Ben ‘Dobbo’ Dobbin has revealed on The Rush Hour with Luke, Dobbo & Margaux Parker (Triple M Brisbane & Gold 92.5) that Peter Dutton approached him earlier in the year with a surprising proposition.
According to Dobbo, the event took place back in June when Dobbo was covering State of Origin Game One in Melbourne.
Dobbo says he received an invitation to have a drink with the Member for Dickson and the then, Minister for Home Affairs, who was staying at the same hotel in Melbourne.
At 10:30pm that night, in the hotel bar, Dobbo says he was asked an unexpected question. ‘Have you ever considered a career in politics?’
