Albanese fans fire on airport chairman row

FOUR letters is all it took to sum up Labor MP Anthony Albanese's thoughts about the retirement of Sydney Airport Corporation Chairman Max Moore-Wilton.   

Good.   

The Federal MP sent out a formal media release on the subject.   

In 2013, Mr Albanese used parliamentary privilege to accuse Mr Moore-Wilton of a conflict of interest in his role as the chairman of Sydney Airports. 

Mr Moore-Wilton threatened to sue Mr Albanese if he repeated that statement outside of Parliament.

He also called Albanese a "grub" and "factional hack".   

A spokesman for Mr Albanese confirmed the media release is "genuine" and "exactly what he thinks" about Moore-Wilton's retirement.
