Threats made against pollies

Not very happy with the current direction of Australian politics, with threats being made against Defence Minister Stephen Smith and death threats being made against independent MP Andrew Wilkie. Even worse is Liberal MP Steve Ciobo, a member of the Joint Select Committee on Gambling Reform, who thinks it is "unfortunate" that Mr Wilkie put out a media release about it, but apparently doesn't have anything to say about the death threats themselves.

EDIT: I'm pleased to report I have more on Mr Ciobo's comments and he did say what I was hoping to hear: "At no time should either blackmailing or death threats be tolerated..." In my defence, I did look for a couple of sources of news, but none of them seemed to go beyond his "unfortunate" remark.
