Quick to condemn Palmer after the fact but not during the rant

By 20 August 2014 18

I found Clive Palmer's outburst on Q&A on Monday night pretty awful and something we shouldn't see from a Member of Parliament. I do however wonder why Tony Jones or Penny Wong didn't step in to disagree? I find it a very 'Australian' thing to do. To stand by and smile while someone spews ...
