Australian Dot Com Mogul Thornley Joins Electric Car Venture
Evan Thornley -- whose decision on December 28 stunned the political establishment -- admitted he was approached to head electric car venture Better Place last June but denied any conflict of interest with his role as parliamentary secretary for innovation.
In an interview with The Australian yesterday, Mr Thornley said it was not certain he would enter the ministry and that leading Better Place was the better of two uncertain propositions.
"It was far from clear to me how this was going to play out," he said. "People can say something is happening and six hours later someone has talked to someone else and something else is happening."
