I am so sick of the political bullshit. There is so much political bullshit flying around that it’s surprising that they continue to get away with it. The latest political bullshit started when Bronwyn Bishop spent $5000 on a helicopter ride from Melbourne to Geelong. For this she was crucified by the media as well as other political bullshit artists like Labor’s Tony Burke who keeps harassing the Government trying to force Bronwyn Bishop out of the Speakers Chair.
What amazes me is that Tony Burke is so full of political bullshit it’s not funny. This article shows how Tony Burke has spent close to $2.2 million in travel costs including charter planes and flying on VIP Jets! In total Tony Burke one of the great Political Bullshit artists has spent over $4.6 million of tax payers hard earned money since 2008! And he has the gall to crucify Bronwyn Bishop. Don’t get me wrong, what Bishop did was wrong but in my opinion What Burke did was worse.
More of Tony Burke’s political bullshit was revealed when we find out about his Uluru $12707.65 trip, of which $8656.48 was used to fly his family over. WTF are we paying for his family to fly with him to Uluru? And why the hell did he have to fly them business class? Are they better than the rest of us who have to travel economy? That should have come out of his own pocket. He certainly shouldn’t have claimed the travel expense to go to a Robby Williams Concert!
What makes this political bullshit so unbelievable is that all political parties try to distance themselves from all the uproar. Why? Because they’re all scared that anything else would cost them all the use of their bullshit travel allowance. Take note that they all say these “travel claims were within the rules.” Well, maybe they should change the rules so they stop ripping off the Aussie public. You can read more of this as well as other political bullshit in 10 most outrageous expenses!
Would you like to hear some more political Bullshit? How about Jay Weatherill’s plan to abolish the $13,500 travel base allowance! Sounds like a great plan until you find out that the pollies are going to get a pay rise to compensate for it. Is that political bullshit or what?
Then we have Greens Senator Sarah Hanson Young racking up close to a million bucks in travel expenses since $2008! The bulk of her trips seem to be to access the state of refugees all over the world. Ammunition that she need to attack the Government into doing more to alleviate the crisis. This is the same Sarah Hanson Young that said ‘”tragedies happen, accidents happen” after an asylum seeker boat sank between Australia and Indonesia, has used taxpayer money to help fund a trip to rescue illegal arrivals off Italy‘.
You can almost see the smiles on the politicians faces every time they use tax payers money to fund their personal trips whilst sticking to their ridiculous “within the rules” mantra!
What really pisses me off is there seems to be one rule for the Politicians and another one for the rest of us! This has to stop. Stay tuned for a future post where I tackle their ridiculous pension rorts!
If you agree with this post share it with all your friends. Maybe if enough people get behind it some of this political bullshit will come to an end. We just don’t have the money to let this go on whilst the rest of Australia suffers.
The famous John F Kennedy once said, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” Wouldn’t it be great if our politicians lived by that rule instead of the one where they try to leach as much from our country as is politically possible.
