Joel’s been a naughty boy.

This latest stoush regarding our defence minister receiving goodies from a person with alot of contacts in Beijing it quite interesting.

A real cynic/conspiracy theorist would say that as Kev 24/7 has a real hard on for the PRC and because of Mr Fitzgibbons links with  this Helen Lui that how he got a front bench job.

I must say that the good Senator looks to be more of a useful idiot, and wonder that if he hadn’t screwed up the matter of the SAS wages issue whether the Defence  dept would have actually investigated it’s own minister. After all this is more of an ASIO issue. 

So are we seeing a return to the 70’s where we have federal organisations who do not trust their politcal masters and so keep tabs on them?

Trouble is the Ruddsters got bigger fish to fry and so can’t really let a ministerial sacking cloud his trip to the USA. It could give the Libs a lot of political ammo

    It’s going to be hard for him to get out of this one. Supposedly he was being investigated prior to the pay screwup.

    I gotta say, even with these problems he is still a better defense minister than Brenden Nelson!

    Nowadays mate they almost have top be caught in flagrante for anything to happen and there are few on any side of politics who’d do the decent thing (needless to say none of those ever make ministerial level)
