It's a pity Richard Court cut & run. He would have been Premier again after the 2005 State Election. But for some of them, $100,000 is a small price to pay to see the back of them as soon as possible. At least MP's under the new superannuation arrangements don't get paid a redundancy package in the form of a lifetime pension anymore.
