THE self-described nationalist brother of senior Liberal frontbencher Nick Wakeling joked about threatening to “bash” him if he didn’t axe the Safe Schools program.
Tim Wakeling calls himself the “former head gas controller” at Auschwitz and says he went to the “school of Holocaust denial” on his Facebook page.
Mr Wakeling regularly shares posts from the United Patriots Front and counts alleged far-Right terrorist Phillip Galea among his Facebook friends.
He has also been photographed at a UPF event alongside its leader, Blair Cottrell, who was last week found guilty of inciting contempt of Muslims for making a video of a mock beheading.
His Facebook profile picture is of Nazi Germany politician Rudolf Hess, one of Adolf Hitler’s right-hand men.
Tim Wakeling’s brother, Nick, is the former Victorian higher education minister and currently the state Opposition’s education spokesman.
When asked about his brother’s posts, the member for Ferntree Gully said: “I firmly reject the views and comments of my brother in the strongest possible way. Unfortunately, my brother and I have very different values and views.”
