Noel Pearson denies he swore at Turnbull

Noel Pearson denies he swore at Turnbull
- Cape York leader Noel Pearson has slammed the ABC over a report alleging he called Malcolm Turnbull and indigenous MPs Ken Wyatt and Patrick Dodson “c..ts” during a fiery meeting in November.
According to the report, the exchange happened after a Referendum Council meeting at which the substantive details of what was to become last month’s Uluru Statement from the Heart were discussed.
This included the statement’s recommendation that an indigenous advisory body to parliament be enshrined in the Constitution, with doubts ­expressed as to the likely success of this measure at a referendum.
The ABC report alleges that in a separate meeting afterwards in the Prime Minister’s office, which The Australian has been told was attended by only the four men, Mr Pearson called Mr Turnbull a “white c..t” and Mr Wyatt and Senator Dodson “black c..ts”.
