Honestly what is going on here? Beyond disgusting!
You know those private school boys who sing songs on public transport about women being holes in the road. This is where the Liberal Party sources its members and aspiring MPs. And they get the dregs.

this story is full on

as we know it involves a young woman in a job for 3 weeks who was raped then bullied into keeping quiet by a pond of scum who really should be put against the wall.

the cover up is so extensive to the point that internet references to the rapist have been erased

but he has booked himself into the Sydney Nth Shore Hospital Psych Ward so nobody can get to him

cowards the lot of them

He must be well known to those that in the know as the women keep claiming it is the same person.
Different person. The above is a separate case where the female in question has come forward, given her name as well. Then I think there are 2 or 3 more anonymous ones who are accusing the same guy that Higgins is.

Higgins accused name isn't hard to find. BL are the initials.

The more right the party goes the further it gets from its core values. What women could possibly want to be involved with this party now? They need a complete clean out.
I thought the Porter report a few months ago was a hatchet job in a way but it appears that sort of behaviour is widespread and essentially condoned. What a bunch of frauds. And many call themselves Christians and preach
family values?
I bet some staffer from the PMO takes the fall.
I want to hear from some of the women in the liberal party (I know there’s not many) speak out against their colleagues.

The really depressing part of this is that despite this LNP government having all these issues as well as a litany of corrupt behaviours, if an election was held tomorrow they would almost certainly win.
I am not fully sure why that is but part of it has to be the sorry state of the opposition who imo have reduced themselves to a party that seems to believe in nothing.
Politics has been reduced to jingoism for some as well and no one plays that game better than the Libs.

after the rape and Ms Higgins was moved to W.A. , Michaelia Cash told her to "suck it up"

more info goes that the rapist held 4 jobs in 3 years at the LNP; one being with Brandis, one being with Dutton - 2 real charmers right there.. so they're moving him around for some reason ..

meanwhile .... 55% of the bushfire funds can't be traced, that's 1.6 billion dollars !

I am not sure the Labor stand for nothing, but even if they did I would rather a party that stands for nothing than the current bunch we have.

i wonder how many of those who will continue to vote for the Libs are men who say they would take matters into their own hands if their daughter was raped, or talk big words when a women's rape makes the front of the Hun.

if you care about women's safety and vote Liberal you are a hypocrite.

And we arrive back at the Internet Bill the Government is fighting against Facebook on behalf of News.

Christians (religious peeps of any persuasion) are the worst, it gives them an excuse to be *smile* people.

They are the masters of diversion Baloo and they are incredibly good at it
yes, there was a piece yesterday stating that the reason the PM's first covid jab looked a bit disorganised is because it was moved forward at the last minute. It was meant to be today but I guess there may have been reasons the PM wanted to shift focus to his jab.

BTW, noticed he was wearing, I think, an Aussie cricket top, with SCOMO on the back. Has anyone told him just how pathetic that looks?

That's like saying if you vote labour you endorse the likes of John Sekta's brand of union thuggery and intimidation? And condone his demeaning of women and domestic violence?

So you think any male that votes for the liberal party condones rape?

Hopefully those in the party that have ignored this behaviour are held accountable.
