Three Coalition MPs caught out claiming endorsements they simply never received| (The Army stepped away from this man.)

In mid-2016, Hastie was abruptly severed from the apolitical Army Reserves for using unauthorised images of himself in military gear for his Federal election campaign material (see above).

In keeping with established Liberal tradition, of course, Hastie was entirely unrepentant, reportedly claiming that the ADF had “used a bit of policy to try and push me around”.

The people of Canning were clamouring to see him in his camos, Hastie affirmed:

“I had to decide whose authority I answered to. It was the people of Canning. As a Federal parliamentarian, I don’t take orders from the military.”

With that sort of desire to not take orders from his lawful military commanders, we can be sure the decision to hand Hastie his marching orders was not a difficult one to reach.
