A NSW broker has been issued a five-year suspension from the Liberal Party following a 10-second media interview

    Two points:-
    - Well done John (lobbyists in any form are a danger to democracy because money & power is the corrupting influence)
    - Secondly can John himself extend the ban to 10 years? (lol)

    This should come as no real surprise -its what one should expect under the new right wing Abbott regime.
    Hide the ministers. Gag the ministers.

    Under Abbott the Liberal Party will not be liberal at all, Facist is more descriptive. We are supposed to have free speach in a free country. Ruddick should request intervention by the Discrimination Commission.

    Lobbyists including state president and liberal Party NSW state director must have something to hide if they went to this extreme,

    "These in-house lobbyists include the state (Liberal Party) president, who lobbies for online gambling"


    THIS IS VERY CONCERNING. Look very carefully at the Liberal party all-Australians

    I think Hitler tried that Sidbroker..
    (remember what happened next?)

    Banning lobbyists from government is probably smarter. Just sayin

    You've got my vote John - let's "turn on the search-light and see who's hiding in the corners" ....

    Well what about Martin Ferguson's appointment,. . . no conflict of interest there,. . in a pigs bum !!!

    Neeham obviously sees John Ruddick as a serious rival to the NSW Liberal presidency. Since when cant Ruddick exercise his right to free speech? If Neeham's crude and ill considered ban proceeds, online gambling will flourish along with sports betting and the only winners will be the bookies and gambling sites.

    Gambling lobby runs NSW Liberal Party and thanks to Barry O'Farrells brown nosing to the reptiles progeny Darling Harbour has been turned into feeder system for parasite Casino. This is the end of Barry O'Farrell. Good work John.

    Looks like the Faceless Men of the Liberal Party are at work.
