The Drum Wrap


The ‘Drum Wrap’ on Federal Courts dismissal of
Peter Slipper’s sexual harassment case ‘fantasy’
makes interesting reading, the wee turd, James
Ashby, who even Barnaby Joyce never believed
set out to create political turmoil for his boss in
a way which was neither plausible nor remotely
true; but that didn’t stop rife opportunism from
brewing Mal Brough’s icky goo to fever pitch

Justice Steve Rares ruled the case was intended
to cause Slipper "significant public, reputational
and political damage", which it did – and lacked
credibility he said by being an abuse of process;
makes one wonder just whose credibility failed
a test of wasting so much Commonwealth cash
