This is Tim Soutphommasane's last regular column....and bad news
He starts tomorrow as Race Discrimination Commissioner in the Australian Human Rights CommissionWhen Labor goes down on September 7 all the usual suspects will be generating excuses and explanations -- sexism, Murdoch, etc., -- which will give them something to do and, ideally, keep them too busy to do any further damage to the country.
But what to do with Tim the Race Hustler and many others, whose mates have buried them away in various gigs where they will continue to suck on the public teat while white-anting the Abbott government's efforts to repair six years of damage?
One solution: dismantle the sinecures from the bottom up. Cut their funds, throw the inbred leftist luvvies into the street and tell them to get real jobs. You know, the sort where they pay tax rather than suck up others' contributions to the alleged public good.
