    LOL
    Well the message is being sent loud and clear on twitter all over the world ATM so that is some consolation and Simon Chapman in his tweets is unhappy about it

    And thanks Fatman for embedding it

    I can't agree more FM. On the good side though, it is now on record, both Hansard and video. If anyone might benefit from Senator Leyonhlelm's speach, we have a link ;-)

    I think there might be some fallout from this...

    My understanding is {someone} has written another (unpublished) supplementary to counter what the Brits said ...

    No, chapman is on the same crazy train as (mmm how to phrase it without annoying FM) a certain couple of ex pro-vape members.
    People that follow that school of crazy, dont learn.

    They just blame everyone else, try and takeout as many others as possible while being dragged to the door. then off to the next cause full of suckers to inflate their ego.

    Its not that I have a beef with some of David Leyonhjelm's platforms etc , everyone is entitled to their views and those who they represent, its not even the despicable practices by so called experts outlined by him in this speech ....

    My biggest beef with this is .... LOOK at all the empty seats in the chamber on the long shots , notice that during the whole video there is not even a cough or shuffling of papers by another MP ... So ALL the other bloodsucking "elected representatives" weren't even there to HEAR what he actually said ... instead they will rely on a staffer to read thru Hansard and bring it to their attention because THEY chose not to do the job WE elected them for . Because as a member of the LDP it doesnt really matter to them what he says .... Surely it is not too much to ask that each and every elected representative actually LISTEN to what the people outside of their electorate, party, or campaign donors want to be heard .... It kinda disgusts me a little because ok the Senator was speaking on our behalf this time, but no-one heard him except the speaker and the secretary by the looks of it ... and I wonder how many OTHER concerns meet this same fate ... it is just reinforcing to me that unless a concern meets an agenda or a payday for either major party then no-one really gives a toss... no wonder we have the government we do ...

    Now I do understand this is all part of the process and there is no requirement for anyone to actually be there apart from the person giving the speech for it to be put on the record , but dammit we pay for them, we expect them to at least hear what other people have to say so that they can make the best decisions FOR the people they represent... otherwise everything apart from what people WANT to listen to , is reduced to words on a page , hoping someone will hear them .
    Fatman , Leyenjholm was speakink at 8.30 pm everyone had probably left

    Tricky one - its so great he spoke up and exposed Chappers in the senate BUT and its one hell of a but for me - I cannot and will not support anything that comes from that despicable low life senators mouth - not even for our vaping rights.
    I wont be sharing his youtube post anywhere - there are times when one has to weigh up and consider how we give support to Pollies and if we are willing to sell out on fundamental personal beliefs and for me in this case its big NO.
    Really wish some "credible" pollies would step up and support us.

    Wonder how many people have no idea about who Guy Fawkes is

    Just think - if he had been successful, and had bumped off King James I, tobacco may never have been taxed the way it is
