WHY have the people of Charlton (namely Western Lake Macquarie) been abandoned by former minister Greg Combet, just because of a tiff within the Labor Party?
The latest chapter in the saga of ‘‘party politics’’ showed that it is indeed possible for these adults to act even more like children outside of Parliament, than they do inside question time.
It also helps turn people even more away from taking an active interest in the running of Australia.
Recently Greg Combet was joking about ‘‘retiring’’, to a group of ‘‘senior citizens’’; I say ‘‘Let’s help Greg Retire’’, he does have a lovely mansion in Newcastle to retire to, and a massive government pension so he probably won’t mind that much.
