Gillard’s anti-misogyny speech 

John Wallace writes: Re. “Crikey says: why Gillard both won and lost yesterday” (editorial, yesterday). You write that Julia Gillard “offered this speech in the context of defending a man for gross s-xism” (Slipper), but there is nothing in her speech to support this conclusion. She indicated clearly her repugnance over Slipper’s texts and that the decision to oppose the opposition motion to sack the speaker was based on process. This is not “defending a man for gross s-xism”!

    @ John Taylor, hear hear. At the time I couldn’t believe the PM allowed the Parr0t such a liberty. Just imagine him trying it on with JW H0ward – or Keating or Hawke. That would’ve made memorable radio.

    We teach others how to treat us – and unfortunately Gillard did. It was a lesson in which the insolent perpetrator revelled.

    Zut she was on a hiding to nothing. If she rips into him he goes straight for a lawyer, and if she is compliant, he lifts his leg, marks the spot and keeps dribbling ad infinitum.Either way, he was going to dribble and he still is. One way or the other.
