Show of hands please, from those who’ve never had too much to drink and behaved less than.
That is not what is being discussed.
BS, you mentioned the wine cellar. End of.

Red herring. What I actually said was that he was a known visitor to Lindsay's mansion.

It's a matter of public interest how much time the Premier spends with the billionaire: News.com.au. And before you criticise the source, it was actually The Age that broke the story first.

Dan was directly asked by Louise Staley in Parliament if he had accepted any gifts from Lindsay Fox and appeared to dodge the question.

If the fall actually occurred at Lindsay's house then why was it covered up?

Lindsay Fox thinks its important enough to sue anyone who repeats it (hopefully not me!); however Dan has been known to frequent his Portsea mansion and indulge in the offerings of Lindsay's wine cellar -

EDIT: Lindsay Fox's mansion is in Portarlington on the Bellaraine Peninsula, not Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula.

I don't think so. Portsea is where the rich and famous have their houses (and Lindsay has his helipad); Portarlington (Bellarine Peninsula) doesn't rate.

From the Age, 4 July 2020:-

Billionaire trucking magnate Lindsay Fox has staked a new claim over thousands of square metres of beach in front of his clifftop mansion in Portsea while also launching court action that would allow him to develop part of the beach he successfully claimed as his own in 2013.
It is the latest attempt by Mr Fox to use a centuries-old common law right in English law to try to gain control over part of the popular Point King public beach which abuts his sprawling Portsea compound.
On Christmas Eve in 2013 the land titles office approved Mr Fox's bid to extend his property line onto the beach by approximately 45 metres, adding about $5 million in value to an estate that was then already worth about $25 million.
Last month, the rich-lister again applied to the Victorian land titles office to realign the boundary, claiming the natural build-up of sand entitled him to a larger share of the beach. If approved, the proposal would expand his beach holding by more than half its current size, extending it as far as 74 metres towards the waterline.
The application was filed on behalf of Fox family companies by Mornington-based planning consultancy Watsons Pty Ltd whose owner John Woodman – a planning consultant, lobbyist and developer – is at the centre of the Casey land scandal.
The Fox applications are based on the common law concept known as the "doctrine of accretion”, which allows for landowners by coasts and rivers to vary boundaries affected by natural rather than artificial changes to landscape and bodies of water.
It means that when sand builds up on a beach – as it has at Point King – landowners can apply to have their title extended as the high-water mark recedes.
Mr Fox said in a statement to The Sunday Age the public would continue to be able to access the beach by a longstanding public easement.

Okay I was right in the first place. And I thought Portarlington was pretty posh - you have the stunning views across the bay to Melbourne city don't you?

Yeah I'd heard about Lindsay trying to prevent public access to the beach in front of his house before - the decision in 2013 was completely wrong and happened under the former Liberal government. He's gone as far as trying to erect barricades to keep the public off the beach in front of his house full-stop but was told to take them down.

And I've finally found a link to the article that Linsday Fox wants to sue over so have a gander while you can - cairnspost.org

I should make it clear that I don't believe the latter part of the allegations - and if there's any truth to it whatsoever then it will be in a court of law anyway (won't it). But the most damning part for me - which is obviously true - is that Dan did indeed spent an awful lot of time at the Fox estate and was treated as an equal among the millionaire and billionaire company that hung out there on the weekends getting pretty 'tired and emotional'.

I mean you don't dance on your host's furniture unless you're feeling quite at home - right?

The views are all that Portarlington has going for it. It's as flat as a night-man's hat, and the prevailing architecture is outer suburban 1950's quarter acre block, single story economical. I'd take Queenscliff or Point Lonsdale over Portarlington any day.

I thought it went on his shoulder? I also remember reading somewhere "don't let the night-man catch your eye" as if he was evil or something.

Not entirely sure don but it may follow on from folk who work dairies. They wear a beret' type of hat, working around the rear end of cow's has it's numerous dangers. The beret' style hat keeps all sh1t out of your hair but doesn't stop it running down the collar of your shirt....Shocked  getting sh1t all over your self is a bit like being on here at times.

However this reminds me, did you hear the one about a Frenchman who lost his beret' in a cow paddock...Razz

What a charitable thought, and thanks for the explanation . . . now that we know your contributions take just a nanosecond it explains some of the obvious unthinking nonsense you produce.
Keep going and I'll keep the hook baited; it's better than normal angling because you guarantee a bite every time.

Well again, I'm delighted that I'm the raconteur in your life keeping you entertained and giving you hope for a better life. "What's Don Dunstan doing now?" you probably wonder as soon as you roll out of bed -

And I particularly feel extra sorry for you because you have the added Nazism of the City of Yarra (you remember, those idiots who want to ban gas cooking) on top of your commie Chairman Dan, so extra hearts going out to the poor people stuck in 'non-free' parts of Australia stuck like you.

Chinese-owned John Holland, Citylink and the VIC government still haven't worked out what to do with the contaminated soil from the Westgate Tunnel project: They've tried dumping it in safe Labor seats at Bulla, Bacchus Marsh and Ravenhall - but those pesky locals keep holding the whole damn thing up with their legal action (how dare they not want toxic soil from Melbourne dumped in their backyard!).

Never-mind, it's only 3 years behind schedule and $3 billion over budget. Another triumph of the wonderful, frugal management from the Andrews government.
