Federal Human Services minister Ian Campbell met with former Labor premier and criminal Brian Burke for 20 minutes last year to discuss a proposed indigenous cultural centre. Campbell has subsequently resigned.
Kevin Rudd’s public account of his dinner with disgraced former premier Brian Burke has been directly contradicted by one of the invited guests.
The Perth businessman, one of Mr Burke’s clients who was invited to the dinner, told The Weekend Australian yesterday the dinner was deliberately arranged and paid for by Mr Burke to introduce “a future leader of the Opposition” to West Australian businessmen, who were his clients, and also to state bureaucrats.
Hmm. Further to the above:
It has been revealed a Western Australian Labor Party heavyweight was touting Kevin Rudd as a future Prime Minister just days after Mr Rudd met the controversial lobbyist Brian Burke two years ago.
UPDATE II. Rudd enthusiast Christopher Sheil – cautiously reintroducing himself to blogdom after 2004’s exhausting year of blogging dangerously – shuts down comments and runs away following criticism of his little mate. Who associates with known criminals.
UPDATE III. Editorial in the Age:
Just a few days ago Rudd had Howard looking baffled; now Howard has Rudd on the run.
UPDATE IV. More trouble for Kevni:
In a startling revelation that calls into question Mr Rudd’s version of events at Perugino Restaurant in West Perth on August 1, 2005, it can be revealed the then shadow foreign affairs minister was the booked headline act at Mr Burke’s private soiree.
