It's time that the people protested against this type of thing and made sure that this dishonorable person was ejected from his position, in fact, ejected from any public office. How can we trust anyone who had lied by omission? This is not a harmless thing, he has broken the rules deliberately, when he thought he could get away with it.
Not good enough. I agree with Malcolm Turnbull.
The Opposition Leader, Malcolm Turnbull, said last night that "a responsible prime minister" would immediately sack Mr Fitzgibbon.Guess Fitzgibbon just forgot those trips to China, makes one ponder what else he's forgotten.
"Kevin Rudd must stop making excuses for this disgracefully incompetent minister," he said.
Other ALP ministers/shadow ministers (before November 2007), were in receipt of similar, er, support, and I believe they have all done the right thing. (If they haven't they, too, should be gone.)
More on AM today, and yesterday.
