The James Ashby Conspiracy

Ashbygate

Independent Australia – through managing editor David Donovan, Vince O’Grady, Ross Jones and many others – has spent hundreds of hours of investigating and researching the James Ashby / Peter Slipper scandal — a covert political conspiracy by the Coalition to bring down the Parliamentary Speaker, Peter Slipper, and through him the Federal Government of Australia.

This dedicated Ashbygate page will be updated as new information comes to light and more articles are published.

The page is arranged in reverse chronological order — meaning the oldest stories will be found at the bottom of the page.
