Poor old Tony Abbot can’t do anything right in the eyes of these Red headed Amazon women. Recently of course he has incurred the wrath of the Prime Minister, who playing the sex card, called him a misogynist. How low can you go? Not to be outdone the Tasmanian Premier, Lara Giddings back in the year 2007 (then a Minister in the State government) gave the then Federal Shadow Health Leader, Tony Abbott, an aggressive ear bashing. All has been revealed by a former staffer of Abbott, Terry Barnes. According to Mr Barnes the whole episode was “exceedingly unpleasant.”
The attack from Lara Giddings came during a meeting about the takeover of the Mersey Hospital in the north west of Tasmania. Mr Barnes reported that “For the best part of an hour the diminutive Giddings berated and harangued Abbott in an aggressive one-sided tirade.” Incredibly he even adds that at one point, Giddings reached across the table as it to “throttle him”. Strong words indeed. Giddings on the other hand, said that this is all nonsense and that Mr Abbott’s response was “sexist” – and why was it sexist? (Whatever that manufactured slur word means!) because Mr Abbott said to Giddings that she had given him a “schoolmarmish-type lecture” which she claimed to be “frankly a sexist remark”.
Further to Mr Barnes’ account, “Mr Abbott was utterly taken back by Gidding’s ferocity; he seemed uncertain about how to respond and where to look as her verbal assault continued. And Giddings response to that? “I make no apologies for telling Tony Abbott in blunt terms his proposal was nothing but a desperate attempt to hold on to a marginal seat.” The fact is, these Amazons who want to be equal to men, always play the sex card when they choose to. It would laughable if it was not so pathetic. Mr Abbot gave the reason why he did not respond just as aggressively was because “I was just brought up that way”. – mind you – he did not hold the same values when he attacked Pauline Hanson.
In the last Tasmanian Report I wrote that the homosexual marriage Bill put before the Upper House (Legislative Council) in Tasmania had failed. Like the good sports they are, the proponents of the Bill are calling for a select committee to look into the constitutional concerns surrounding any such legislation. Rodney Croome, leader of the Tasmanian Gay and Lesbian Rights Group said of the Legislative Council that “The proper role of the Legislative Council is as a house of review not a house of obstruction”. The man is contradicting himself here as he clutches at straws like a spoilt kid who has not got his own way.
By reviewing the rejected Bill, the Legislative Council has done its job. According to Croome, the House is “obstructing” – no, Mr Croome, read my lips, “It did its job – it reviewed the Bill and found it legally unconstitutional”. Even the Federal Attorney-General, (who would have to be the worse Attorney-General in the nation’s history), Nicola Roxton, who was in Hobart recently would not be drawn into the argument. Guy Barnett (ex Senator) and spokesman for the Save Marriage Coalition said that further inquiry into the Bill was unwarranted.
