Dear Mr Windsor, I am very pleased to hear that you are a member of the Parliamentary Privileges Committee, as I believe you to be an honest and open man.
The reason I am pleased is that I think this referral brings discredit to our political system at this time and the only way to purge it is for an honest man to make his voice heard. (For evil to prosper good men do nothing).
To put my comments in context I am generally disappointed in most of our politicians.
I understood the reasons for the Prime Minister changing the Labor Party's response to the carbon tax; but I will never forgive her reneging on the agreement with Andrew Wilkie � to say we did not present his motion as we know it would have lost is a very cynical tactic.
I would support her if it had been put to the House and then everyone could see how each member voted on the issue and if it was lost then the current option could have been put as a back-up.
As for Tony Abbott, I refuse to refer to him as The Honorable: "my promise is not a promise unless I have given it to you written in blood".
Simply each week I am disgusted by his behaviour and the behaviour of those he supports ie Christopher Pyne.
In fact they make me ashamed of our parliament.
This referral to the Parliamentary Privileges Committee makes me think of Animal Farm by George Orwell or the dark days of Stalin's "show trials" or the witch trials in Salem.
I am also made to wonder were the following people referred to the Parliamentary Privileges Committee: Peter Reith when his parliamentary credit card was used by his son etc; the minister who declared a "black and white" television when in fact it was a coloured one; the "teddy bear" that was smuggled into the country; the lady who stole and assaulted a security guard.
I could go on but I really do feel sick about the hypocrisy and dishonesty. The Honorable Robert Menzies and the Honorable John Curtin would be rightly ashamed of the depths to which our parliament has fallen.
