Nationals MP George Christensen is facing claims from a staff member of an adult entertainment bar in the Philippines that he was a regular at the venue.
The bar manager of the night spot, which identifies itself as an “adult entertainment service”, said Mr Christensen did not reveal he was a politician and alleged his “weakness was women”.
…A joint investigation by Nine News, The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald has been stymied because Mr Christensen has blocked the release of information about the Australian Federal Police probe into his frequent travels to the Philippines.
…Ms Lamsen, who said she had worked at the bar for six years, said: “He was always very good… He was a big spender”.
…”The weakness of George is women. He would usually give allowances to these people.
“He would keep his job a secret but now we know he’s a politician.”
…Mr Christensen, a committed Christian, says he met his now-wife April Asuncion while in the Philippines in 2017…an employee at the Ponytails bar.
I guess congratulations are in order.
He is also a former gold trader and economic commentator at The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, the ABC and Business Spectator. He is the co-author of The Great Crash of 2008 with Ross Garnaut and was the editor of the second Garnaut Climate Change Review.
