Politicians make it difficult for people to protest yet they are prepared to fly their own flag on a whim.
The Greens walked off the job in the Senate rather than listening to Pauline Hanson's first speech in this parliament. I generally don't agree with Hanson's delivery. Only a few of her messages resonate with me. She was elected to the Senate and her position also got others in her team a lot of support. I think much of this was a protest against the major parties Greens included. By turning their backs and walking out the Greens are thumbing their nose at the voters who supported Hanson. I wonder how politically astute that is.
