There’s something odd about Bronwyn Bishop and Sophie Mirabella’s wedding.
You most probably think that the odd thing is “why would anybody want to invite Bronwyn Bishop to their wedding?”
No, that’s not it.
Or you might think that it’s odd that anyone would want to attend Sophie Mirabella’s wedding anyway.
No, that’s not it either.
This is what I think is odd:
Tony Abbott (another person I wouldn’t invite) attended the 2006 wedding and charged the taxpayers for his attendance. In 2013 he paid that money back.
Other attendees from the Coalition who had charged the taxpayers for traveling to the wedding – George Brandis, Scott Morrison, Barnaby Joyce – have also paid the money back.
We are to believe that Bronwyn Bishop hasn’t.
So where is this odd?
Well, if in 2013 Tony Abbott paid the money back, as did the other three luminaries as noted above, why wasn’t Bronwyn told to as well?
Wasn’t she made aware that this could go pear-shaped?
Or maybe she was, but thought she was above all that.
