What a week its been. First live-ex figure Garry Robinson gets charged on two counts of dishonestly influencing a Commonwealth public official and one count of using a false Commonwealth document to obtain a gain.
[One wonders which particular Commonwealth employee was "influenced". VALE has a few ideas about that one of course!]
And then, a one-page letter that the federal government has spent a year and a half and tens of thousands of dollars trying to keep from public sight raises explosive questions about the conduct and integrity of Federal Minister for Agriculture, Barnaby Joyce. And who wrote the letter? The March 2015 letter was written by Paul Grimes, the former head of the Agriculture Department. Hmmm, same person to whom live ex-vet Dr Lynn Simpson wrote in Feb 2015, detailing her treatment by the Dept of Ag.
Oh what a tangled web is being woven.....
