LA­BOR’S MIXED MES­SAGES AT WORK

The Weekend Australian - - POLITICS IN TURMOIL -

Mark Drey­fus Au­gust 20

‘Where there is a rea­son­able ba­sis for sug­gest­ing that some of these mem­bers of par­lia­ment are not el­i­gi­ble, then of course it should be con­sid­ered by the High Court’

Bill Shorten Septem­ber 4

‘I strongly be­lieve that MPs and sen­a­tors should not be forced to pro­duce ev­i­dence to counter claims that are made com­pletely with­out ev­i­dence’

Shorten Novem­ber 9

‘I’ve got com­plete con­fi­dence when we have uni­ver­sal dis­clo­sure of all MPs that both Jus­tine Keay and Su­san Lamb have sat­is­fied the nec­es­sary tests, full stop’

Jus­tine Keay Yes­ter­day

‘I would be in­cred­i­bly con­fi­dent of get­ting through that process. Part of me sort of thinks that prob­a­bly is the only step to re­ally put an end to all this and com­pletely clar­ify it’

Shorten Yes­ter­day

‘What we are say­ing is let’s get ev­ery par­lia­men­tar­ian to put all their facts on the ta­ble’
