    And it will be impossible to get rid of him unless the voters show him the door.

    When you've been expelled from the Katter Party, you've got to know you're only riding on three wheels.

    A petition to expel Anning from Parliament already has 100,000 signatures and climbing.

    Sadly it will amount to nothing as there's no grounds for him to be expelled.

    hopefully he'll crash and burn at the next election and the facist prick will fade into memory.

    I saw one of my friends post that on FB. Doubtful it will do anything. but as marc said, he will crash and burn at the next election. As will his party.

    A teenager smashed an egg onto the back of Anning's head, Anning tries to punch the teenager in response. Kid was arrested but charges dropped.

    I was right and wrong about expelling him from the senate.

    It used to be possible to expel some-one as S.49 gives the parliament the ability to set it's privileges etc but the rules were changed in 1987.

    As it was simply an act of parliament it could be changed again but they wouldn't be time as parliament has very few sitting days before the election is due (nice work scummo to avoid scrutiny).

    This is not how I usually recommend responding to politicians but I think this kid is my new hero. And if he'd been charged I'd have happily contributed to his defence.

    Smashing an egg into someone is still pathetic.

    My heart breaks for Christchurch there has been so much pain what with the earthquakes and now this horrific abomination of hate. I love New Zealand and was born there and it feels personal when bad things happen.

    The Waleed/Morrison interview was a trainwreck. ScuMo lost it several times. he looked soooo bad to me. And yes, he lied.

    I can’t wait for the comparisons to Waleed’s interview with Ardern on Sunday.

    Who Scummo? Lied noooooooooo he's a politician they don't lie /s

    I don't watch The Project but I did watch the interview and will probably watch the one on Sunday. I like JA but hope these people are not milking it for any other purpose like votes or public standing, aaaaaawww who am I kidding there's probably some of that going on.

    After everything that's happened in the last week, and even before that, who wouldn't wand a PM like her? She'd be a definite improvement over anyone here.

    True I wanted Australia to steal her as PM but NZ wasn't happy with the idea.

    Having the former Uruguayan President, Jose Mujica, might have been almost as good as Jacinda Ardern. He gave away 90% of his $12,000 salary to the poor, and drove around in a 1987 Volkswagen Beetle. Australian need politicians like these two.
