Julia Gillard's Fiery Rant
Australian PM Julia Gillard slams opposition's sexism claims in fiery speech.

In a passionate speech to parliament, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard seized on Opposition Leader Tony Abbott's attempt to paint her as a misogynist, calling him a sexist and a hypocrite and bombarding him with a series of examples when she was "personally offended" by his comments and actions.

Re: Julia Gillard's Fiery Rant
Prime Minister Julia Gillard's spirited speech to parliament in which she called out Opposition Leader Tony Abbott's alleged sexist and misogynist views has become a global hit online.

Media outlets around the world have picked up on the PM’s remarks, labelling her a 'badass' for her 'epic speech'.

The Prime Minister used Tony Abbott's attempts to oust Peter Slipper as Speaker to turn the tables on Mr Abbott, launching a 15 minute tirade raking over his past statements about women...

Re: Julia Gillard's Fiery Rant
The irony is that the speech was the most hypocritical in Parliament's history because she was defending a proven sexist and misogynist.
A new low in ethical standards and moral principles that will be hard to beat.

"Embarrassing finale of a lost cause

IS it possible for a political party and a prime minister to have more egg on their collective faces than Labor and Julia Gillard do right now? Having fought to the last man (and woman) to defend his right to remain Speaker of the House of Representatives, Peter Slipper himself resigned last night.

The Greens and the independents who sided with the government to defend Slipper's right to retain the speakership should also be embarrassed.

We are in for an extremely brutal period in Australian politics between now and the next election if yesterday's question time was anything to go by. The opposition had sought to remove Slipper because of revelations about offensive text messages about women. It was a reasonable demand, but the government was more concerned about its numbers on the floor of the house than the credibility of the speakership.

The motion failed by the narrowest of margins, but not before Tony Abbott was directly accused of being a sexist and a misogynist himself. Not by an attack-dog minister mind you - by the Prime Minister herself.

It happened after the Opposition Leader had already engaged in a little rhetorical overreach of his own. He said that the government should have "died of shame": words eerily similar to Alan Jones's now infamous (and condemned) comments.

But rhetorical errors by Abbott pale into insignificance alongside the government's attempts to defend Slipper, especially on the back of the moral outrage they have expressed about Abbott's attitude to women. And especially once Slipper showed more decency by resigning than Labor was prepared to show by removing him. It was a sight to behold watching the conga-line of female Labor MPs vote to retain Slipper as Speaker after so many of them have condemned Abbott for causing offence to women.

Slipper sent text messages offensive to women. That has not been disputed. He had to go, to preserve the integrity of the chair.

Labor should have realised that fighting to retain Slipper as the official Speaker was never going to end well. As it turns out it could not have ended more badly."


Of course ALP fanbois who lack a sense of irony as well as any ethical or moral principles, just like their hero Julia, see this as something to celebrate.

Loved her speech... but can't stand her.
Abbott is is just as bad, if not worse.
Time to give them all the flipoff and do a donkey vote, as they insist we must vote.

Re: Julia Gillard's Fiery Rant
when I go to the polls to have my name ticked off so I don't cop a stupid fine,I then screw the ballot paper up into a ball and ask the scrutineers where the nearest rubbish bin is.

I do this for every election,federal or state and have done so ever since I have been old enough to vote and am now 60.

All politics make me want to vomit.

I reckon Peter Slipper must have the goods on someone important, no way would anyone else get a promotion to speaker when he was facing financial rorting charges and now sexual misconduct.
