Response to Matilda (Original post)

6. Slipper has filed for full costs from Ashby and Harmers.

It's on an indemnity basis, which means he's going for the full costs, whereas normally courts award up to 70% only.

If it's true that Ashby was paying only a nominal fee to Harmers, I can't see that being extended to paying his costs. Will Lib backers bail him out? Or will they leave him to swing?

Delicious.

And yet, very little being said by MSM. Murdoch press virtually ignoring the whole thing, and even the ABC is very low-key about it.

And Abbott staunchly defending Brough, because "he's my friend". Slipper was his friend, too, once upon a time.
