Craig Thomson, Sigh
Everyone else has been blabbering on about Craig Thomson for weeks. No need for me to do so.
But just a couple of quick points.
His speech in parliament showed only that Craig Thomson, whom we all believed to be a thieving lecherous slimeball, is actually a vindictive thieving lecherous slimeball. It did nothing for him or for the Labor Party. Except, as some people have already pointed out, the Labor Party can now fairly claim to have someone qualified to organise a cock-up in a brothel.
And as for feeling sorry for him – no. He is reaping the consequences of his own actions.
Craig Thomson is under extraordinary pressure. It must be very uncomfortable. But he can get out of it any time he wants. All he needs to do is tell the truth, and then resign.
