First some news about the Sarah Jane Parkinson case. You may remember that Parkinson was sent to prison in January for false rape allegations she made against Dan Jones. I made a video with Dan and Sixty Minutes did a whole programme on her outrageous attempt to destroy Dan and his family.
The latest development is that Parkinson has applied for early parole and has requested she is transferred to the NSW Parole Board for administration, which means she will be close to her boyfriend, the crooked NSW cop who helped with her vicious campaign.
At the time of the parole hearing on September 3 she will have served only 8 months of her two-year non-parole period. As a result of her lies, Dan spent four months in jail plus three months home arrest and the family spent over $300,000 on legal fees defending their son.
The ACT Department of Public Prosecution has written expressing concern about her parole application, noting she has a history of manipulating the system. But I hope many of you will help alert the public to what is happening here. Canberra people can help by writing to local newspapers, lobbying MPs, and ringing radio stations.
It’s worth trying to get the word out through social media. Perhaps also write to the ACT Attorney General, Gordon Ramsay – [email protected] – who claims publicly to be working with the Jones family regarding compensation for wrongful imprisonment but fails to respond to any of their correspondence.
The Jones family has legal help to pursue Dan’s case for compensation, but no decision has yet been made in relation to the ex-gratia payment from the ACT Government.
Campus Tour – next stop UNSW
Finally, we are getting organised for my next campus talk – this time at the University of NSW. The Conservative Club, which is hosting me, has applied for a room for the event but the University seems to be stalling, as is par for the course with most of my campus talks. I am sure they are just hoping the whole thing will just go away if they delay the process long enough!
Anyway, we have put off the event, from late July probably until mid-September, so we can use media pressure to ensure this actually happens. In the meantime, we are advertising the event as “coming soon” – just to get the word out about what I am trying to do speaking on campuses. See the flyer below.
I hope some Sydneysiders will join us. We are going to need people to video any protests – it looks as if the activists are determined to try to make their presence felt. I’ll send through a PDF of the flyer when we have full details for you to circulate.
Battle with radio announcer over suicide prevention.
We’ve decided to put out a video of a radio interview I did last week, with Merrick Watts on 2GB, who decided to parade his feminist credentials by having a go at me over my criticism of the government’s announcement of a female National Suicide Officer. I nearly lost it over his inane virtue-signalling comments and wasn’t very happy with myself afterwards but many people have said it was most entertaining so we’re sharing that this week. Hope you enjoy it. Please promote it.
