Stephen Mayne is right:
In any other field of human activity, donations like these to political parties would be called out for what they are:- attempted bribery.But, but, but, it's only to buy them an audience, an ear.
Personally, don't understand the attraction to pokies. No issue spending $50 on a slab, $50 in a one armed bandit, I'd be mortified.I'm happy to have a counter meal at one of those places but every time you walk past the pokies room you can smell the stench of desperation and misery. I always think "I've won again just by not playing".
On the surface of it but then again Trump used to call press conferences and do the same thing, just make a statement about how much he hated the media and then walk out without taking questions. And let's face it, a Qatar media group combining with the communists at the ABC - it plays right into the traditional Trump line of 'don't believe anything you see in the mainstream media'.Look at ONP and the revelation on tonight's ABC program that they were soliciting donations from NRA.Pauline Hanson has at least denied soliciting donations from the NRMA.
She should have considered purchasing insurance from them, because that press conference looked a lot like a car crash.
