Opposition Leader caught out lying once again

NSW Opposition Leader Michael Daley has been caught lying about his fiery exchange with Alan Jones… again!

During the explosive interview on Tuesday, he claimed the SCG Trust had ripped out fire sprinklers in Allianz Stadium “under cover of darkness”.

The allegation turned out to be false, with Chairman Tony Shepherd insisting there were never any fire sprinklers put in when the stadium was built.

But instead of admitting he was wrong, Mr Daley has put his foot in it even further.

On ABC Radio today, the Labor leader claimed he was talking about the sprinklers that water the grass on the playing surface, not the fire sprinklers.

But Ben Fordham reveals the field sprinklers were never removed either. In fact, they’re still on the surface right now!

“That is one of the worst cover-ups I’ve ever heard,” says Ben.

“How many lies can one man tell in one week?”

Premier Gladys Berejiklian says Mr Daley has a problem telling the truth.

“In public life it’s important to be honest with the community… clearly he’s demonstrated his capacity not to be able to do that.”

It’s currently unclear whether an injunction preventing “hard demolition” of the stadium remains in place.

Ben grilled the Premier about whether it would be torn down before the election but Ms Berejiklian refused to confirm details.

“As soon as the court action concludes we’ll get that schedule from the contractors.”
