ICAC: Robyn Parker appears over “big man” speculation

Posted on by

Robyn Parker heads into the ICAC today. Photo: Daniel MunozAT least one Hunter Liberal MP looks to have escaped unscathed a turnin the witness seat at the Independent Commission Against Corruption’spolitical donations inquiry.


Maitland MP Robyn Parker told the inquiry this morning she knewnothing about any money that former Newcastle MP Tim Owen and hiscampaign manager Hugh Thomson had speculated her campaign received asa share from $120,000 that a “big man”, allegedly Nathan Tinkler, hadpledged to Mr Owen’s.

And CDs that Newcastle Lord Mayor and developer Jeff McCloy had toldthe inquiry he may have paid Ms Parker’s husband for are likely a”family band” recording her son Dylan made after he was diagnosed witha tumour, the inquiry was told.

For one brief moment, it looked like another Hunter MP was in thedoldrums when counsel assisting the inquiry Geoffrey Watson SCrevealed one prohibited donor, Bill Saddington, had given $600 to MsParker’s campaign via a fundraiser auction.

But the money was swiftly refunded when Ms Parker’s camp learned MrSaddington had lodged a development application and could be deemed aproperty developer under electoral funding laws, as well as hisbetter-known role as the owner of bulk hardware business Saddingtons,the inquiry heard.

Her campaign manager, Maitland City Cr Philip Penfold, reported thedonation to the Liberal Party, Ms Parker, the former environmentminister said.

The money had been given at a cocktail fundraiser event.

Joe Hockey fundraiser called before ICAC

“Fairly soon after that event he [Mr Saddington] had submitted adevelopment application for a subdivision so we refunded his donationfor the auction prize and also his attendance at the cocktail party,”Ms Parker said.

Ms Parker gave $17,000 to her own campaign.

The inquiry was shown records of texts between Mr Owen and Mr Thomsondiscussing advice from former minister and senior Liberal ChrisHartcher to Mr Owen that $120,000 was to be split between his and twoother seats.

Mr Owen suspected the money had been shared with “RP” and “AC”,thought to be references to Ms Parker and former Charlestown MP AndrewCornwell.

Mr Thomson has given evidence he believed the money was coming from MrTinkler, and was arranged by former police minister and senior HunterLiberal Mike Gallacher.

Mr Gallacher’s legal team has suggested Mr Gallacher referred toformer premier Barry O’Farrell as the “big man” and not Mr Tinkler,and that the $120,000 may be funding from the Liberal Party’s headoffice for key seats.

In any case, Ms Parker said the money had nothing to do with her.

Her campaign had already paid for its “key seats package”, and it hadbeen drummed into her that candidates were not to touch the money.

But she said she believed Mr O’Farrell would have been too busycampaigning as opposition leader to get involved in the party’sfunding for Hunter seats.

Ms Parker was also asked about references Mr McCloy made during hisevidence to a “nagging thing in the back of my head” about him havingpaid Ms Parker’s husband for some CDs.

Ms Parker said she believed she knew what that was about.

“My son was very ill, he had a golf ball-sized tumour in his head andone of the things we did when he was sick was make up a list of thingshe wanted to do -essentially you’d call it a bucket list- before hedied,” Ms Parker said.

“One of those things was recording a CD with the family band.”

“Is your husband a muso of some kind?” Mr Watson asked.

“Well he’d like to be, he’s a doctor,” Ms Parker replied.

“They’re all talented musicians.

“I have some CDs left if you want one?” she offered.

Ms Parker said her son, who had featured on the ABC’s AustralianStory, and his band perform at charity functions “so a number ofpeople bought CDs and contributed to their endeavours and nextproduction”.

The inquiry is continuing.

The identity of a mysterious “big man” who helped bankroll Liberal candidates before the last election is firming as embattled coal baron Nathan Tinkler after state MP Robyn Parker rejected claims at a corruption inquiry that it could be Barry O’Farrell.

Ms Parker, the member for Maitland, was called to the Independent Commission Against Corruption on Friday after text messages suggested she may have received a share of a potentially illegal $120,000 donation from the “big man” before the 2011 state election.

The commission has heard the money was to be split between the then Newcastle Liberal candidate Tim Owen and two other candidates.

Mr Owen wrote in a text message to his campaign manager in December 2010 that he suspected the other two recipients of the cash would be “RP and AC”, a reference to the Charlestown Liberal candidate Andrew Cornwell and Ms Parker.

But Ms Parker rejected claims she received any of the money, and she has not been accused of any wrongdoing.

The barrister for former police minister Mike Gallacher – one of the MPs under investigation by the ICAC – has previously suggested that the “big man” was the then Liberal leader, Mr O’Farrell, who could approve funding for key seats from the party’s head office.

But Ms Parker said it was “inconceivable” that Mr O’Farrell would have been “occupying himself with funding for campaigns” so close to the March election.

The inquiry has heard evidence that the “big man” was Mr Tinkler, whose property development group Buildev allegedly made illegal donations to Mr Owen’s campaign.

Property developers have been banned from making political donations in NSW since 2009.

In a week that has seen Mr Owen and Mr Cornwell quit parliament and a third Liberal MP step aside from the party over allegations they received illegal donations, Ms Parker emerged unscathed after her brief stint in the witness box.

She gave evidence her campaign team refunded a $600 donation from a property developer once they became aware the payment had come from a banned donor.

Bill Saddington, who owns a property development company, made the payment for an auction prize at a fundraiser cocktail party in September 2010, six months before the March 2011 election.

“I’m not suggesting this is anything wrong on your part,” counsel assisting the inquiry, Geoffrey Watson, SC, said.

“I just want to point to the point that Mr Saddington was a donor, relatively small, to your campaign.”

The inquiry heard that the president of the Maitland State Electoral Conference (SEC), which includes all the Liberal Party branches in a state electorate, realised after the auction that Mr Saddington had lodged a development application.

This was reported to the Liberal Party and Ms Parker said “we refunded his donation for the auction prize and also his attendance at the cocktail party”.

STOCKLINES: The calving pattern tells you what is going on

Posted on by

Brian Cumming.Asyou drive around checking calves, it’s an ideal opportunityto think about how you might measure this season’s results.

When we’re asked, how is the calving going,we tend to think we are being asked about how many calving problems have been.

But what if we think about how calving is reflecting the herds management and fertility?Short joining periods make management easier, and keep the pressure on herd fertility.

If only the females getting in calf during these periods are kept, fertility of the whole herd will increase.

Nine weekjoining for cows is a good target. Some producers go tighter, some a bit longer.

Joining periods greater than fifteen weeks really need the torch putting to them.Within a joining period, the pattern of calving is the next indicator.

A cow comes on heat once every three weeks, and accepts the bull for about 18 hours only.

If she does notconceive, she’ll have to wait another three weeks for a second chance.

By the time cows get themselves back into a joining mood after calving, they then only have about two chances to re-join if they are to calve within a twelve month period every year.

The number of calves born every three weeks is a useful indicator of fertility, and can identify some herd problems.

Most calves should arrive in the first three weeks of calving. As soon as the first calf hits the ground, you want them all to come.

Up to 70 per cent of calves in the first three weeks, most of the rest in the next three weeks, and just a handful remaining after that, shows things are going well.

If only a few calves arrive in the first three weeks but then plenty arrive over the next six, there may have been only a limited number of cows cycling the day a proven working bull was put out.

As joining progresses, more cows begin cycling, and are served.

Extra feed post calving, or calving in better body condition may help.

If there are lots of calves in the first cycle, then very few in the next, but they start appearing again in the third cycle, again something’s going on.

If only one bull was used, he may have broken down temporarily mid joining and stopped serving cows, but then recovered to rejoin the remaining cows.

If more than one bull was used, the dominant bull may have stopped working but still managed to keep his lesser rivals away from the cows. Get the bulls checked out as soon as possible.

What if there are only moderate numbers of calves equally spaced among all cycles?

Perhaps there are too many cows for the bull, or maybe he’s just a low server. Vets are able to do serving tests on bulls to rate their serving capacity.

If you keep records of when calves are born, and who their mother was, it’s not difficult to work out the calving pattern.

Remember, the calving period should be considered as starting about 280 days after the bull goes into the mob. Starting to count from when the first calf is born is notquite the same thing.

The Home Cook: Perfect pots of pure indulgence

Posted on by

I hope you enjoyed the lemony, lemon chicken. As you would have gathered, lemons are as indispensable in my cooking as fresh herbs and garlic.

Zest is used not only for garnish but to add a bit of tang to winter vegetables – mushrooms, sprouts, broccoli, mashed swede or turnips.

Lemon halves placed into the cavity of chicken before roasting and when baking fish, sit on a layer of lemon slices.

Juice gives balance to sauces, mayonnaise, hollandaise or vinaigrette.

Use juice to curdle milk for banana cake and scones.

Added to jams it increases pectin.

Pancakes squeezed with lemon juice, sprinkle over sugar, roll up with whipped cream.

Last but not least the all-important chilled glass of gin ’n’ tonic.

If you would like a copy of my previous lemon recipes,please drop me a line.

They are: fairy cakes with lemon butter; Moroccan preserved lemons; and lemon confit – marmalade the French way.

Little pots of lemon delicious


3 eggs- separated

1 cup caster sugar

¼ cup plain, white flour

1 cup milk

2 tablespoons butter – melted

zest 2 lemons – finely grated

juice 4 lemons – approx. ¾ cup


Brush eight ovenproof pots (¾ cup capacity) with melted butter. Place into a roasting pan. Set aside.

Using a bowl beat together egg yolks and sugar until creamy. Blend in flour, milk, butter, zest and juice. Whisk egg whites until firm peaks form. Gently fold into lemon mixture until just combined. Divide evenly among the prepared pots.

Pour enough cold water into pan, to come half way up side of pots. Bake low in oven, at 180ºC for 25 minutes or until sponge topping feels firm to touch. You may need to cover towards end of cooking time. Remove puddings from pan. Stand for five minutes.

Serve these self-saucing puddings warm, dusted with icing sugar and cream. For a large pudding, pour Lemon Delicious into a greased one-litre dish and cook for 40 to 45 minutes.

Handy hint

Pick lemons when ripe, as unlike other fruit they don’t continue to ripen off the tree.

To preserve their freshness place in plastic bags, store in fridge crisper draw and you will have lemons for many months to come.

Happy cooking!

Tim Friend, Brent Marra, Pilo Dagiaro banned at Western Vic Football tribunal

Posted on by

BANNED: Natimuk United coach Tim Friend has received a two-match ban for striking Pimpino’s Sam Lehmann. Picture: PAUL CARRACHERTHREE players received bans after fronting the Western Vic Football tribunal on Wednesday night.

Natimuk United coach Tim Friend’s season came to a premature end after he received a two-match ban for striking Pimpino’s Sam Lehmann during their Horsham District league clash at the weekend.

The ban ends a controversial season for Friend, who was suspended earlier in the year for conduct unbecoming after criticising the league on social media.

He had a huge year in front of goal, booting 47 goals from 13 matches, and he led his side to six wins and sixth position on the ladder going into their final game against Laharum on Saturday.

With the Rams unable to make the finals, one match of Friend’s ban will carry over into the 2015 season.

Nhill senior footballer Brent Marra was handed a four-week suspension for using abusive, threatening or obscene language towards or relating to an umpire in his side’s Wimmera league match against Horsham at the weekend.

Western Vic Football manager Steve McQueen said two weeks of the ban were suspended until the end of 2015.

Stawell under-17 player Pilo Dagiaro was found guilty of striking and received a two-match ban.

AFL legend wows Macarthur business and community leaders

Posted on by

Three-time AFL premiership winning player and four-time premiership winning coach Kevin Sheedy has provided Macarthur’s business leaders with an insight into the AFL’s newest club — the Greater Western Sydney Giants.

Speaking at this morning’sMacarthur Regional Organisation of Councils breakfast held at Picton Bowling Club, Mr Sheedy and Giants chief executive David Matthews revealed the inner workings of the club.

Former AFL premiership winning player and coach Kevin Sheedy.

Mr Sheedy said the establishment of the club was a way for ‘‘NSW to a get a reward for what it started’’.

‘‘The first rules of AFL were written by a couple of men from western Sydney,’’ he said.

‘‘People from Melbourne don’t like that.’’

Mr Matthews said the club’s business strategy was based around the communities needs.

‘‘We wanted to create a club like no other,’’ he said.

‘‘We want to be judged by the community… and for them to value what we do.’’

Mr Matthews also quipped ‘‘Sheeds and I often talk about how we are the only club to produce a Wallaby’’, referring to formed Giants player turned Australian Rugby Union representative, Israel Folau — who was also a former resident of Minto.

Mr Sheedy also took a friendly swipe and the club’s cross town rivals, the Sydney Swans.

‘‘A swan is basically a duck with a stretched neck,’’ he said.
