The Premier asked John Quigley to join the Liberal party less than two months ago.

John Quigley has revealed that Colin Barnett try to recruit him to the Liberal party 8 weeks ago. Mr Quigley made the revelation to Paul Murray while responding to the attack Mr Barnett made on his character during last weekend's Liberal party conference.

  • There is no way Porter would ever be PM of the Libs. Right now he is a medium fish in a small pond, but when he gets to Canberra he wil be a very small fish in a very big pond. Don't forget that this is the guy who said that he wouldn't let the WA Libs determine his career direction. I am sure that his electorate is happy knowing that they elected him into a career.

  • Mr Quigley was on the right track when he was using his brains, skill and integrity to actually make a difference in western australia for real western australian people, not just those whom can afford to pay upwards of 25 grand to get a look in. now, unfortunately, he has been censored by the empty vessels and fence sitters of the wa labor party who don't appear to have an original thought or opinion on anything. If Quigley must insist on reducing himself to tit for tat with a megalomaniac (what's that they say about arguing with an idiot?) then he's wasting his time and energy and maybe he should stay 'off with the fairies' because he'll just play right into barnett's hands. i won't be voting for a police state but it's pretty bloody difficult to vote for a bunch of nobodies whom appear overdosed on prosac and valium or...say it aint so John...'off with the fairies'.

  • I wish these polititions stop slinging each other off as it gets worse when the elections are looming. The people will vote who they want to vote for and when you listen to childish like comments all the time it makes you think what kind of people are running the country. I thought Collin Barnett had more calibre than that.
