Quite why we need an ACT shadow minister for Veteran’s Affairs is a little beyond me.
But Zed Seselja has informed us that have one we shall.
Apparently it is “In recognition of the sacrifice and service of our military personnel”.
Forget health care and pensions, surely there is no higher tribute than a shadow minister for a non-existent portfolio!
(The cynical might think it has something to do with trying to cash in on the annual wave of Anzac worship.)
The indefatigable Colonel Hanson is of course the man for the job, perhaps disappointed to discover that there is no Defence portfolio in ACT politics.
To show just how made keen he is on all things veteran the Libs have pushed out his bio again for public consumption.
