For once, social media is asking a good question: why are Australian taxpayers funding a three-month education mission to New York for two Federal MPs – who will then immediately quit public life?
Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi was on secondment to the UN for three months in 2016 - but he continues to work in the Senate.
Liberal NSW MP Ann Sudmalis and Labor’s Jenny Macklin are the latest federal politicians to enjoy 12-week parliamentary observer postings to the UN General Assembly.
Both women will then retire at the next election.
Senator Bernardi has told Andrew Bolt on Sky News while he has many problems with the UN's distance from reality and biased demands some nations make of Western nations via the UN, some good work does occur there.
