Australia Qld's Robbie Katter may have to say sorry
Misses hurt Roar as Victory win A-League
Andrew Nabbout has scored the game's only goal before limping off injured for Melbourne Victory who have beaten Brisbane 1-0 in their A-League clash.The Roar had the bulk of possession but struggled to convert it into opportunities, with Roy O'Donovan's point-blank miss midway through Friday night's second half proving costly.
Robbie Katter may have to follow in Annastacia Palaszczuk's footsteps and tell Queensland's parliament he is sorry for something he said.
The premier had to say sorry last month for threatening last year to take discretionary funding away from Katter's Australian Party for not denouncing Senator Fraser Anning over a speech.
The apology came after the ethics committee found her actions had amounted to improper interference with the free performance by the KAP members and constituted contempt.
Now the ethics committee has taken umbrage over comments made by Mr Katter, the member for Traeger, questioning their investigation in an opinion piece and on radio.
Jane Hall, Kate Box and Zoe Terakes join Wentworth
Production for Wentworth’s highly anticipated eighth season kicked off over the weekend, with all your favourite inmates returning to the prison yard after the death of two much-loved characters last season. When the series returns in 2020, the cast will be joined by new additions Kate Box (Upright, Les Norton, Rake), Jane Hall (Neighbours, House Husband) and Zoe Terakes (Janet King, The End).
In a report, they note that Mr Katter had said it would be understandable if some people were sceptical of the ethic's committee's independence and objectivity.
The committee reckons the MP for Traeger's comments on their integrity could bring them and the Legislative Assembly into disrepute.
"As such there is the potential for the comments to constitute a contempt of parliament," they say on Monday.
To avoid a conflict of interest, they are recommending the matter be handed to the House to ask Mr Katter to explain and then decide what action to take.
The also recommend the House reinforce the importance of respecting the ethics committee.
