Katter made the revelation to Chaser Intern Lachlan Hodson and fellow university student Jono Wakeley

The Chaser Report podcast has revealed that Bob Katter MP has never formally pledged allegiance to the crown.

In an exclusive phone call with Chaser Intern Lachlan Hodson and fellow university student Jono Wakeley, Katter shared his thoughts on the pledge of allegiance all government members sign before joining parliament.

Katter said: “Do you seriously think I’m gonna sign that document?… I write ‘No’ on it, and no one knows!

“I’m getting so old now I can probably reveal that,” Katter added.

Should Katter be telling the truth, this would mean the longstanding Member for Kennedy’s decades in parliament would come under scrutiny for breach of Section 42 of the Australian Constitution.

On the legitimacy of Katter’s statement Lachlan admitted: “Beats me if it’s true or not. I interviewed Bob for two hours and know less about him now than when I started.”

The impacts and potential effects of this reveal from Katter are discussed exclusively on The Chaser Report today, with keen input from Marque Lawyer’s Michael Bradley.
The episode is now available on The Chaser Report.
This comes after The Chaser Report podcast adopted a live format show in June and recorded in front of an audience at the Harold Park Hotel, Glebe in Sydney’s inner west.
The show, dubbed The Chaser Report – Live! was commissioned for an initial run of four episodes.

As before, the podcast will be hosted by Charles Firth and Dom Knight, and will feature appearances from a range of the other old original Chaser team, such as Craig Reucassel, Chris Taylor, Chas Licciardello, and Andrew Hansen, as well as younger, better-looking, funnier comedians from around Australia, including the Chaser interns.
The Chaser Report also launched a premium episode of its podcast, released on Fridays.
The first season will be called Drunk Q&A, and it will only be available to the most discerning (ie paying) listeners.
