Campbell Newman tells media to ‘Google’ bikes and the ALP

‘The Queensland premier has accused the Labor party of accepting donations from bikies but when asked for evidence has told journalists to ‘Google it. Campbell Newman first made the claim in the people’s forum with opposition leader, Annastacia Palaszczuk, on Friday night asking her if Labor’s donation money was “clean” and to guarantee she had not accepted donations from bikies. Palaszczuk dismissed the claim as ‘ridiculous’.  Newman repeated the claim on Saturday saying it was up to the Labor party to prove they did not accept donations from bikies, not up to him to prove it.’ (The Guardian, 25.1.15)
