The mark of a man
Qld Speaker Peter Wellington takes a novel approach to a confession by ALP MP Billy Gordon that he had a criminal record, was tardy in paying maintenance to his ex wife and, on occasions, he had abused her. It has also become apparent that the ALP knew this some time back yet still run him as a candidate. Peter Wellington blames the victim and anyone else involved in bringing the matter to the attention of the public. There’s the mark of the man right there. No balance, no ethics. Meanwhile, another Qld ALP MP is under the spotlight for threatening language and refusal to pay a real estate commission. Rick Williams mentioned his brother at the meeting who was a NSW hit man with some interpreting the statement as a threat, as you would. There you have it, The Palaszczuk government’s first week in power.
