Labor must come clean

Felix Ellis,Liberal Member for Braddon

Acting Labor Leader Anita Dow needs to update Tasmanians on Labor’s internal investigations regarding claims against Member for Franklin, David O’Byrne and State President, Ben McGregor.

Is the President still threatening legal action against resurrected Labor leader Rebecca White?

What are the outcomes of the investigation into the claims Mr McGregor sent inappropriate messages to a former female colleague?

Why is it taking so long for Labor to conduct an investigation into Mr O’Byrne when he has admitted his behaviour did not meet the standard expected of himself?

Given Labor’s chaotic factional war has only grown worse in recent weeks, is Labor’s National Executive still planning to take over management of the Tasmanian Labor Party?*

While Labor might be distracted shuffling deck chairs on its same old sinking ship, it has questions to answer.

The Acting leader needs to step up and provide an update.
