Anthony “convoy of incontinence” Albanese wants a gentler kinder parliament:
If Tony Abbott is in a position, as he said after (Labor MP) Greg Wilton committed suicide all those years ago … he spoke about the need to have a kinder, gentler parliament,” Mr Albanese told ABC radio.
“Well, all of us are in a position to deliver that, and I think we should be judged on what we do, rather than just what we say.”
Albanese and Labor want a gentler parliament?
You mean without Labor’s three years of daily barrage of vicious personal attacks on the Opposition Leader?
You mean without the bizarre vicious execution of their own leader, ‘psychopath’ Kevin Rudd, not once but twice?
But Thomson is not to be outdone in the hypocrisy stakes, reaching new heights during his hour long delusional speech blaming all bar aliens for his corrupt behaviour documented in AFW’s 1100 pages, claiming that not him, but Tony Abbott is “…not only is he unfit to be a prime minister; in my view, he is unfit to be an MP”. Now you’d think that this piece of psychological projection reaches the top of the Hypocrisy gauge, but no, you would be wrong. Thomson today outdoes his personal best in hypocrisy with an Olympic effort in complaining that “Mr Abbott was insincere when he said he had “sympathy” for him. “To say he has sympathy, and then to angrily call for me to resign in the same breath, shows just how insincere Mr Abbott is,“.
Picture Thomson as a man occupying the second highest office in our country, viciously kicking and beating Tony Abbott, Williamson, Jackson, FWA and every one else from behind parliamentary privilege as they all lie on the ground legally defenceless, while at the same time shouting leave me and my privileges alone, I am a poor defenceless victim.
For those arguing Abbott is causing Thomson grief, remember that any decent man would step aside or resign faced with 1100 pages of evidence against him and thus remove himself from the line of fire. It is Gillard who insists Thomson remain a voting member, purely for her survival. It is Gillard who is forcing Thomson to remain exposed. And it is the public whose sanity is being tested by having their MP caught red-handed, spend an hour telling them as good as that aliens had done it, not him.
For those who say Parliament should not be judge and jury, they are using a straw man argument. Apart from the hypocrisy of this argument, what with previous attacks by Labor on Hollingworth and our army and Gillard’s removing Thomson’s carcass from Labor party after ‘crossing a line’, no one is asking the parliament to convict Thomson of a crime. The parliament has the duty to judge if a member is bringing the parliament into disrepute, if they have lost the confidence of the public. They have a duty to dissociate themselves from him and his vote. After all, I presume we have higher requirements for parliamentarians than just absence of a criminal conviction.
For those who argue let the poor man be and let legal proceedings take their course, they are forgetting that this legal course under FWA has been dragging on for 4 years – longer than the Nuremberg trials of Nazi criminals. During all this time, he has sat in the parliament and made laws governing you and me, our children, our businesses and our foreign affairs. It is clear that if pressure was not brought to bear as is being done now, he would have been re-endorsed and gone on escaping legal scrutiny perhaps indefinitely, the way other union official are want to do…a name Wilson comes to mind.
No, in this upside down Labor world, where No carbon tax means carbon tax, where a lying incompetent Gillard is PM and the most effective and connected Leader of the opposition is “not fit to be a parliamentarian”, where cabled NBN is the solution for a wireless world, where Labor’s epic serial failures on people smuggling is the fault of the opposition who had solved the problem and on and on, in this upside down world, Thomson is not the victim. He is not even an enigmatic Azaria Chamberlain case. He is just a privileged grub escaping responsibility, nothing more than an Australian version of O.J. Simpson.
