There's been something fishy about this woman from the start.

Is the case about the circumstances of her election before the court?

No, I don't think that the two are related.  The article that you have linked concerns the perception that Gladys Liu could be seen as enabling Chinese state interference into the Australian political system.  There was an excellent Four Corners episode on this topic more generally a few months ago.  It was aired prior to the Federal Election and does not mention Gladys Liu (prior to her being elected).

The impropriety of Gladys Liu's election campaign material is currently before the High Court.

I know they are not related, but it relates to her overall fishiness.

The Chinese influence in our politics reminds me of the thing I read about the Confucius Institute in schools.

...i mean i would at least expect she’d get the same treatment as Sam Dastyari

hmmmm, thats interesting. I need to know more though, did they appoint her without her knowledge like she seems to be implying?  Doesnt seem like it, but Id like to know. And how long was she a member?

What do the news corp papers have to say about it?  what a conundrum, they love the Liberals, but hate anyone foreign, whatever shall they do...

Why did people vote for her given that there was a lot of information availble before the election about her.? Too late to complain now.

She is very visible in the local community and has a lot of local support.  And a decent amount of support from other chinese Australians too.  Plus, its just generally a liberal voting area, seems to be swinging more and more to the right.

Why did people vote for Morrison, Dutton, BJ and a myriad of others, given the information available about them?

yes....she didn’t exactly run a fair campaign.

anyway...the Speaker is now apparently ruling any question from the Opposition about her as “out of order” so it doesn’t look like we’ll get to the bottom of it. the LNP are circling the wagons....

Interesting to hear Morrison's distinction between her and Dastyari -

1 - no money changed hands...... (that we know of, yet) and,
2 - she is newer to parliament and more junior than Dastiari was.  

Great excuses.  No double standards, of course.

I really need to bury my head in the sand and not read about this...it's bad for my blood pressure 😡.

One wonders if Mr Morrison has ever read our constitution? Specifically, this bit:

44. Any person who -

(i.) Is under any acknowledgement of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign power, or is a subject or a citizen or entitled to the rights or privileges of a subject or citizen of a foreign power..........
shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a member of the House of Representatives.



Jesus H Christ I'm sick of what is happening to this country. And Morrison...I am afraid his rat-cunning may exceed even that of the old master himself, John Howard.

Shows how useless the LNP candidate selection is - she should have never even made it to preselection.

Given the ASIO stuff now, gobsmacked that the party machine didn't step in earlier.

And the difference between Sam and Gladys - one seat majority.

I think people and media kind of forget the one seat majority this excuse of a government has - Alex Taylor, Gladys Liu, Barnaby, Stuart Roberts etc - they will just keep battling onwards.

The ICAC bill will be interesting when it arrives and how the LNP handle it.

ETA - Angus Taylor, my bad.

The issue of Chinese government influence/interference in our politics is well overdue to blow up in the public awareness.

I have a lot of time for Rex Patrick, the guy who attempted to bring some sanity to our plans to build ludicrously overpriced submarines in Adelaide. Here he is recently, trying to start a Senate inquiry into our relationship with China...and his proposal being voted down by both Libs and Labs.
