I've written here many times about the labour thief, and ex-MP, Margaret Moran and her thieving ways. Now unlike most of our political thieves, of all parties, she was arrested and was due to stand trial for her crimes. A cozy prison cell was awaiting her and some semblance of justice was due.
However it seems this isn't going to happen.
She's got some pet shrink, paid for by the taxpayer so it seems her leeching of us is not over, to say she shouldn't face justice because it'll make her sad. The judge has accepted this ruse and she's got off with stealing 80 odd thousand from us. This vast amount a fraction of the full amount as she was let off the rest when she was arrested.
It's a farce.
Now I am sensitive to the issues of mental health and how they can reduce a person's guilt or ability to stand tril due to insanity. But this isn't one of those cases. Moran hasn't been committed to a mental institution. She hasn't tried to kill herself. She's just a bit sad about the prospect of being out in jail for her thieving ways. The fact that she gets a bit upset when people mention her crimes is natural. It's a reminder of what is awaiting her.
Most people facing jail for their crimes are not overjoyed by the prosect. It's natural.
This ludicrous judgement sets the precident which means that if you're unhappy about facing prison then the trial must be stopped and you found not guilty because you are unhappy by the prosect.
So Moran faces an expensive, taxpayer funded, trial in which it is impossible to fine or imprison her.
And so another labour thief escapes justice.
And people wonder why polticians are held in such low esteem!
