Bastards

CITY of Adelaide Minister Jane Lomax-Smith unknowingly appears in an internet video in which she brands members of Scientology as "bastards" while criticising the group's entitlement to tax exemptions for religious organisations.

The YouTube video shows Dr Lomax-Smith in front of a restaurant in Waymouth St, next door to Scientology, asking a group of masked people: "Are you all related to someone who's been sucked in?"

"They should be taxed, the bastards," she is heard saying. "They shouldn't be tax free, we're subsidising them."
