There seem to be too many coincidences in public life.
Remember when Bill Heffernan tried, under Parliamentary privilege, to suggest that Justice Michael Kirby had improperly used his Commonwealth car. All lies but under the Howard brand. Zoom forward to the utegate affair with Eric Abetz waving an email that was eventually proved a forgery. That was reported in the M publication the Daily Telegraph by Russel Lewis who surprise surprise broke the Peter Slipper allegations which are the subject of a Federal Court affidavit pertaining to matters that occurred when Abetz was government leader in the Senate (2003) and thus would have some knowledge of. The more things change!!
