THE CROWS AIN’T CROWING ABOUT THIS BLOKE
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
In September of 2012, it was reported in the pickeringpost.com that a certain South Australian Labor politician (and former Police Minister) named Bernard Finnigan was about to be charged with no fewer than 14 offences relating to accessing child pornography between August 2010 and April 2011.
This afternoon, over three years later, he was found guilty.
Mr Finnigan’s maiden speech to Parliament went like this: “I pay tribute to my parents for my Catholic faith. I would like to acknowledge that, despite my stumbles along the way and however imperfect my efforts, I am a servant of Christ and a subject of His reign in history."
Because Labor’s pre-selection process is factionally driven by unions and never more than a predetermined farce, no-one has the ability to stand up and suggest that this person should not be considered for Parliament.
Certain people would have known of Mr Finnigan’s devious predilection for child sex and allowed that fact to go undisclosed.
So thanks to Labor's union-based pre-selection process, SA voters never knew who they were electing.
Not only was his name ordered suppressed during three years of legal manoeuvring but the Labor Government allowed him to retain his seat in the Upper House so that his level of income would not be diminished.
This is an indictment on ex Penny Wong partner, Premier Jay Weatherill, whose Government held on to power despite the LNP gaining 53 per cent of the primary vote in the latest State election (the LNP has lost in the past despite holding a massive 57 per cent of the vote).
This stinks of a gerrymander of Bjelke Petersen proportions.
And as for the suppression order? I ignored it... what if this monster lived next door and had offered to babysit my kids?
