GONER: Councillor forced to leave bank job after email race jibes exposed

peterallan Whitehorse councillor Peter Allan has quit his job at the National Australia Bank following revelations that he engaged in racial vilification via email.

The controversial councillor described “Yanks and Chinese” as being a “race” with a “paranoid nature” from a NAB email account.

Andrew Landeryou’s blog exposed Allan’s email that VEXNEWS understands was also investigated by NAB human resources as it was sent from his bank email.

Allan has been a member of multiple political parties although is considered by Whitehorse insiders to have views more in keeping with extreme right ultra-nationalism.

VEXNEWS has obtained a copy of the email he sent today to Whitehorse colleagues explaining his absence from the bank.

Hi Councillors,
Just to let you know that I have left work, so no need to email or ring there. It was a tough decision but better for me personally.  See you around the traps.
Pete

Allan is believed to face an uphill battle for re-election to the Whitehorse council.

  1. Let us all hope he is smart enough to not run for Council

  2. Is it the National Australia Bank’s policy to use its resources to promote political racist debates? I for one will not be banking with the NAB if this is is where they spend their profits from shareholders and depositors.

    Look forward to the banks response to this email which I am told was leaked to the OC by a concerned member of staff.

    I am pleased to say I was the first to raise this issue.

  3. It was leaked to the OC by one of Allan’s political opponents. At least he had a motive. to watch moron like you – who can’t even spell ‘Australia’ – patting yourself on the back is an unedifying spectacle indeed.

  4. Good morning Andrew. Company name extracts can be done from any Federal MP’s office. So all you need to do now is match the council receipt from the brothel Peter Allen attended to the address of the campany listed on the extract, and whala. Should get it in a few days.

  5. He has always been a nut job so it is no surprise. A bit unfair though to have a photo of him with Jesse Mcallum (not sure if spelt right). She wasn’t involved. Where are those sublime photoshop skills Andrew to edit out the innocent?

  6. Whitehorse ratepayers pay for Cr Peter Allen’s to go to the hookers on a council conference in the 1990′s. Now that’s a scoop!

  7. match the name of the company on the receipt (he put his claim in to council) to the name on the australian company register. it will come up as hookers. foi.

  8. Peter Allan from Whitehorse is almost as stupid as his niece Jacinta Allan and his nephew Lyle Allan. Hasn’t Lyle recently had problems with the EPA? You do not have very good breeding Jacinta. Neither do you Lyle.

  9. I don’t normally reply to comments critical of myself, but the one about Peter Allan, a former People Power member on the Whitehorse Council contains factual errors that ought to be corrected.

    The Whitehorse Peter Allan is not related to either Jacinta Allan or myself to the best of my knowledge.

    Regarding my problems with the EPA I am not at all happy with that organisation, but I will say no more about that in this comment.
