Perhaps someone else should step aside, also
OK. So Speaker of the House, Peter Slipper, has stepped aside amid sexual harrassment allegations.*
Note, these allegations are completely unproven, yet Slipper has done the honourable thing and ceased to play an active role in the Parliament of Australia, at least until these allegations are found to be true, or indeed, not true.
That’s the proper thing to do. The right course. The honourable way.
There’s another bloke in Parliament who may have inproperly, er…
Used his union credit car to pay for hookers.
And the people the Honourable Craig Thomson represents, they’re the people who bust a gut at 2am in the morning.
They’re the people who don’t get paid much, but boy oh boy do they do a lot.
Cleaning bed pans.
Oops, I just puked on my lunch tray.
That cist is rotting.
But no worries, the bloke who was looking after the underpaid Health Services Union workers, at 2am, he was allegedly buying hookers.
With their money.
Aw, thanks for looking after that cancer patient, I’ll just go and blow your wages getting my end wet while wifey keeps the bed warm at home.
Only allegations thus far, however.
Who knows? Maybe some mystery person not only got a hold of Craig Thomson’s HSU credit card, but is also able to perfectly replicate his signature.
But does Craig, the Honourable Craig Thomson, step aside while Fair Work Australia spends almost four years avoiding the cops, only to produce a report that is worthless?
No, the Honourable Craig Thomson does not.
Used other people’s money, people who do it tough, to get his jollies on – allegedly.
Wifey was at home, his minions were cleaning puke, and he has the Prime Minister’s full support.
Full support. Full Confidence.
