Don't Sack Bidgood


James Bidgood is a naughty man who should be thrown out of parliament according to the Opposition.
Mr Bidgood took a photograph of a man who had doused himself in petrol and then threatened to set himself alight. He offered to sell the said photo to a newspaper in exchange for a $1000 donation to charity. There are howls from the corridors of Parliament House for Kevin Rudd to reprimand the errant MP or sack him.
Marat Aminov's parents have been on a bridging visa for the last 10 years here in Australia and in desperation over the plight of his aging parents, Aminov thought this was the best plan to draw attention to the agonising situation his parents face.
There are calls for an inquiry and a code of conduct to be written up for all members. While one understands the terrible and anxious time it must be for the parents, if they have been waiting for ten years for the visa rigmarole to be sorted, who was in power for most of those last years? Not the current government but the now whining opposition. As for Bidgood's photograph, well if it wasn't him then any other member of the public could of done so. Here we have a man who went to extreme measures to draw attention to his parents situation but the Oppositon's criticism and harping on about it is all hot air. Do you really care about a member of parliament taking a photo or a lunatic attempting to set him self alight in a public gallery, afterall Aminov ultimately got the attention he was originally seeking.

No, it doesn't seem like a sacking offence.

It is terible though, when people feel drawn to such desparate measure in their search for justice,
