Sam Dastyari

The level of public disgust over the (completely fair) perception that both the Coalition and ALP increasingly spend their energies doing the bidding of those who give them cash money is reaching peak nauseation in the post-Dastyari gloom. Both major parties have suddenly come over all moral-like, competing in their demands that somebody should do something about it.

That’s all been an unfocused mess, as you’d expect when politicians are making policy both unwillingly and in response to unfolding events rather than on the basis of something boring like actual evidence.
