Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

SINCE re­tir­ing from pol­i­tics after los­ing the most se­cure con­ser­va­tive Fed­eral WA seat of O'Con­nor, for­mer MHR Wilson Tuckey ap­pears to be still com­ing to terms with his idle hands (“Tuckey takes on com­mu­nity group”, Gazette, De­cem­ber 2).

Ac­cord­ing to the ar­ti­cle, Mr Tuckey at­tempted to use ques­tion time to chal­lenge two Bel­mont coun­cil­lors about Bel­mont Com­mu­nity Group and asked about the "bona fides"; that is, the hon­est in­ten­tions of the group.

This is ex­tra­or­di­nary and I ques­tion Mr Tuckey’s mo­tives in what seems to be an at­tempt to smear the group (of which I am not a mem­ber) at a coun­cil meet­ing. KEVIN BET­TRIDGE, River­vale.
