Aussie’s Trevor Mallard?

Much better looking but has the same tits for hands attitude to tweeting as Trevor Mallard:

Former NSW premier Kristina Keneally is being investigated over whether she breached parliamentary rules by tweeting disparaging comments about fellow MPs and the deliberations of a joint select committee during a series of fiery exchanges this morning.

The committee is investigating the value of the Parliamentary Budget Office established by the former Labor government just before the March election to carry out independent costing of election promises.

Ms Keneally, who is a member of the Parliamentary Budget Office Committee, began taunting its chairman, the Liberal MP for Baulkham Hills, David Elliott, on her Twitter account during deliberations.

“In Parliamentary Budget Office Committee meeting. Liberals trying to railroad the report through. Won’t let the report be considered in detail,” she tweeted about 9.30am.

Later she began attacking the Mr Elliott. “It’s fairly clear that David Elliott doesn’t know the standing rules of committee,” Ms Keneally tweeted. “Somewhat embarrassing for him.”

Soon after, she added: “Elliott just does not understand how submissions and committees work”, before tweeting: “The Libs and Nats now inserting assertions in the report that have no basis of fact in any submission that came before the committees.”

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
