Because, frankly, some of you aren’t deserving of respect

johnboy 24 October 2013 1

The Canberra Times has the welcome news that the Legislative Assembly code of conduct has been watered down to account for the significant percentage of the citizenry who are best ignored:

A requirement for ACT politicians to treat citizens with courtesy and respect has been stripped from a new code of conduct for the ACT Legislative Assembly.

Labor and Liberal MLAs used their combined numbers to amend the updated code of conduct, which was proposed by Greens MLA Shane Rattenbury.

The Assembly also agreed to the appointment of a new Commissioner for Standards.

Commissioner for Standards would make for a nice business card. Flash that in a restaurant and you’d probably get a free meal…
