Bullying claim ‘an old tactic'

FORMER Labor Party candidate Shane Guley has taken Mayor Brad Carter’s side in his public row with Capricornia MP Kirsten Livermore.

Mr Guley, who has declared his intention to stand for the Queensland Party in Rockhampton at the next state election, says he was victimised by the ALP after he was accused of bullying.

Ms Livermore’s statement in parliament this week, damning Cr Carter as a bully, is a tried and tested tactic, he said.

“I certainly know how Brad Carter must be feeling. They make wide-ranging statements about someone’s character, without giving details,” he said.

Mr Guley challenged Ms Livermore to repeat her allegations outside parliament.

A spokesman for the MP’s office in Rockhampton said there would be no comment on Mr Guley’s outburst.

The spokesman said the working relationship between Ms Livermore and Cr Carter had not been damaged by her statement.
