Nick Xenophon Threatens To Sue Steven Marshall Over “Big Fat Lie”

Feb 12, 2018


SA Best leader Nick Xenophon has threatened opposition leader Steven Marshall with legal action.

On Monday Mr Marshall claimed Mr Xenophon had “clearly done a deal and he wants to back Labor back into government”.

“When you look at the number of seats he is running in -- it is 18 or 19 in Liberal seats and barely 10 Labor seats.

“There is no doubt Nick Xenophon is doing everything he can to help Jay Weatherill and Tom Koutsantonis stay in power.”

Responding on Twitter Mr Xenophon said claims of a deal were a “BIG FAT LIE”. And he later told The Advertiser he would take legal action if necessary.

“If he repeats it, I’ll have no choice but to take legal action.”
