    Australia’s pathetic response to Liu Xiaobo’s death is an utter disgrace. NO ONE amongst our “so-called” political leaders stood up to support the huge bravery of this man. Where are all of you cowards hiding? As for Julie, she is and always has been a totally self-interested Foreign Minister, following on in the footsteps of Alexander Downer.

    “Does the Minister seriously expect the house to believe a Liberal donor who she knows well set up a company in the Minister’s name, the Julie Bishop Glorious Foundation, but never raised it with her on the many occasions that they met?”
    -Member for Burt

    Spoiler alert – she DID expect them to believe it
