Michael, I just walked in to court 3 at the Mag Court & said hello to Chris Brown, who was standing out in the waiting area. The vultures are circling...
We've been moved down to Court 1. Kathy's here but we have to await whatever is on the general docket this morning.
Last time I saw Chris in the Magistrates' Court was during one of Craig Thomson's hearings, related to charges he had stolen funds from the HSU. Brown, who I understand had been installed as an interim HSU administrator, at the urging, I believe, of Bill Shorten, took the opportunity, during a break in proceedings, to reach over & shake Thomson's hand. Wasn't Chris also on good terms with Michael Williamson? Just one big happy family?
