It’s almost my weekend holiday home, and I like nothing more than supporting local groups, sporting or otherwise, by purchasing a cold drink and a sanga (with or without onions).
It’s great to see young and the not so young working to help their group.
It would almost be UnAustralian not to buy a sausage sanga at Bunnings.
But, secondly, if you look at the list of sporting groups that were awarded grants under this genius scheme, as well as cricket, footy and netball club — there are shooting clubs, yacht clubs and golf clubs, including the Royal Adelaide Golf Club.
Ask yourself when was the last time you saw yachties manning the barbecue at Bunnings?
How many times has Royal Adelaide Golf Club applied to their local Bunnings to operate the sausage sizzle?
I’ve got no problem with shooting clubs.
I was a member of various pistol clubs for nearly 20 years.
But it does sound fishy when one gun club put in an application for a grant, gave free membership to Senator McKenzie, then surprise, surprise — got their grant.
And that folks is what she got into trouble for.
I always believed heads would roll over this scandal and I now have an answer to my question.
While sportsmen are able to mix sport with politics, politicians seem completely incapable of mixing politics with sport.
And remember, there’s no such thing as too much sport!
