Look, I am going to stick my neck right out. If there is anything even remotely improper in the career of Attorney General Bob Debus, I will be very, very surprised. I would even bet on it.
So what to make of the latest travesty in the NSW Parliament? Peter Debnam (right), who is only marginally less memorable than the Premier, is trying to make us remember him. Well, I will remember him, and I will remember not to vote for someone who uses the tactics he used today. Nor am I going to vote for the current government which is falling apart in so many ways, quite apart from the recent sensations. Green or Independent for me, and in our electorate both options are available.
I guess all NSW voters saw today’s dubious achievement. I hope they were as unimpressed as I was.
The Daily Telegraph this morning has chosen to scream previously discredited scuttlebutt all over its front page. Anyone who followed the saga of that particularly unreliable witness will give little credit to it. If I were Peter Debnam I would be getting very nervous about what interested parties might dig up on Liberal Party members and associates, if they cared to dig. Sleaze unfortunately is no respecter of ideological boundaries.
