By now everyone would be aware of this news (despite the story’s absence from most of our mainstream media groups):
A lawsuit by One Nation Party co-founder David Ettridge against federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott will head to court next month.
Mr Ettridge is suing Mr Abbott for damages of more than $1.5 million. He has accused Mr Abbott of acting unlawfully in 1998 by assisting and encouraging litigation against One Nation in the Queensland courts.
If this action had have been against a Labor or Independent politician, Tony Abbott will be screaming that they stand aside. Like he did with Craig Thomson:
Federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has taken his attack on Craig Thomson to a new level, using parliament to call for the MP’s resignation just hours after the former union leader appealed to be left alone.
Mr Abbott has called for Mr Thomson’s resignation before, but not in parliament.
It’s good to know that Tony wants to protect the integrity of the parliament. Perhaps he could walk the walk – and not just talk the talk – by at least stepping aside while he faces his own demons in the court of the land which would of course protect the integrity of the parliament . . . enormously. What do you think?
