    Justice is slow but poetic. She and her friend deserve everything they get for what they did and what they took. They were well compensated by Murdoch so I hope they take all of that of them as well.

    Four questions:
    Was former Liberal National President bankrupted?
    Was former Labor National President bankrupted?
    Why have the two largest Australian political parties been presided over by such men?
    What is being done to prevent recurrences?

    Pardon me…
    Question 1:

    Was former Liberal National President John Elliott bankrupted?

    What a culture – funded by members?
    It will be interesting, though, to see if that ethical black hole, Reith, tries to save her, after he’s used and tossed her aside?

    God Reith has been employed by Fairfax now. Couldn’t they go out with some dignity?
