Politicians think we are all stupid

I STRUGGLE to understand the thinking behind highly-intelligent and highly-paid politicians attempting to charge private trips to the taxpayer - and then hiding behind the "within guidelines" defence.

They know it's wrong, we know it's wrong, other pollies know it's wrong but so many continue to do it.

Clearly, they think the ordinary taxpayer is stupid and gullible.

Well, we are not, but we are totally fed up with the lies and rorts flowing from both state and federal parliamentarians.

Such behaviour says much about the (lack of) integrity, honesty and morality and so many of those we elect to represent us and tarnishes the name of good, honest pollies doing the right thing.

There is no room in our halls of power for the sheer arrogance behind such "errors of judgment". One strike and you're out should be the benchmark.
