Empty gestures on blocking supply

The ABC has a story on plans by the Liberals to vote against the budget for the first time in the inglorious history of the ACT Assembly.

Our Brave Leader is predictably indignant.

Of more interest is that it shows a ruthless mongrel streak in Bill Stefaniak. To hell with principal there’s a media opportunity and some rank populism to be had here!

Ah, the ACT assembly, where both sides believe in empty gestures. Yay!

Of course Stanhope would never, ever think of trying to block suppy if he was in Opposition.

Maybe if he and a few others in the ACT Legislative Assembly had been a tad more responsible over the past few years we wouldn’t be in the cart now.
