peta's musings stink...


Peta’s musings (above) in the Sunday Telegraph (21/3/2021) ring hollow… She was in charge of keeping the most misogynist Prime Minister of Australia ever, on the throne: Tony AbbottHer pedigree is rightwing and that’s it. For her, anything left of Genghis Khan is a commie plot of weeds. 

Since John Howard, PM — followed by the massive attacks from the entire media and the rightwing nuts on Julia Gillard PM, the rise of Tony Abbott who promised to stick to his promises like a turd on a window-pane while lying through his teeth, the flip-flops of Turnbull who was unable to win a game of blancmange in his nasty party and the rise of Scotty from marketing — Australia has been extremely BADLY served on all issues, including women’s rights. The luminaries from the Liberal (CONservative) nasty party of which Peta is a loud mouth-piece have been (and still are) appalling. She is not “hypocritical” because she firmly believes in the shit she writes. 

That the Scomo government has to go is a given. Too much crap has been coming down on us from this “marketing” sewer like the present record rain. The list of undemocratic fiddles from the Liberal (CONservative) party is 250 times longer than the list of capital sins...

And Peta has the goad to blame the women for not meeting with Scott Morrison in his office... This stinks as everyone knows (everyone should) that the place of meeting is important. Meet the king in the throne-room and you become subservient and the meeting becomes undemocratic. The women wanted to avoid that. 


Ghosting and gaslighting from the PM down won’t stop us shattering the silence

Dunghutti woman Marie Barbaric broke her silence at Sydney’s March 4 Justice last week. Until then she hadn’t spoken of the shame and humiliation she carried in her heart.

The shame that comes of being one of Australia’s Stolen Generations, of being an abused teenager, of being sold by her foster father for $20,000, while the government stayed silent.

That’s the sound of institutional abuse. Silence.

Speaking out was difficult, but when Barbaric did she felt the sisterhood’s support. I felt the same when I broke my silence at the Flesh After Fifty Festival, the weekend before.

There is nothing like a supportive crowd of women. You’re held in an invincible current flowing in the right direction.

Until you’re not.

Twitter is a nasty place. After my column in The New Daily last week I read angry tweets from women enraged because I will not speak my rapist’s name. They said I’m not courageous enough, and they must speak this truth.

They are right. We must always speak our truth. And I was glad to hear theirs. I had kept my silence until I was good and strong and ready to listen to the opinion of others.

But these opinions remind me how easily we get distracted from the war we dearly need to win.

In the sixties, radical separatist feminists claimed that women who slept with men perpetuated patriarchy. Enter stage right, the ‘I Am Not a Feminist, But …’ team. The fight was on.

I stood in the centre, a slightly lesser feminist since I longed to lie with the enemy.

Truth is, feminism is only about equal rights for women, especially equal rights over their bodies.

It’s about her right to sleep with who she wants. It’s about her right not to be raped. And, her right to a legal system that will protect her.

Our legal system doesn’t protect any woman yet. That’s what we’re fighting for. That’s why I won’t speak his name. Doing so won’t protect me.

In Canberra Brittany Higgins described the dangers of speaking out. Her story exposed the gaslighting and ghosting that happens when you do. Higgins reminded us to beware. ‘‘Set boundaries for yourself and be ruthless in your defence of them’’, she said.

festering scomo government...

The embattled federal government’s stumbling responses to mounting sexual assault scandals will face further intense scrutiny this week, with ministers, bureaucrats and police to be grilled in Parliament House.

First off the rank on Monday morning: The Australian Federal Police and government agencies administering federal Parliament will be questioned over what they knew about Brittany Higgins’ rape allegations, and what they did (or didn’t) do in response.

Senate estimates are a treasured tradition in federal politics, giving senators the rare chance to quiz department bigwigs, face to face.

The opposition – whether Liberal or Labor – probes issues of government waste, profligacy or scandal, using the power of Parliament to compel answers that aren’t voluntarily offered.

But with so many questions still swirling about how the government responded to sexual assault issues, this week’s hearings take on new significance.

Monday morning will see the AFP front the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee.

Federal police have been foremost in the response to recent scandals, from speaking with Ms Higgins in 2019 and making first inquiries, then taking her latest statement weeks ago.

They also received the anonymous dossier outlining allegations of rape against Attorney-General Christian Porter, and they warned Prime Minister Scott Morrison of politicians’ responsibility to refer complaints to authorities.

Most recently, reported the AFP did not give NSW Police the dossier against Mr Porter before the state authorities closed their case.

Mr Porter denies the allegations.

Labor is expected to probe the AFP’s actions in responding to the cases of Ms Higgins and Mr Porter, and their direct approaches to politicians.

While the AFP takes questions, just metres away in Parliament House the Finance and Public Administration Committee will host the departments of the Senate and Parliamentary Services.

Big question marks linger over how Ms Higgins’ case was handled from the start, from security signing her and the alleged rapist into Parliament House late at night, and allegedly unlocking the door of Senator Linda Reynolds’ office, through to requests for CCTV footage and internal reviews after the shocking allegations.

Soon after, the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet will front that committee.

Mr Morrison said last week his department secretary Phil Gaetjens will appear, which Labor sources say is a break from his usual actions, in sending other staff to answer Senate questions.

“I have no doubt the Opposition will be able to ask questions of him in Senate estimates,” the PM said last week.

Mr Gaetjens, former chief of staff to Mr Morrison, will be grilled by Labor on his internal report into what the PM’s office knew about the allegations by Ms Higgins, and when.

Mr Morrison claims he first heard the story when it was published online, and his office only heard three days earlier through media requests – a timeline Labor leader Anthony Albanese said “doesn’t seem plausible”, and former PM Malcolm Turnbull called “inconceivable”.

The PM, shrugging off questions about Mr Gaetjens’ report, said estimates was “the appropriate place those matters can be raised”.

On Tuesday, the blowtorch may be further applied to Mr Porter, when his department faces the legal committee.

He has started defamation action against the ABC over its reporting on him and plans to return to Parliament next week –– albeit with fewer duties (to avoid conflicts of interest).

Labor’s Kristina Keneally, who will feature prominently in estimates questioning, dialled up the heat on Sunday.

She slammed the fact Mr Porter will receive “a full-time salary, but doing part-time work”.

“The question as to whether or not Christian Porter remains a fit and proper person is a question for the Prime Minister. The question of whether or not Linda Reynolds, who called an alleged rape victim a ‘lying cow’ remains a fit and proper person, is one that sits with the Prime Minister,” Senator Keneally said.

This is all before we even get to the Defence portfolio, held by the absent Senator Reynolds.

On Wednesday, that department will face questions about the government’s beleaguered $90 billion submarines contract and the Brereton report into war crimes in Afghanistan.

Again, expect questions over what bureaucrats knew of Ms Higgins’ allegations of events inside Senator Reynolds’ secure office in 2019.

Senator Reynolds will not appear. She’s on leave until April, but some in Labor had strategised briefly about asking for Defence’s estimates to be postponed until she could appear.

This is all to say, the week will again be dominated by talk of culture and secrecy in Parliament.

Hearings will also delve into grants programs, vaccines, COVID recovery, JobSeeker and JobKeeper, businesses still bleeding as economic supports end, plus infrastructure and energy and climate.

But it will be another week where details of the festering culture within the walls of Parliament again take centre stage.

her secrets come into the open...

Sky News host Peta Credlin has claimed former Liberal staff members hosted “gay orgies” at Parliament House and that she had tried to get rid of the man who has since filmed himself masturbating on a minister’s desk.

The former chief of staff to former Prime Minister Tony Abbott said she also knew the identities of three staffers who performed solo sex acts on desks of female MPs.

“The former minister who is alleged to have male prostitutes delivered to Parliament House … the former minister? I see you too,” she said in remarks delivered to Sky News on Wednesday night.

Credlin said she had previously fired one employee who since then has reportedly captured himself committing a solo sex act on the desk of the female politician he worked for.

Video of the man was leaked to the media after he shared it with other staffers on a Facebook Messenger group.

“He never forgave me for it … but you never heard my side of it did you?” Ms Credlin said.

While in the Leader of the Opposition’s office, she said she also “had reason to recommend” the sacking of another staff member for “lying and disloyalty”.

“When the MP cleaned out the former staffer’s desk, and the computer, that MP uncovered evidence that for many months, that staffer had regularly met with other men during the middle of the day – while the MP was in Question Time – for orgies in political offices,” she said.

“Labor staffers, not just this Coalition man, and a number of others too.”

The bombshell claims come as women across Australia continue to raise reports of inappropriate behaviour with links to politics.

Tweet from @1Swinging_Voter

Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he wants to improve the treatment of women.

“What I must do first is demonstrate that I am listening and that I am understanding the pain that so many Australian women are feeling,” he told parliament on Wednesday.

Mr Morrison has taken on personal responsibility for responding to a national inquiry into sexual harassment in the workplace, which has been gathering dust for more than a year.

The prime minister said his response would be released before the federal budget in May.

He also plans to raise sexual harassment laws with state and territory leaders at the next meeting of national cabinet.

The ongoing reports of poor behaviour come a week after March 4 Justice rallies were held across Australia.

Why is Peta coming out with this information now and why did she not use it to warn us all that the Kanbra parliament was like a brothel? My guess is that she did not want to embarrass her "Liberal" (CONservative) party which was paying for her breakfasts and keeping her eggs on ice in Tony Abbott's fridge...


There is a bit of mea culpa here and I hope that Peta will one day wake up to the reality that the Kanbra males MP and the Kanbra Scomo government are the bad boys... THEY ARE !
