Anti-development Lefties go on the offensive:
West Australian Aboriginal MP Carol Martin says she'll sue the people who put out newsletters labelling her a "coconut"', saying the racial slur was the worst ever directed at her.And so it is that the "worst" slurs ever directed at an Aboriginal woman come from the Left.
Newsletters have been circulated in Broome vilifying Aboriginal traditional landowners who support Woodside Petroleum's $30 billion liquefied natural gas hub.
The newsletters label Aboriginal leaders as "toxic coconuts'' and "Woodside's money hungry coconuts'', naming Kimberley Land Council chief executive Nolan Hunter, former chief Wayne Bergmann and Ms Martin.
Ms Martin, who represents the Kimberley region in state parliament, said she knew the people behind the campaign and intended to take legal action.
