Pauline Hanson with One Nation director David Ettridge in 1998.
A LAWSUIT by One Nation Party co-founder David Ettridge against federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott will head to court next month.
What GREAT news that B------ed Abbott needs to be brought to account as well as Howard as he had a part in it too
Abbott certainly has a lot to answer for. I recall that he almost single handedly waged a vicious campaign against Hanson and set up a "slush fund" to finance the proceedings. I hope they nail him to the wall, but like most politicians, he will no doubt slither out of the worst of it.
Unfortunately you are probably right hugo .
Interesting timing !!!!!
There is an interesting timeline article about this at Tony Abbott and the Slush Funds
fwed, how dare you expose St.Abbotts' twisting and turning and honest lies,
Good article and summary of how it all came to pass, wonder if Pauline Hanson will get any compensation if it is shown that was all deliberately engineered. I see she is thinking of re-standing as an MP.
Thanks very much for those links Fwed
Thanks fwed - it just confirms my view that politics is a dirty game and it's politicians who make it that way. I think that when we vote we actually vote for whoever we consider the best of a bad lot - not much to choose between any of them. I admit there are a few politicians who serve their contituents as well as they are able, given that a good number of decisions are made based on party lines and not what their constituents necessarily want. I am talkikng about all sides of politics, both major and minor parties.
wow Pommy, I can't argue with you on that.
Pommy how true tht is.
Ted Mack was a good one
Not one abbott defender? maybe it is indefensible?
I am willing to give it a go.
Mr Abbit is honest
He dosent lie
trustworthy is his muddle name
he has big ears dosen't he ?
Cant tink of any others, sory.
Slushy it was so 'face saving' for a true conservative like you to stand up for him, are you related to Tony? you bear a resemblace to his look of anger when tony is unable to answer a question and his face quivers with angst Apart from that I wish you would stop licking your nose, It's not very nice.
Honest Abbott ROFL -- he is also SUPPOSED to be a Christian too -- and yet he does very UNchristian things and he does lie.
