Putting the slipper in.


The Labor Party will be thankful this morning for the publicity the News Limited tabloids have given to the problems the new House of Representatives Deputy Speaker Peter Slipper has had with reconciling his travel expenses claims. Rightly or wrongly the link between the Murdoch papers and the Liberal Party points the finger at revenge seeking Liberals as the source of the story.
If that makes Mr Slipper, who angered his Liberal Party colleagues by accepting the Deputy Speaker’s position, a little less charitable towards those colleagues it can only be helpful to a government that needs all the support in Parliament that it can get.
