When the Liberals Brendan Smyth was was blathering in the Canberra Times this morning “new laws, agreed in principal by the Assembly” I looked to see if a coherent statement had been issued by his party and there is no such things.
Laws are not “agreed in principal”. Bills are introduced, and Acts are passed.
But Brendan’s efforts have not gone un-noticed by ACT Labor which is not at all happy with what’s been said about their relationship with the poker machine fuelled Labor Clubs.
In a highly defamatory attack on the Labor Party this morning, Liberal Brendan Smyth has incorrectly accused the party of breaching a law which he proposed last year but which doesn’t actually exist.
Mr Smyth has been a long-time politically-biased critic of the ACT’s community club system and in particular the support the Canberra Labor Club has provided ACT Labor and many community groups over the past 30 years.
At great length they then go on to explain the saintly nature of their gaming dens.
