John Lindsay, Durrumbul

I am sure that you remember Mr Simon Berger, the Woolworths public relations officer who dealt with the Mullumbimby community during the fight to stop the Woolworths store.

It appears that it was Simon Berger who donated a ‘chaff bag jacket’ to the Liberal Club dinner/meeting, (this refers to the chaff bag that Mr Jones intended for the purpose of putting Julia Gillard into and then dumping into the ocean).

This was the same meeting where Allan Jones made his extremely offensive comments re the prime minister’s deceased father.

The Woolworths organisation came forward to say that Mr Simon Berger was acting in a private capacity when the incident took place.
