Not really sure what's going on out there, but I guess politicians are just there doing what they are best at. At the end, does Coalition benefit from it? Maybe. What about Labor? Maybe not. Australians? I don't think so. If we want to see fights, we vote them (off) the reality shows. Not into the parliament.
However, somehow I don't seem to get that shocked by all these backlashing business. I guess I am sort of immune to it -- from getting used to much more exciting warfare happening everyday on the stage of Taiwan politics.
