Press Gallery party aftermath

The Parliamentary Press Gallery had its end of year party last night. Basically it was a trough-fest for corporate lobbyists…with them out numbering journalists by a substantial amount.

This was the scene that confronted staff and MPs arriving this morning.

Various news outlets have gone into bat for the Parliamentary cleaners to be paid more, calling MPs and staff messy.

Meanwhile, some media have also criticised smokers for lighting up in the Parliamentary precinct.

Seems the same standards don’t apply to the Press Gallery.

Sanctimonious hypocrites.
