Politics: Family First preferencing Hanson in Senate



*tries so hard to stifle a comment he ends up making injured animal noises and gives up* The story is not that Family First is giving Pauline Hanson a leg up. That's no surprise to me. What is a surprise is Andrew Bartlett's about-face. I know I should be pleased that he's seen the light and is denouncing FF for what they are, even though the real reason he's upset is because he thinks it hurts his own re-election chances, but I can't help thinking back to his expression of injured innocence after the last election defending his decision to swap preferences with FF, claiming he was trying to keep the Senate independent.

I'm told it's easy to get in if you're an experienced tradesperson. Apparently, they're in short supply after our current government spent ten years dismantling and devaluing the apprenticeship system. Imagine that...
