Article: Tuckey refuses to be gracious in defeat

This is the Tuckey we'll remember. Defiant even after the end.

Wilson Tuckey has spoken publicly for the first time since losing the West Australian seat of O'Connor to Nationals MP Tony Crook at the federal election.

Mr Tuckey held a press conference outside his home where a hand-made sign read: "Where's da money, Mr Crook?"

The veteran politician received the most primary votes in the electorate but lost out on preferences.

After 30 years in politics Mr Tuckey gave a lengthy speech about his time in office but noticeably absent was congratulations for his successor.
