ACT Opposition Leader Jeremy Hanson has just issued a media release where he “slammed the lack of integrity and character of Greens Minister Shane Rattenbury.”
It seems Mr Rattenbury didn’t support Hanson’s call for an inquiry into ACTEW.
“Despite his rhetoric in the media at the ‘obscene’ rates of pay at ACTEW, Rattenbury today danced to the tune of his ACT Labor mates and gave in to their demands for no further scrutiny into an area that is of significant concern to the community,” Mr Hanson said today.
“This act of weakness strips Shane Rattenbury of any traces of independence he might have left, and casts serious doubts on the integrity of his comments in the media. “Shane Rattenbury has talked tough about these matters, but when push came to shove he slinked away and did a deal behind closed doors with the Labor Party.
“The people of Canberra who clung to the hope that the Greens might genuinely offer ‘third party insurance’ had that hope shattered today. I think even the Greens’ supporters would be disgusted at this cowardly capitulation.
Check out the full release, but before you do I want you to use your imagination.
Imagine young Jeremy stomping his little foot on the ground over and over. Imagine his right arm stuck straight out from his shoulder with a stiff finger pointed across the room at Rattenbery, who is whistling and staring at his finger nails innocently. Imagine Jeremy’s eyes boiling over with tears and his voice shill and full of impotent fury.
Got that image? Ok now read the release.
