Knowing that Owen Glenn was in the country today and about to make a submission to the Privileges Committee, I found myself wondering what the labour were going to use as a distraction. I wonder no more, as trevor mallard has come up with the goods.
That politics in this country has sunk so low that the only way a government feels it can stay in power is by planting moles in the opposition's staff and having them steal, yes trevor steal, documents, and then brandishing them about on national television does not bode well for the future of my country.
Surely stealing such things is a criminal offence? Using a document for parliamentary advantage perhaps? Where then the police enquiry? Or has everyone grown used to the idea that labour party people are protected and immune from prosecution?
One can only hope, however, that the policy he's promising to release today has been written specifically for him and his mole, if you know what I mean. G
