Double Standards

 Sydney Morning Herald

Tony Abbott has been accused of double standards for not sacking a senator that shoved another lib and called him a poofter.

Somehow the ALP have lost their moral compass and this is just another example.

“Under the principles the Labor government has supported and continues to support Senator Heffernan is entitled to due process and the presumption of innocence,” senior minister Craig Emerson said.

But Dr Emerson said if Mr Abbott applied his own principles he’d “refuse to accept Senator Heffernan’s tainted vote, he will stand him down from chairing the relevant Senate committee and he will move to dismiss Senator Heffernan from the Liberal Party”.

Only in the warped parallel universe of Labor would a scumbag unionist who ripped off his union for $500,000 including putting hookers on the union credit card would be the moral equivalent of a bit of jostling and calling someone a poofter.

    What about the Liberal Senator  who was convicted  after a shop lifting ( stealing) and decking a security guard who tried to stop her.
     This is fairly recent too . A bit like Hon Nick Smith  who sailed on  with his convictions but his nasty  character finally caught up with him

    Nick Smith is a principled man. Huge loss to senior ranks, and only brought down by loyalty and decency actions of his own. It should never have happened. Both he and Paula Bennett are superb public servants and leaders. Only an inadequate person who was jealous would be trying to suggest otherwise.
