Michael Danby Labor thief
Jan 14th, 2018 at 11:38am
 
What filth.

Federal Labor MP Michael Danby has refused to explain how and why he used Commonwealth limousines on personal holidays to Queensland that he later claimed were charged to taxpayers because of administrative error.

The Melbourne Ports MP charged taxpayers about $500 for COMCARs to and from the airport on three trips to the Gold Coast or Cairns for which he had no official parliamentary business. The trips took place in 2010, 2012 and 2015.

Always said it crosses party lines... age of entitlement.... should be funded in every facet of their life and lifestyle as they choose... and treated like royalty.

Miserable bunch of parasites.

Danby should immediately repay any dubious claims and be more diligent in future. It's a disgrace that social security recipients are being hounded for every dollar the government can extort out of them with false debts while the parliamentarians who make these laws can get away with dubious expense claims.

So sick of partisan bs on things like this. When a Labor mp does it the lefties stay silent and righties scream blue murder, and vice versa when the opposite happens. I don't care which side does it, behabiour like this is appalling and disgusting and Danby should be sacked. Not good enough to pay it back. When amy one else does this, they don't get to just pay it back. They are rightly sacked, or prosecuted. Why should it be any different politicians?

Why just pay it back though? That is no punishment, and it wasn't about being diligent. He had no business there he was just taking the taxpayers for a ride. Same as what Sussan Ley did.

Being in a payback ratio of 100:1 for any errors of any kind.  No sanctions,  no grief, just pay back $100 for every  $1 claimed in error.

Danby is an Opposition backbencher. He has no portfolios that he can resign from.

If they stuff up their claims, they should be transferred to the Centrelink system for any future expense claims. That means they can be pursued for decades for any debts.

Oh no, my analogy to Ley wasn't that he should resign like her, I was just saying that she did it too.

But don't you think that they all deserve far higher consequences than merely paying back the money? If a robber is caught stealing something should just be able to pay it back, and then nothing else happen?
