Kerry Bartlett, the Liberal member for Macquarie, appears to have decided he doesn’t have to represent some of his voters. Have a dekko at this letter from The Blue Mountains Gazette last week:

So you have to send a special request to get him to do the job he collects a fat pay cheque to do already? Complete an application form and then “Mr Bartlett will decide whether you are entitled to an interview.” Is he really besieged in his mountain fastness by hostile forces?

If wanting to talk to your alleged representative is seditious, then we’re Bakuninites, Bartlett buddy!
