It seems the grateful taxpayer is going to fork out $30,000 for an official portrait of disgraced ex-Speaker Peter Slipper. Personally I think he should be subject to damnatio memoriae and be expunged from the list of Speakers. If he had any decency he would resign from Parliament and request that a portrait not be painted. But if a portrait is required, why not just use this?
