No sign of Peter Slipper on Sunshine Coast despite victory

THERE  has been no sign of former speaker Peter Slipper at his Sunshine Coast home.

Mr Slipper was widely tipped to have returned to Queensland on Tuesday after a Federal Court judge threw out a sexual harassment case brought against the Member for Fisher by a former staffer, James Ashby.

Media spent much of Tuesday outside Mr Slipper's Buderim home which is guarded by a metal gate with a printed out sign reading "NO ENTRY TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED" attached with plastic ties.

Mr Slipper has lived at the address for most of the almost two decades he has represented the Fisher electorate, but the sign was only added after April when news of the sexual harassment suit broke.

Junk mail sits on the median strip outside the home's gate and unlike their neighbours, the Slippers have not placed their recycling bin out for collection.
