Dinner a ‘bad look’ for Matthew Guy

A man who says he was at the Lobster Cave the same night Matthew Guy dined with an alleged mafia figure says there was nothing suspicious about their meeting.

Mark told Neil Mitchell he was at the restaurant with his wife when the opposition leader walked by and sat at another table.

“It just looked like mates having dinner,” he said.

Mark said the table had “about eight” people on it and was right next to the front window, in clear view of everyone else.

EARLIER: Matthew Guy has undermined his own political credibility by dining with an alleged mafia figure, says Melbourne Radio's Neil Mitchell.

The state opposition leader has admitted to having dinner with Tony Madafferi and other Liberal party figures at the Lobster Cave in Beaumaris earlier this year.

Mr Guy has since referred himself to anti-corruption watchdog, IBAC.

The 3AW Mornings host said it was a “very bad look” for Mr Guy, who he spoke with off-air on Tuesday.

“As a political leader, you’ve got to be careful of what you do and what you are seen to do,” Neil Mitchell said.

“He should not have gone.

“His office should have expected and demanded a guest list.

“This doesn’t prove that Matthew Guy has done anything wrong, but he must be more careful about who he meets and eats with.

“This undermines him, particularly when he campaigns so hard on law and order.”
