In a case of odd bedfellow, ACT Opposition leader Bill Stefaniak has been taking advice from former Labor Chief Minister Rosemary Follett. Well, the advice mainly seems to have been to just hang in there and tough out the latest scandal, but from the Canberra Times story on the matter it appears that one sought out the other.
Mr Stefaniak talked briefly about that email to the ACT Chamber of Commerce and Industry yesterday. Apparently someone rang him to say (mysteriously) they thought it was great publicity, but the Opposition leader would much rather the focus was back on the Government’s failings.
His speech to the CCI was part of the Liberals’ attempt to contain the fallout, with threats having been made of businesses withdrawing donations to the party if it continues in the current shambolic state.
