Mr.Zanetti you have made CRYSTAL DEEEEVINE caricature just like Kermit the "FROG" dressed in Human Clothing.Does Devine really have BUG EYES. I thought it was because what he has hidden up the Khyber Pass.He definitely wears tight underwear causing that HIGH Pitched Lisping Screachy voice.

Cheus can look at as much gay porm on his phone now as he wishes. And get as many rent boys as he wants. A pork barrelling mincing poodle. Good riddance.

51 year old Christopher Pyne decides to retire -
Why are 60 Elected MPs not seeking re-election ?

A wonderful RORT – don’t waste your tears on them!!!!

How sad is this. Having to give up your job so you can get more money. AND they tell us they do it for their constituents NOT FOR MONEY. By the way check out what pensioners get in this country.

Sixty elected members of the federal government have now reported they have made the decision not to run in the upcoming next election!

It’s a very high number compared to previous elections. Some of them tell us that it’s for family reasons, others for their desire to serve their fellow citizens in other fields and many other great stories to make us cry for them.

Besides all the tear jerking that politicians have been giving about retiring here is something else to consider.

In 2015 a change in the pension for MP’s ensures that the age of full retirement for an MP having served at least 6 years, will no longer be 55 years but 65 years. Thus any MP not yet 65 and who wants to benefit from the present pension scheme need only not run in the next election and thus will draw for 10 years longer a government pension of over $100,000/year.

For an elected MP approaching 55 and who is not running, that means about $1 million that he/she would not receive should he/she run and win again. One should also add the severance premium (between $80,000 and $125,000) upon his/her departure.

You can now understand better all these sudden “family emergencies”, appreciate the newfound desire to advance his/her career in a government job or a committee of some sort and have two or three salaries (and possibly two or three pensions). Not bad as a justification to not run eh?

Another factor may well be what Wayne Glew has achieved with the Privy Council. Many MPs, Judiciary, Councilors etc will be charged with TREASON
and there are many men like this with long memories
Lying by ommission

Another fan and supporter of Turnbull gets the message and pulls stumps. A few more of the treacherous Liberal lefties left but fortunately for us and the Liberal Party their number are dwindling. A clean out of traitors was long overdue.

Now that both Turd and Pyne are gone can we dump the stupid, idiotic French sub plan!

It's good to see that all the rats that are leaving are of the Left!

The only right thing Gillard ever said was when she called him "a mincing little poodle"

What pisses me of is that there has been no attempt to explain the choice of the French subs, which on the surface, looks like a stupid choice, compared with other options.

Goodbye Paaaain-fool Poine. No regrets - just relief that you are finally going. Your sell-fish perversion has left a scar on our nation.

I hope his submarine contract can be fixed off at about the same time colluder and backstabber Pyne 'fix' off.

The cleansing continues. The era of Turnbull damage is nearly done.

Does that mean we won't ever have to listen to its voice again?

Thanks Paul, Perfect, I couldn't stand the little slimy grub.

Ripper, well done Paul.

Pyne one of the Black Hand faction leaders and the go between who used GetUp to undermine Abbott MP from 2009. The pension changes are playing a part in resignations now but the loss of Black Hand leader and power is also a major factor.

Pyne's finally fixed it. Lovely Paul. :-))
