Two months before being reappointed to the Senate, Fabian Manning seems to have commended himself on his willingness to resign.
Just before the election, Manning compared a Senate workday to that of an MP, implying it was less work. “I had a choice. I could have stayed in the Senate and gone on with a lifestyle that wouldn’t necessarily have me up every day working on behalf of the people. I chose not to,” said Manning, when he announced he was leaving the Senate on March 28.
