“Birdman” charged with attempted murder

June 06, 2018

The man who gave Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull the finger last month after accusing him of pushing in front of a pub queue has now been charged with attempted murder over an alleged domestic violence incident.

Conservatives leader Cory Bernardi says former Labor Senator Sam Dastyari’s support of 26-year-old Nick Gordon says a great deal about the former MP.

Gordon made headlines across the country and won public support two weeks ago after he received a $756 fine for refusing to leave Brisbane’s Carindale Hotel during a “politics in the pub” appearance with Mr Turnbull.

But footage revealed by the Courier Mail days later showed the PM did not cut into a line at the pub to order a beer, despite an online petition by former Labor senator Sam Dastyari asking Australians “to pitch in $5 and buy him a beer”.

Mr Dastyari was slammed by 2GB’s Ben Fordham at the time, who labelled him “desperate to stay relevant” after starting the petition, “It shows a lack of judgement from Sam Dastyari to be standing up for a bloke who was so drunk he abused the PM.”

The petition raised enough money for the man to pay off his fine and left a few extra hundred dollars which he said had left him with enough money to buy his mates a beer as well.

Senator Bernardi has told Ben Fordham on Sky News Mr Dastyari’s support for Mr Gordon speaks volumes.
