Victorian Liberal Senator Tsebin Tchen turned up in issue three of
Crikey back in 2000 when stories circulated that he found his
Parliament House office sofa comfier than digs in Canberra. In his last
days in the Senate, a curious email response in his name to a message
on IR reforms is doing the rounds. Senators don’t speak this way – even
dumped Senators, surely? All the valedictory speeches have been
terribly polite. Has his email account been hacked?

What a load of hogwash. If those diggers who sacrified their
lives to protect democracy could hear your snivelling they would be
spinning in their graves. Are you ashamed of being such a useless
pinheaded prick?
