There’s been a lot of talk this week about the behaviour of parliamentarians. Today, we report on a series of incidents that put the whole Della Bosca/Neal Iguanagate unsavouriness into perspective. Emerging revelations about former Queensland Minister Merri Rose and the treatment of her staff trace a tale of deceit, serial dissembling and s-x scandal that implicate a former premier and eventually end in a chain of tragic consequence. Shouting at the staff while p-ssed has nothing on it.
