Senator Steve Fielding is becoming predictably more frenetic as his moment of truth approaches. The sole Family First Party representative is in the Senate because of a stupid Labor Party preference allocation that will not be repeated. And unless something quite extraordinary happens again, Senator Fielding will return to obscurity on 30 June next year.
In the meantime the man is making a desperate attempt to get his name in the media with yesterday’s claim that women of a certain character would rort the planned paid parental leave bill with late term abortions being but the latest example. He will not be missed.
