The ABC brings word that the ousted ACT Labor Secretary Bill Redpath is planning revenge on those who brought him down (in the gentlemanly terms one would expect from a former legal luminary):
- “I had hardly got my feet under the desk before the rumours started,” he said.
“I’m disappointed that I’m finishing a job today that I never really got a chance to start.
“I think that any new secretary deserves support and loyalty and not this sort of campaign.
“If I ever found out exactly who it was I would take appropriate action.”
We’ll have to look forward to finding out what “appropriate action” might be!
Deputy Secretary David Tansey is taking over in an acting role until a permanent appointment can be made.
