Hey Pauline Hanson’s mole, if you’re reading this: please explain

Pauline Hanson stands to lose a fortune in legal fees after the man who leaked her emails purporting to show a vote-rigging cover-up failed to show up in court yesterday. It now appears the whistleblower may not exist at all.

    The name Godwin Grech comes to mind…and don’t believe your paranoid beliefs are realistic – do your homework first…

    Ah Rattner, your true name is obviously Keyser Söze. 😀

    Wouldn’t you think that any lawyer worth his money, would have said “we can not take this to trial until we meet this man, and verify his claims”???? What kind of legal representation is Hanson getting? How could they be that foolish? Or is this just one more massive publicity grab (at any cost… at a huge cost now it seems) by Ms Hanson?

    I am Michael Rattner.

    Oh wait – no I’m not! Right first name though.

    Groan!!! Pauline is at it again, publicity hungry!! But she usually goes after the scent of money so she may consider suing her lawyer for negligent advice, May be she can recover some of her costs in this matter that way.

    Yes, you would think that she and her lawyer would have tested the validity of the evidence before starting legal proceedings. Once again, it demonstrates her solipsistic view of the world.

    … he’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy. (!)

    I am Michael Rattner and so is my wife!

    If “Michael Rattner” manages to see Pauline Hanson buried under a mountain of legal bills, I think we should make him Australian of the Year… might just be a blank space, but a space to which I would be most grateful.
