McGowan's bikie slur against Buswell

Posted by Matt Hayden on Wednesday, April 30, 2014,
There's no denying that politics is a blood sport and that anyone who wants to be treated with kid gloves should give the profession a wide berth. That said, there should be some standards.

For example, indulging in sledges that equate your political enemies with violent low life criminals is unbecoming.
