David Leyonhjelm supported Adani in Parliament after investing in Abbot Point coal port
A crucial crossbench senator repeatedly voted in support of Adani in Parliament while owning a corporate bond issued by the group's Abbot Point coal terminal.
And there are no laws or rules governing how ordinary MPs should behave when faced with a potential conflict of interest.
A campaign for a code of conduct that could spell out whether MPs should abstain on voting where they have a personal interest has stretched into its fifth decade.
- Senator David Leyonhjelm has invested in the Adani Abbot Point terminal corporate bond
- He has voted in motions concerning Adani's Carmichael coal mine in Parliament
- Unlike other elected representatives, federal MPs do not have a code of conduct despite calls for one stretching back to the 1970s
Is there no end to political immorality ?
It seems that politicians have no moral compas and are just unable to work out what is right and what is wrong.
I am sure he will eventually trot out the old "I haven't broken any rules" excuse while continuing to vote to ensure the "rules" remain full of holes to allow his self serving dishonest behaviour to continue.
