Scoresby mp denies branch stacking allegations
Dartmouth MP Bob Katter today denied claims he and his wife spent more than $10,000 to hire a legal team to pursue their defamation case against the government.
After an angry outburst, Mr Katter refused to back down over claims his wife had been pressured by senior cabinet ministers, including Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, who “did everything they possibly could to silence her and intimidate and threaten” her.
After Mr Katter spoke, Mr Bishop held an emergency press conference to 더킹카지노challenge the claims.

“I didn’t go to the federal government meeting,” he said.
Mr Katter told Channel 10 that “the fact that I’m sitting here today, with the matter hanging over our heads… I’m in the best position to answer the questions”.
