Tips and rumours

Gossip on latest Frankston debacle ... fruit company in trouble ... is it a pub or a childcare centre? You decide ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours … Frankston woes continue. The Victorian state seat of Frankston, currently the fiefdom of suspended independent Geoff Shaw, continues to fascinate. With the seat up for grabs at November's Victorian election, Labor's preselected candidate for Frankston, Helen Constas, recently resigned suddenly after allegations of workplace bullying were splashed across the papers.

So where did the leak come from? We've heard a rumour it was from a source within Labor -- possibly a member of Constas' own faction. Draw your own conclusions as to why someone would do that to an ALP comrade ... and can we expect to hear more of this case, possibly in the courts? One to watch.

Selling lemons. Sounds like a certain Australian fruit and veggie company has fallen foul of the law in Thailand ...
