Blackmores millionaire defends besieged Australia Post boss with her career in tatters

blackmores millionaire defends besieged australia post boss with her career in tatters

The multi-millionaire behind the Blackmores healthcare empire has defended Australia Post boss Christine Holgate after she was castigated for spending company cash on expensive watches.

Ms Holgate admitted spending $12,000 on four Cartier watches as a reward for four executives, but it was later revealed the true figure was closer to $20,000. 

Marcus Blackmore, whose 23 per cent stake in Blackmores is worth more than $320million, believes the besieged boss should be issued an apology.

‘You wouldn’t do this (treatment) to your dog … she might have been out of line but don’t crucify her, for God’s sake,’ he told The Australian.

‘I saw what it did to her, she was crying for days, she was devastated. It was awful.’

Ms Holgate, who has been temporarily stood down on full pay pending an investigation into the spending of company credit cards at Australia Post in recent years, worked for Blackmores as its chief executive before moving on in 2017. 

During her near decade-long tenure with Blakmores, company share prices rose significantly as the company capitalised on a consumer boom in China. 

Mr Blackmore also said there had been a significant ‘leadership gap’ at the ­company following Ms Holgate’s departure. 

‘Quite honestly I think the whole thing was bloody disgusting, the way she was treated,’ he said.

‘It was four watches, for God’s sake. Women like Cartier watches. She likes watches, she wanted to give people something memorable.’

He went onto state that ‘some women are showy’ and ‘most people can’t afford it, so that’s why it (watch) is a meaningful gift.’   

Mr Blackmore believes his former protege is unlikely to keep her job at the helm of Australia Post after damning comments from Prime Minister Scott Morrison about the scandal.  

‘I am not so concerned about her job, I am more concerned about her reputation,’ he said.

nrl bans the national anthem from state of origin

The NRL has banned the singing of Advanced Australia Fair at the upcoming State of Origin series.

The controversial decision, which was announced on Thursday, comes just a year after Indigenous players refused to sing the national anthem.

The independent commission made the call ahead of the start of the series, which begins in Adelaide on Wednesday night.

This will be the first time in 40 years the anthem will not be played before the kick-off.

NRL officials told the Daily Telegraph the anthem will remain for grand finals and Test matches. 

NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said the national anthem would be reserved for Test matches, grand final and ANZAC Day.

‘State of Origin is about the tribalism of the two states, it’s Australia’s biggest sporting rivalry. When NSW and Queensland run out we want that tension to erupt immediately,’ he said.

‘The game remains committed to our anthem. You need to look no further than last weekend’s grand final.’ 

State of Origin stars have stayed true to their word and snubbed the pre-game national anthem, amid calls to change one word of Advance Australia Fair

The anthem was a major issue during last year’s series after Blues stars Latrell Mitchell, Cody Walker and Josh Addo-Carr refused to sing the anthem in protest. 

The protest was part of a push to change the lyric in Advance Australia Fair frfom ‘young’ to ‘strong’ amid criticism the anthem does not represent the 60,000-year history of indigenous Australians.

Mosman swim teacher Kyle Daniels trial continues despite lost evidence

mosman swim teacher kyle daniels trial continues despite lost evidence

Crucial CCTV footage in the case of a swim teacher who allegedly sexually assaulted nine young girls has been lost after the files became corrupted, a court has heard.

Kyle James Henk Daniels, 22, is facing a five-week trial over 26 charges relating to the alleged sexual assault of nine girls aged between six and 11 at Mosman Swim Centre, on Sydney’s lower north shore.

The jury heard the opening address from Crown Prosecutor Karl Prince on Thursday in which he outlined the case against Daniels.

Mr Prince told Downing Centre District Court that some vital footage from CCTV five cameras overlooking the pool had been lost because the files ‘became corrupted’.

He maintained however that ‘there was nothing accidental or clumsy about’ Daniels’ actions and alleged the young coach had a ‘sexual interest’ in ‘female swim students aged between five and 10.’

Mr Prince told the court that when police requested the Mosman Swim Centre hand over CCTV footage of Daniels’ lesson with one of the alleged victims, they received only ‘portions’.

‘There are five cameras pointed at the pool and continuously recording. After police became aware of the complaints, a request was sent to the swim centre for all of the CCTV from the 9th of February and 14th of February [2019],’ Mr Prince told the court.

‘When they [police] requested the CCTV all they received was portions from both days.

‘We don’t have CCTV footage of the lessons where the alleged assault occurred.’

Mr Prince explained that part of this had to do with the ‘files becoming corrupted’.

Daniels’ defence barrister Leslie Nicholls also gave his opening on Thursday morning and identified for the jury what he called ‘some of the issues’ with the Crown case.

Mr Nicholls told the jury that one of the young alleged victims was already aware when interviewed by police of CCTV that related to his alleged offences.

He claimed that the influence of the police officer in charge of the case and media had impacted their evidence and the overall case against Daniels.

At the time of one of the alleged offences by Daniels, Mr Nicholls said the girl’s father was sitting just ‘one to two metres away’ on the pool deck.

The court heard that after Daniels’ arrest was publicised in the media, the parents of one girl at the swim school sat her down and asked ‘if anything had ever happened [to her]?’.

The girl and her brother, who also took lessons at the swim centre, said ‘no’, but a few weeks later while out with her father she looked uncomfortable and he quizzed her again.

‘She was in the car and her father asked her if anything was bugging her. She said “it was a bit weird”,’ Mr Prince told the court. 

Crown Prosecutor Karl Prince told the court that when police requested the Mosman Swim Centre hand over CCTV footage of Daniels' lesson with one of the alleged victims, they received only 'portions' (Daniels is pictured leaving Downing Centre District Court with his parents James and Janine on Tuesday)

‘She told her mother that during a lesson he [Daniels] put his fingers inside her swimmers.’ 

Mr Prince told the court that the accounts of all the young girls were consistent when it came to what Daniels had allegedly done to them. 

‘The allegations are so similar in what they allege against the accused that it makes it more likely that each is telling the truth,’ he said. 

‘The Crown case is that there is simply no coincidence. Instead, the only explanation is that the accused acted in a similar way to each of the complainants and therefore what each of the complainants is saying is true.

‘The Crown case is the accused has a tendency to have a particular state of mind – that state of mind is a sexual interest in female swim school students between five and 10 years old.

‘[And that] he opportunistically engaged in sexual conduct with female swim school students between five and 10 while he is teaching those students and they are under his care and authority.’ 

The trial continues before Judge Kara Shead.
