  1. Had Enough

    Sophie never responded, contested or took action against the Howard article http://www.theage.com.au/national/power-love-and-money-20110922-1knb7.html so it would be fair to think that the article was true and undoubtedly only the tip of the iceberg.

    Had Enough – perhaps the Indi news outlets ought to revisit the story?

    The signatory of the letter is the self same $906 dollar taxi fare man Adam Wyldeck. That is a SINGLE taxi fare.

  4. Honest Johnny

    We should also remember that Sophie was one of only a handful of politicians who boycotted the apology to the Stolen Generation back in 2008. At the time she denied the existence of a stolen generation. Classy.

    The interesting thing about icebergs is that is that there is so much more of it under the surface. Interesting thing about the Titanic is that it was supposed to be invincible!
