13% should get a seat – Singo

Staff Writer

John Singleton has come out and supported Gina Rinehart's move for board representation at Fairfax Media, controller of the Fairfax Radio Network.

When asked if Rinehart should be offered a board seat, Singleton commented; 

"Fucking oath, if someone owns 13 per cent of the joint they're probably going to want to make money out of it"

"I would think the Roger Corbett (Fairfax Chairman) I know would think someone with 13 per cent should be on the board. I would be staggered if he was against it"

When asked by the SMH who he would support in a battle between Rinehart and Corbett , Singleton said;

''Roger's a friend of mine and I admire what he did with Woolworths, if you had to run Woolworths, I'd have Roger as one, Gina nowhere. If I had to make money out of Fairfax? In business they're both really good business people – as far as Fairfax, I think Roger has [only a small number of shares], Gina has 13 per cent, I'd back Gina.''
