their already ample wages on doing that which they are already paid for: being an elected representative. removal of the trough will sort the wheat from the chaff.

All politicians, servants and citizens of the Australian Public and country, should have the bar set at the same height.
No servant should receive benefits or priveleges,higher than the level, as set for our people who put their lives on the line for me 'n you.
I speak of our Naval, Army and Air Force personnel, our Policing forces.
I speak of not only day to day stuff, but superannuation the lot.
The days of largesee, should be over. That our pollies put themselves on such a high pedestal, is as a result of their own imagination.
Self important bastards, should be pulled back into line real quick.

Burn bastard burke - burn ..

This is the same scenario as with HSU Williams being dobbed in by Cathy Jackson and later finding our Jackson was just as bad .

It would be an 'Amani" billed to the taxpayer no doubt.

Great work Paul.

Using Labor and smart in the same sentence, that does not ever work could ever be contemplated.

Burke telling lies on ABC 24

For Burke to accuse Bronny of travel rorts while knowing full well he is also guilty shows beyond doubt how completely stupid he really is. Maybe he is so conceited and arrogant he sees himself as being above the law. Great 'toon Paul

I hope your cartoon comes true PZ , but nothing has happened yet .

Arcy. Not only in this instance. When Abbott goes about the penalty rates again - re having Sat/Sun rates the same - SHITTON has already started his diatribe. Isn't this the same person who sold out the employees of the cleaning co and the mushroom co to cut their rates TOTALLY so that he could get more power in the party. Another person on a suicide mission. However the IDIOT is so up himself he won't see it coming. But the rest of the party will be going into panic mode.
