Andrew: Mr Highriser, you have intimated in the past that ex Planning Minister Madden might not be of such good character. Could you respond?
Mr Highriser: I can respond, but let me assure you, I have never impugned Justin Madden's character, honesty, incorruptibility or his basic decency as a human being. He made courageous decisions for the right reasons and benefit of our metropolis and state, and I am terribly sad that he is being judged and pilloried by so many, including the merciless media. Now let the poor defenceless man alone and me too as I am busy fund raising for a chappie who has difficulty hearing when more than one person is talking. How much is a hearing aid then?
