Think Anew, Act Anew

observations and opinion

The Senate Scandal in a Nutshell

(1) several Senators made dubious expense claims but

(2) they were told the expenses were within the rules then

(3) word got out and the govt worried about public opinion so

(4) the govt decided to throw the Senators overboard but

(5) at least one, Duffy, fought back so

(6) the govt offered to pay his expenses and legal fees if Duffy would play along

(7) and he did till the govt got more nervous and cooked up this kangaroo court expulsion scheme at which point

(8) the 3 Senators no longer had a reason to tow the line.

    (9) for “the govt”, read “the PM”
