The federal Liberal member for Hughes, Craig Kelly, signed affidavits stating he was a director of his collapsed family furniture company as it fought legal action in New Zealand — despite telling parliament earlier this year there was “no substance whatsoever” to suggestions he was controlling the company behind the scenes.

    To clarify in par 3, the sole shareholder reference was to DVK Int as it relates to DV Kelly.

    Can’t wait for Suzanne Blakes take on this, surely she will be as outraged as she was to Thomson.

    But really while intersting and could lead to some “political” issues for the libs there are more important stories.

    He’s innocent I tell you… obviously innocent! The whole thing is a vicious smear – a conspiracy of St George Bank, his unpaid staff, the New Zealand Courts and Anthony Albanese pulling the strings.

    We need men like this in parliament – men who are willing to risk their all in the turbulent seas of business, lose the lot and send their creditors scurrying off to the courts. Men of character and courage. Oh yes, and vision.

    Actually I disagree completely with the parliamentary ban on bankrupts. I reckon that running a business into the ground and leaving everyone out of pocket is an excellent grounding in current conservative political theory and practice. The whole business is bankrupt from start to finish. We need folks who know how to look after themselves.

    Peter – Have you seen Albo’s ;atest detective work? It’s regarding Abbott’s claim’s he read the BHP statement at 3.45pm before going on 7.30 and saying he hadn’t, Hockey backed his story saying they read it together, the issue is Hockey is in the chamber speaking at 3.45.

    Again on sideshow but funny.
