So there was Sam Dastyari, this bloke and Comrade Dan signing on to Bib and Braces, is this network of Labor politicians pushing Communist Party agendas going to be bigger than the Cambridge 5?

Remind me, what party did Andrew Robb belong to when he leased Darwin port to the Chinese for 99 years?

Unless it's Gladys Liu. Can't afford to lose one of your own MPs when you only have a one seat majority, eh Morrison?

It was the CLP that leased the port. Poor choice of tenant but did bring in a lot of cash we otherwise didn’t have for urgently needed upgrade works. Might also encourage the yanks to build us a new port just up the coast.

Of course, Labor would have just borrowed the money for the works. They’ve managed to turn a $1 billion and reducing deficit into an $8 billion And growing deficit in four short years.

Not to mention an agreement Labor Chief Minister Gunner signed in Shanghai recently that he refused to talk about until pressed in Parliament. Then he claimed it was a sister city agreement. Pure bullshit as no mayor has any knowledge of it and Gunner does not directly control any towns or cities. I expect we’ll wake up one morning to find we’ve joined Victoria on the belted road.

Unless you know something we don't, Robb was probably as surprised as Morrison when he found out the deal had been done, the federal government knew nothing about the deal. Local Labor party Territory government was responsible.

"The Canberra leader of the Comancheros bikie gang has died in a fight at a bar in the city's CBD overnight."
