    Yes, he said it jokingly, was complaining about not backing any winners at the gallops and he might have to have a bet at the red hots.

    Interesting spin on it Rick.

    Mr Pakula should have more faith in the new Vic Racing Tribunal and amendments to the Act.

    As far as integrity and Mr Pakula goes, he also being the Attorney General, VCAT could have viewed the industry as, for example, QCAT does. Other Civil and Administrative Tribunals believe the sport is bigger than the individual, not so VCAT.

    Wayne, he got the boot from Attorney General after the red shirts affair. He refused to co operate with police as did all other Labor politicians involved.

    Of course.
    Notwithstanding the red shirts affair, we'll have to rely on Jill and Martin to promote the sport is bigger than the individual.

    I can't say that it worried me. I know the meaning of red hots is not complimentary and that he is the Minister and that it has clearly upset many but in the above context I see it as jocular and no more than a slip of the tongue. I cannot think that anybody could claim that he meant to offend

    The offence industry is totally out of control if you are offended by that! Thanks for the post Gutwagon.

    No more than a Freudian slip of the tongue...I wonder if he followed the tip...the candyman beaten a head by G Douglas.

    Not much offends me but the fact that the racing minister thinks our industry is red hot really pissed me off.
    I have not seen any comment from Martin or Monteith, they must feel as if they are wasting their time trying to push integrity !

    Not quite sure how M Pakula coming out with that, whichever way he did, gets to ...Martin or Monteith, they must feel as if they are wasting their time trying to push integrity !

    Am thinking they might have a quiet, smart, diplomatic conversation to M Pakula.
