Roger Corbett is one of Australia's biggest pokie pushers and now, he's looking to move into power in Warringah.
Reports just came out that on Friday, the Liberals' Federal Electorate Conference in Warringah is set to elect Roger Corbett as their new President.
WE NEED TO STOP THIS.
Corbett is currently the Chairman of the Australian Leisure & Hospitality Group (ALH), which is the Woolworths-majority-owned pokies division. He oversees 12,000 pokies causing the loss of millions of dollars every year to Australian families.
And now, Tony Abbott's mob want him to be the President of Abbott's division to essentially provide longevity to Abbott's future in Parliament.
This is disastrous on every front and we need to send a strong message NOW to the decision-makers: KEEP CORBETT OUT!
Considering that the Northern Beaches, which is in Abbott's seat of Warringah loses $2.5 million every week to poker machines, securing a dangerous pokie-pusher to the Liberal leadership of this area is clearly not in the best interests of Northern Beaches residents.
