There is a very strong alternative candidate in Melbourne Ports, and corrupt Danby only won by 477 votes last time, so I guess he's just stuffing his face before the restaurant closes.

Why is anybody surprised this is where our money is wasted !!! Self centred politicians on both sides who think they are entitled? They hound people on benifits amd raise taxes while they milk the system for everything they can get !!!!

Danby has no achievements in parliament, just a back bench sloth. why do back bench sloths get ability to use Australian tax payer funds to travel anywhere outside of their electorate other than Canberra. Danby can't possibly have any business needs in QLD considering he does nothing for Melbourne Ports.

Stop blaming others for you're greed. The pollies love chasing people for money . Some guilty some not. Have have to face court or pay it back. These grubby politicians just blame others or stay silent hoping it will go away. No they should be made accountable and pay it back then get demoted or sacked for stealing. When is enough enough from politicians stealing our money.

This man supports an entity that drops white phosphorus bombs on 1.8 million trapped human beings in Gaza, and other war crimes. Why should someone missing a conscience like that even feel remotely guilty about stealing taxpayers money?

We need to cap all perks & start an independent audit of the parliment. If they get perks no corporate wages or golden handshakes. It’s one or the other, time Australians set politicians pays not politicians themselves

Not good but definitely LNP propaganda to distract from the very real crimes of Bishop, Joyce and the LNP. Their fraud and rorting outweigh this a million to one !!
