    You know the rorting is so widespread, I actually laughed at this one. At least he has the good sense to jump on the gravy train to support rugby league. It's only a matter of time before their trips to the brothels are considered part of "official" business.:-/

    Swines caught with nose in the trough again.

    Is there a single politician in this country that's not a joke, and truly represents the people?

    Maybe these clowns should be treated the same way as corporate embezzlers and face the courts.

    The only politician I've met, and admired, is Ted Mack, the former mayor of North Sydney and Independent MP in Federal parliament. One of the honourable things he did was to leave parliament just days before he was eligible to receive generous perks.
    He is one politician who you know was sincere to his beliefs, even if you didn't always agree with his viewpoint.

    they all do it and you would too if you were in their position. im not saying it's right, it's just the way it is.

    this isnt a rugby league story, or even a sports story. why is it in this section?

    And then they could be used to feed the poor. Fry 'em up with a few onions and a nice side salad.
    More useful than anything they've done in their corrupt lives....and they may be delicious.

    typical of today's society, the misinformed minority bleet, and those in power come running to soothe the bleeting. :(

    Hmm "misinformed minority" or "brain washed majority" both are as bad as each other.

    The bloke has to be called 'Barnaby' all his life. He might as well rort all he can. He will be ridiculed no matter what.

    Barnaby... lol.
