THESE politicians who use parliamentary privilege to name others are pretty cowardly.

Rob Pyne is a prime example concerning Paul Pisasale.

Bet he wouldn't open his big mouth about this out on the street.

This privilege needs to be abolished. This clown has now tainted Mr Pisasale without anything being proved.
