The Liberals’ real slogan: weddings, parties, anything – a reprise

I wrote this about parliamentary entitlements rorting back in October 2013. It has some interesting numbers in relation to senior Government figures including the PM and Brandis. I finish up by saying:

‘The AFP won’t investigate possible misuse of parliamentary expenses independently or systemically. They and the politicians are all part of the ruling class and won’t do anything to undermine the facade of parliamentary respectability.’

Nothing over the last few weeks has undermined my argument of almost 2 years ago. It has only reinforced it.

The Bishopric has fallen: now for the wholly corrupt See of parliament

Abbott said the problem was not individual parliamentarians but the system of entitlements itself. That is a bit like blaming the bank for lax security rather than the thieves for stealing the money. Certainly capitalist politicians are corrupt. However the whole capitalist system is corrupt. Mass struggle against it in all its manifestations is the answer.

End business entitlements instead, Hockey

To stop the Liberal barbarians in the distance we have to stop the Labor barbarians at the gate.
