Melissa Price and Amanda Stoker to cabinet and Michaelia Cash to AG - this means there will be no progress on social issues because just because they are women, doesn’t mean they have a soul 🤬🤬🤬🤬

Because Liberal women who speak out on women's issues are considered toxic to the brand. Look at Julie Bishop famously claiming that she didn't find the label of 'feminist' useful.

"He also announced a new cabinet taskforce on women’s equality, safety, economic security, health and wellbeing. The taskforce will be co-chaired by Mr Morrison and the Minister for Women, Marise Payne, and will include all women from the ministry as well as Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and Finance Minister Simon Birmingham."


Oooh a task force. Bet they do something really useful like produce a report that will be released just before a public holiday weekend and out of a list of 100 odd recommendations 2 may actually be enacted.

I heard a quick sound bite of SM on the radio earlier. I think he needs a better writer as I’m sure I heard him say something about learning to live with women, my first thought WTF are we covid?

Oh for gods sake. Can’t these guys keep their private lives separate to their work lives?? I know question time is boring, but take up knitting or something. Play Tetris.

Oh, and don’t assault women. Simples. Although that’s going to be a hard one to prove due to the woman’s occupation. Poor thing, it would be a hard job to do and also protect yourself.

So pleased to have someone who called a rape victim ‘lying cow’ in charge of a program for some of the county’s most vulnerable.
The whole thing is a mess.

What I'd like to know is why a woman making a bad joke is front page news, but men behaving like depraved predators was covered up for years...and is STILL attempting to be covered up. This is another example of double standards. Why is something that was said in a closed door meeting *instantly* leaked?

This perfectly distills my absolute fury at the LNP and Murdoch press, and utter bewilderment at my fellow voters making noises about politics not mattering or like whatever. Fuck yourself, everything could be so much better for everyone if you only pulled your head out of your arse.

Laming. So now we're up to 3 different types of criminal activity. We have the stalking, then we have the upskirting and now we have blatant breaches of AEC rules for political advertising.

There will of course be no consequence because as we've seen, the law does not apply to white men with money and power. Who would have ever thought it was those in wealthy suburbs who have to live in virtual police "no go" zones where the rule of law doesn't apply? But here we are.

It's so depressing, how did we go from the politicians couldn't say the wrong thing without change (well maybe not that much) to know nothing seems to hurt them.

I am hoping the 90 % anger I see how there is enough to get rid of them at election!

Argh, vaccines. Anyone under 50, it’s now recommended they don’t get the AZ vaccine.
This is going to really really lengthen the vaccination process since we cant make the other ones here.
Annoying.
