This is the same Tony Abbott that caused Pauline Hanson to go to gaol on trumped up charges, opposed the "morning after" pill but denied it, supported the Godwin Grech and James Ashby shady dealings, and stabbed Malcolm Turnbull in the back for the leadership?

Absolutely to late. It was good to see that lying thieving bastard Thompson carted off by the cops. The controversy about the body search was a smokescreen. He should be thankful for as it is a sample of things to come when he goes to goal and the pretty boy becomes someones bitch. At the rate they are going they will finally get juliar. First female prime minister, first one to go to goal. They will need to build a special prison their will be so many of them, obeids etc. Bring on the election.

I am not saying Thompson is innocent, but having lived in here for so many years I do know how things work. Do anyone here really think that he is the only corrupt politician, or should I say, that any politician at all is not corrupt?.
Thompson being a Kiwi, must have upset one one of the 'bosses' and now he is to pay the price; we all know that in here, it only takes to upset or not to be liked by one of the original convicts for all the rest to turn against anyone from foreign origins, all this while they wa*k each other.
some of them commit serious crimes, and they only get a slap in the wrist, while any migrant that makes a small mistake is made to pay a high price.
