Well Barnz, interesting enough, I was no fan of Bill Shorten until I actually met him and he told me about working to bring NDIS to reality. He spoke to me with real conviction about how we needed to do lots more for disabled people and he has got it done.
And he has united the Parliamentary Labor Party like no other Leader in all my years as a Members. Bill is definitely not perfect and at times his media performances can be wooden, but Fairfox and NewsCorp do not give him ( or in fact most Political Leaders) a fair go.
So if my only sin is supporting Bill, then I am doing OK.
