PM calls for Brough's head

4BC News: Prime Minister Julia Gillard has called on Opposition Leader Tony Abbott to ''come clean'' about what he knew about the Peter Slipper saga, contending there was a political conspiracy to attack the former speaker to change the balance of power in the federal parliament.

As Mr Abbott today denied there was a Coalition conspiracy, Ms Gillard said Mr Abbott had to stop using ''weasel'' words over the matter and disendorse the Liberal National Party candidacy of Mal Brough - who the Federal Court found worked with James Ashby to harm Mr Slipper.

In an interview with ABC Radio on Friday, Ms Gillard also repeated Labor calls for Mr Brough to come to Canberra to answer questions from the federal parliamentary press gallery about his role in the Slipper case.

"And then [Mr Abbott] should still disendorse Mr Brough," Ms Gillard said.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Bella
    No I couldn't be bothered. Make up your own stuff or make arrangements to meet with CRY.

  • We all know you're an idiot mick so it's very hard to explain things to you. If you read the Federal Court judgement you will find all your answers. Brough lied - simple as that. Now why are you supporting him.
    Now are you also saying that a Federal Court decision is a result of something Labor did? Are you saying they somehow influenced the court's decision in some way. Is that because it went against something you believe in?

    Bob Lord Tuesday 18 December, 2012 - 1:50 PM
  • Hey Bob, yes you Bob Lord, as you present yourself as such an aficionado of the ALP

    The question remains ~ how could Gillard have been Wilsons lover for over four years and not know what was going on?

    Gillard admits she was involved and indeed complicit in the fraud, but now claims she didnt know what Wilsons intentions were.

    Mmmm, didnt know?

    Really?

    I wonder just exactly it was she thought she was doing in Boulder.

    Maybe you could take it upon yourself to answer ONE of these questions.

    BELLA Tuesday 18 December, 2012 - 1:43 PM
  • So Bob Lard answer the question without the bs.
    "When first asked he denied all knowledge of Ashby", who asked the question? Also the other part of the questions and where was he lying on record as you claim Bob Lord.
    It is starting to look like yet another version of the Heiner affair, labor does not change thier spots.

  • Well mick - it's something about politicians lying you know. You may have mentioned Liar and Politician in 5234 of your posts. Mal Brough is a wannabe politician who lied. Do you support him?

    Bob Lord Tuesday 18 December, 2012 - 9:58 AM
  • "Brough is already on the record as lying about this case. When first asked he denied all knowledge of Ashby and a few days later rescinded that when proof was offered that he did know Ashby", so who was asking Bob Lard? and why in your mind that this is an issue.
