Out of 75 senators, only 6 voted to forego payrises until the federal government brings the budget back into surplus!
The Libs, Labor and Greens showed themselves to be the fat cats we know they are by putting their own salaries ahead of the Australian budget.
Interesting to note that senators and members receive an annual allowance by way of basic salaray – $199,040 from 1 January 2016.
Surely that’s an ample salary?
So you’re probably wondering who the senators were who voted to freeze their pay.. Actually, you’re probably not. It’s quite obvious who the 6 are!
Australian Conservatives Cory Bernardi
Liberal Democrats David Leyonhjelm
One Nation Pauline Hanson, Malcolm Roberts & Brian Burston
Independant Jacqui Lambie
The petulant parasitic puppet Richard Di Natale of The Greens said he was:
“sympathetic to the intent of the proposal but wanted it amended to freeze pay rises until the government was prepared to address inequality in Australia”
In other words he won’t take a pay freeze or heaven forbid a pay cut until the loony left stop crying over spilt milk and “inequality”…
Well, to Senator Di Natale, your Green and Labor cohorts, the Nick Xenophon Team and the rest of the fat cats in the Liberal Party (who still don’t know what their constituents want!)
I feel I’d be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to send you a message on behalf of the vast majority of Australians:
Sussan Ley has been crucified (and rightfully so) for her lackadaisical attitude towards spending the tax-payers money, but she isn’t the only MP under fire, Julie Bishop also came under fire for her use of taxpayer dollars to attend a polo match.. What do they have in common? Female, Blonde.. Let’s look deeper, Oh.. That’s right! They’re both ministers for the Liberal Party.
Since the majority of the mainstream media are overlooking the expenditure of further left-wing politicians and expenses on issues close to the heart, such as Islamic dinners, we will!
Opposition Leader Bill (Once accused of raping a woman) Shorten claimed over $51,000 in taxpayer expenses in the first half of 2016 which he has claimed was for his family to be by his side during the election campaign and thus, we paid for them to fly alongside him.. My work sure doesn’t pay for my wife to travel around the countryside if I have to travel.. These numbers and this excuse have emerged just days after the Shorten lead Labor Party called the government’s refusal to outright sack Sussan Ley “weak”.. Now we’re all aware that the Labor Party and the word ‘hypocrisy’ go together like like bacon and eggs, but really?
Senator Penny Wong took the “moral” high ground and stated that:
“Instead of doing the right thing and moving to remove Ms Ley from his frontbench, to sack her from Cabinet, we have a Prime Minister who, yet again, goes for the weak option”
Well since the Senator does not believe taking the “weak option”, maybe she should personally push for the Labor party to crack down on their own expenditure, after all, how is it feasible for the public to believe that during the same length campaign, visiting the same number of cities, that opposition leader Bill Shorten could rack up a bill 3 times higher than that of the Prime Minister? But we know Senator Wong won’t call for Shorten to resign, and neither will the media!
Speaking of Senators that the media refuses to be honest about, Greens Senator Richard Di Natale spent a whopping $56,536 in taxpayer dollars, purely for 6 months worth of travel.. Lets be honest Dick, no one in this country outside of the Melbourne CBD is even remotely interested in anything you have to say, stop spending our money and shut your mouth!
The Greens “Community Services” Minister.. [WAIT! Why do The Greens even get “shadow ministers” with portfolio’s? You do nothing positive for this country and carrying around a “portfolio” won’t change that!] Rachel Siewert claimed an insane $63,934 which was even more than Foreign Minister Julie Bishop claimed, and now The Greens are trying to claim the moral high ground and are insisting that the government instates a new “Anti-Corruption Watchdog”with the purpose of stopping politicians from rorting the system.. The Greens can claim to be abiding by the expense laws and that they personally utilised taxpayer funds for “moral” causes, but it just doesn’t pass the pub test that a Greens Minister, who no one has heard of, Rachel Siewert could legitimately claim enough to rank her 5th in overall expenditure! Especially when their excuse that she lives in Western Australia and the flights are more expensive doesn’t hold weight, as she still outspent her Western Australian colleagues:
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop ($51,212)
Finance Minister Mathias Cormann ($50,638)
Fellow Greens Senator Scott Ludlam ($46,692)
Assistant Health Minister Ken Wyatt ($46,353)
Overall, only 4 sitting MP’s spent more in taxpayer funded expenses over the same time period:
Justice Minister Michael Keenan ($83,808)
Social Services Minister Christian Porter ($77,469)
Employment Minister Michaelia Cash ($73,550)
Labor leader Bill Shorten ($71,182)
All of whom, are ministers holding portfolio’s or the Opposition Leader who’s expenditure I previously called into question.
Expense spending aside, the biggest travesty is that Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull spent in excess of $30,000 on an Islamic Dinner last year where he invited should be criminal SheikShady Al-Suleiman, who once called for his God to “destroy the enemies of Islam” and stated publicly that homosexuality is “an act of evil” and that “adulterers should be stoned to death”.
Yes! Sussan Ley wasted taxpayer funds, has a string of dirty dealings surfacing as every hour passes and should face the full consequences coming to her, such as her being forced to resign from the position of Health Minister. But it’s not simply enough for Sussan Ley to have the law brought down upon her, we should pull all MP’s under the same scrutiny, Opposition leaders and waste of space politicians should not be outspending cabinet ministers and getting a free pass from the mainstream media!
Imagine the mainstream media’s “outrage” if Senator Pauline Hanson and One Nation stablemate, Senator Malcolm Roberts had spent $56,536 and $63,934 respectively (the amount spent by Di Natale and Siewert) I think we all know what would be the headline story tomorrow in every mainstream weekend newspaper.
Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews is the prototypical cultural Marxist moron with an ounce of power!
The Victorian Premier has time and time again proven his disconnect with the average Victorian through his elitist virtue signaling that has only been appealing to the safe-space loving, white man hating, new gender pretending, Christian blaming, “moral high-ground” taking, green haired LOSERS that regularly rally behind issues such as:
This week, once again he has come under fire for his narcissistic behaviour that has lead him to ask the High Court to block a proposed inquiry into Labor MP’s misusing taxpayer-funded allowances during the 2014 Victorian state election. Because NOTHING says I stand against corruption like attempting to block a court case relating to his own corruption! see. Victorian premier Daniel Andrews asks High Court to block inquiry into MPs’ rorts.
“Dictator Dan” (as he is referred to by Victorian MP Bernie Finn) has virtue signalled on the public stage on the topic of same-sex marriage. After the plebiscite (that the Federal Labor and Greens MP’s blocked from being passed through parliament) failed to take place, which would have given the Australian people a say on the matter, he published a copy of a letter that he emailed to PM Malcolm Turnbull on Twitter, in an attempt to say “Look at me, look how progressive I am” to his supportersmoronic inner-city fanatics and has gone on to defy the ruling of the Federal government and stated:
“We have a proud history in this state of changing the law, and trying to be the progressive capital of our nation and that is not going to change … this plebiscite will hurt people. It will legitimise a hateful debate which will subject LGBTI Australians to publicly-funded slurs and denigration, further alienating a proud community who have fought so hard against prejudice for so long … In Victoria equality is not negotiable. On behalf of my state, I urge you to accept there is no need for a costly and divisive plebiscite and agree to produce a bipartisan Bill to amend the Marriage Act within the next 100 days … We will see bigotry and prejudice like never before!”
Showing his disconnect with the hard-working Australian silent-majority and his blatant contempt for the hierarchy of Australian government, he went on to once again defy PM Malcolm Turnbull and indicated that he would go forward with radical plans to unionize the Victorian volunteer Country Fire Authority, a plan which the volunteers and federal government opposed which would give the hostile state firefighters union control over the CFA. see. Vic Premier Daniel Andrews slams Malcolm Turnbull for politicising CFA dispute to further read about this issue.
Whether he is defending Islam, appeasing radical Marxist rioters, “mansplaining” to rabid feminazi’s, replacing reliable power sources with unreliable green dreams, propagating for legalized assisted suicide (see.Legal euthanasia nears as Victorian Labor and Liberal MPs unite) or denying the problem Victorian citizens are being faced through his celebrated influx of refugees (The violent Apex gang) see:
He has shown not only the people of Victoria, but the people of Australia that he is not fit for public office!
Daniel Andrews is doing nothing to further his state in the fields of safety or prosperity, and at the next Victorian state election, current polling shows that thankfully, the majority of Victorians are fed up with this Marxist and will not be gifting him another term in office!
The evidence that the once great Labor Party of Australia has been hijacked by the far-left is right there in that policy statement. When we see former Labor Party stalwarts come out and say that Australia should embrace Nuclear Power, the right needs to praise these courageous souls.
Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke told a crowd at a music festival in Queensland that:
Here we have a former Labor stalwart pushing for a common sense approach to Climate Change which will protect the people who they purport to represent and on the other hand we have a Labor Party that is willing to sell out its base.. To woe the Green vote!
One Nation must be licking their lips at the thought of Labor’s attitude towards it supporters.
