The Fairfax campaign against Abbott not hitting anyone as a teenager 35 years ago has reached cringeworthy levels.
One so-called witness, David Patch, admits he never saw the incident yet is a ‘witness’. Patch is actually a barrister working for the DPP.
My question is, how many lawyers call upon witnesses who actually didn’t witness something?
This so-called witness, David Patch states in today’s Sydney Morning Herald in a column by Phillip Coorey:
“I can categorically deny that I have had any contact, either directly or indirectly, with anyone in or associated with the Labor Party."
He said that he had rung The Sydney Morning Herald wanting to write a letter to the editor after reading the Henderson piece and had agreed, when asked by The Sydney Morning Herald, to instead write his recollections for the opinion pages.
"I spoke to Barbara Ramjan about it, that's all," Mr Patch said.
The bit left out by both Coorey and Patch are thatDavid Patch was a Labor candidate in 2004, and was Barbara Ramjan's campaign manager in 1977 at uni. In an article in the Herald, he says he did not see the incident but was nearby.
How can Patch seriously be considered either a ‘witness’ or ‘Independent’ or both?
