Gillard again in question time is refusing to answer questions about the slush fund scandal. And, because of a hopeless speaker, she is getting away with it.
There’s only one reason Gillard refuses to answer: if she gives the correct answer she’s guilty at least of incompetence and unprofessional conduct; if she gives the answers she’d like us to believe, she’s guilty of misleading the House.
Whatever she says, it will not win her any support. She’s playing the schoolyard bitch, clawing into deputy opposition leader Julie Bishop. It’s a repulsive look and fair-minded women loath it. And that horrible fishmonger’s wife voice – fingernails on blackboards are symphonic in comparison.
