Checkout the recent episode of “you can’t ask that” with ex-politicians talking pretty openly if you haven’t seen it already.

I can’t do a proper link to it on iview from my phone, but it’s here somewhere; https://iview.abc.net.au/show/you-can-t-ask-that

Should be required viewing if you want to have a go at politicians, not because they should be above criticism, but because most of it is so illinformed.

Wow, the PM earns $330,000 dollars a year plus super plus car plus flights, whoopy farkin chook, if the total of this adds up to $500,000 a year it's pretty pathetic, 24 hours a day seven days a week equals $57 an hour.
Not to many pollies floating around in parliament on the pre 2004 super scheme and it's getting less each election.
We got bloody AFL footballers running around earning twice that, give me a break. Yes they have short careers but many more last longer than politicians.

Again if you don't like it put your hand up, have a crack but I suppose it's easier to sit back and snipe, whinge and moan.

Rant over.

From the article:

"at the weekend three candidates had to step down because of their eligibility to sit in parliament"

Is this crap ever going to go away ??? >:(

For God's sake, please just re-write that one section & forget about all this dual-citizenship nonsense! ::)

Wouldn’t they have to actually be sitting in parliament to be able to pass those amendments?
What are they up to so far, a whole 7 or 8 sitting days this year..... ??? ::)
By the time they’ve finished shouting insults at each other, that leaves about 36 seconds in the last 4 months to debate and pass legislation....
