OMG! I give Fielding two brownie points in one day!

Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-02-11


I’m antithetical to almost everything in the subtext of "Family First" Senator Fielding’s platform, his power base, the way he works behind closed doors, etc, etc.

But I do have to give him a couple of big ticks today:

Even the Greens’ dissenting report was quite good… better than their usual set of platitudes with little analysis.

Still, I wish the Dems were still in parliament… their forensic skills are sorely missed.

The only brownie point to Rudd for the majority view is that while it was self-congratulatory and somewhat selective in it’s quoting from the submissions it did quote (especially selective with Saul Eslake’s submission, which was quite scathing as I reported yesterday), at least it wasn’t as idiotic as the section from the Coalition.
