    Apparently there are no consequences or financial compensation when Labor and the health department deliberately set out to destroy a business, despite being found guilty.

  2. Lee says:

    High Court appeal?

    Even that would cost a small fortune.

  3. C.L. says:

    Hows-about those deep-pocketed Voice ‘corporates’ get in touch with the Cooks and underwrite an appeal?

  4. Boambee John says:

    Those released should be placed into the custody of the Court. Let the decision makers that full responsibility for their decision.

    Maybe he has a cause of action in negligence against Sutton and/or the government of Victoria. I haven’t looked at this for many years now, but on the face of it there might be a good case.

    It doesn’t matter whether the Government is Liberal or Labor, the Dept Of Transport inspectors and Health inspectors will be Labor men almost to a man, and those that aren’t have no hope of promotion.
    These are the chokepoints of State and Local Government.
