THE CASE OF JAMES ASHBY VERSUS PETER SLIPPER transfixed a nation, saw daily tabloid headlines and almost brought down a Government.

A former DJ with a criminal record against the Speaker of the House, in a tale that included skulduggery, sex and crime, as well as a mountain of malice.

Who was plotting in the background to try to bring down the Speaker and, through him, the teetering Gillard Government.

Find out about the former Californian iron woman, the former Howard Government minister with designs on Slipper’s seat. What was the involvement of Julie Bishop, Joe Hockey and Tony Abbott? Who is Jackie?

After a two-year long investigation, private investigator Ross Jones presents the results of the Ashbygate Trust investigation.
