Forced eviction from political Lala land

Former One Nation senator Rodney Culleton has threatened a High Court challenge to his disqualification from federal Parliament for being bankrupt.

Senate President Stephen Parry informed West Australia Governor Kerry Sanderson of a vacancy in the upper house on Wednesday, brought about by the Federal Court’s ruling on Mr Culleton’s business affairs.

He will be a great loss.

Not because the quality of government will be improved by his departure but because he was a lot of fun. An over-the-top ratbag. Rather like the rest of One Nation but rather more endearing than either Pauline Hanson or Martin Roberts.

Hanson and Roberts: Politically close.

 Rod Culleton may have been a clown but he was a well-meaning clown. He certainly lacked the vindictive stupidity of Roberts and a rampant xenophobia of Hanson.

Despite being bankrupt, he’s going to fight the decision of the High Court, as you would.
