Absolutely fuck all countries that murder. We don't effect change however, by moving on from caring about those who transgress the laws of other countries (regardless of the justness or lack thereof of their laws - an acts legal status is not always a reflection of the ethics of that action).

Rudd has now called for us to become involved in attempting to influence the abolition of the death penalty around the world starting with the USA, a country that could step up and play a very positive leadership role in this area.

Actually the SA Libs are putting a moratorium on fracking here in South Oz - it's one of their policies I actually think is ok.

Yep, and Libs the state with the oldest demographic in Australia still only manage to just fall over the line, despite electoral boundaries redrawn in their favour. Nice work. It only took them 16 years to overcome a government that was only barely competent.

Yeah, well the Libs in Victoria aren't much better either, I'm afraid. We've voted in the biggest, most corrupt, most fiscally reckless socialist blowhard in human history and the Libs here seem at a loss as to how to knock him off.

Doesn't bode well for the future.

What? Rort the taxpayer to the tune of almost $400,000 during an election campaign? Whilst knowingly flaunting the laws that govern such matters?

And then spend a million fucking dollars of taxpayer dollars in the courts to try and cover it up?

The Libs did that?

I remember when the Liberal leader of NSW had to resign over an undeclared gift in the form of a bottle of wine.

Double standards?

Hooray for socialism.

No double standards on my part. Both parties push the system above and beyond the regulations. Sometimes they get caught.

Claiming that one party is somehow innocent is the double standard.

Quick! Look over there! A diversion.

That's a great non answer there. This particular incident has nothing to do with pushing boundaries. They committed 'fraud'. Electoral fraud. They robbed the people they're supposed to be representing.

And your answer? They're politicians right?! We allow them a few discrepancies, right?! Wrong.

They are held to the same standards as you and I.

Disgraceful behavior from the loony left once again.

To put it in perspective: You and 21 of your friends work for a company. Together, you steal $380,000.00 from your bosses (the victims). You and your 21 mates get caught and to save your sorry arses, you steal another $1.5 MILLION from your bosses (the victims) to pay for legal action to stop the public investigation.

With the victims $1.5 million stuffed in your pockets, you and your 21 mates go to the Supreme Court, where you lose. Arrogantly, you appeal the decision and lose again so you waste more of your bosses money trying your luck at the High Court where again, your case is thrown out. So far, you and your 21 mates have siphoned nearly 2 million dollars from your bosses (the victims) and completely refused to cooperate with the investigators.

So, today, you are caught out with your pants down and publicly shamed so you pay back the money, offer your bosses a half arsed apology and expect to go back to work like nothing's happened.

The victims, are us. The Victorian tax payers and companies who pay payroll tax on our behalf. 'You and your 21 mates' are the premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews and 21 of his MP's who used our taxes towards Labor's 2014 election campaign.

I don't care about political sides because this is not about team red or team blue. This is about MP's stealing our taxes and going unpunished. And to Labor voters, this is your moment of truth. Because 22 members of your team have stolen from you and betrayed your trust.

If this Premier and his 21 rotten to the core MP's have even a milligram of decency, they will hand in resignations today. Anything less is an insult and scoff to every Victorian tax payer.

I'm not condoning giving parties a few discrepancies at all. The Victorian Labor Party committed fraud, and should be penalised accordingly.

Well let's all just be grateful no one was "indecently" touched during the whole schmozzle. Cos that's the only crime the left give a shit about.

Apart from being racist that is.

Nice to see the Libs collapsing in quite a laughable manner. Kinda sums up the last few years in power. Time for the "adults" to stop leading and the kids to take over.

Yeah, it's pretty funny. I never thought I'd ever be on Turnbull's side, but here we are.
