LABOR'S top legal spokesman, Kelvin Thomson, quit the Opposition front bench yesterday after it was revealed he gave a glowing reference to fugitive drug lord Tony Mokbel.
With such statements such as;
"years of unblemished conduct"
and that the notorious Melbourne underworld figure had made a
"significant contribution to the community"
he admits that he had actually never met the man who was the subject of his glowing character reference.
Mr Thompson also said he'd never heard of Tony Mokbel.
I think he'd be the only Victorian who hasn't!
