Which MPs would pass the dope test?

‘The Christian Democrat leader, Fred Nile, wants random drug testing for all NSW MPs.

He will be first to volunteer, and wants the Greens MP Lee Rhiannon to be second.

Unaccountably, in 2004 Mr Nile voted for an amendment watering down Rhiannon’s motion to breath-test MPs for alcohol while in Parliament.

Yesterday Mr Nile was tough on drugs in Macquarie Street: “The voting public deserve to know whether the people they elect are capable of making rational decisions and are prepared to devote themselves to the job. There is no room for illegal drug taking in a House of Parliament.”‘
