In The Courier this week
“OUT OF TOUCH LIARS” - Family First Senator Bob Day gets down to business in his office at his Houghton home.
New Senator gives politicians a blast
Federal politicians are liars who are out of touch with the real world and do not have answers to the nation’s problems, according to the State’s newest Senator.
Family First’s new Upper House voice Bob Day launched the attack on his Parliamentary colleagues in a wide-ranging interview with The Courier on Friday.
The long-time Houghton resident believes he and five other crossbench Senators who took up their roles this month will bring “commonsense” to Canberra.
And he has his own agenda – starting with an overhaul of the industrial relations system to bring more people off the dole and into the workforce.
