I agree. He should be locked up for 6 months at the very least. Bloody liberal spiv!

And the only reason he got that meagre punishment is because the Libs lost. If they had won (even if his wife had lost her seat in the process) no doubt it would have been excused as "youthful hijinx." Or am I extrapolating to think the judiciary here is as corrupt and susceptible to politics as in the U.S.?
