Quote from: SueC on April 14, 2020, 14:29:09If we excuse that kind of stuff, we lower our expectations, and people often happily sink to those low expectations. On the other hand, if we have high expectations of what people's behaviour is going to be, people often rise to those (or disappear entirely, to find murkier waters to wallow in). This then allows for a nice, warm, interactive environment where people can talk openly and feel supported and respected - rare as hen's teeth on the Internet, which is yet another reason it's worth doing.
QuotePauline Hanson is eating fish and chips with right-wing donors on the public dime. But a shocking string of revelations this week reveal she's not alone in her blatant misuse of public money.💸 Senator Eric Abetz sent us the bill to attend a gala dinner to celebrate the mining industry.💸 Deputy PM Michael McCormack billed taxpayers $4300 an hour for his RAAF flight to the Melbourne Cup. 💸 Three Cabinet Ministers flew to Sydney on the public dollar to wine and dine with mining and banking donors.💸 Shadow Minister Chris Bowen billed taxpayers to be the guest of honour at a Labor fundraiser.It's scandal after scandal - but these politicians aren't even breaking a sweat. Because without a federal corruption watchdog they know they won't face consequences.At a time when people across the country are struggling financially, losing their jobs and pulling money out of their superannuation just to survive - this week's spotlight on politicians reckless spending shows they need to be held accountable for their misconduct.
