Nicola Roxon thinks that she and her ALP mates can routinely and systematically lie about Tony Abbott and he’ll still be friendly.
Ms Roxon denied ever calling the opposition leader misogynistic, but insisted he had a problem with women. She said he routinely turned his back on her in parliament and refused to acknowledge her at social events, unlike other coalition MPs.
”Usually that’s a very friendly sort of environment because you’re a little bit off-duty, but not so with Mr Abbott,” Ms Roxon said. ”It’s known that we don’t like each other, but I don’t think that’s any reason why I’m not able to express those views.
”That’s part of politics.”
Mind you expecting different ‘on duty’ behaviour to ‘off duty’ behaviour indicates that the ALP are lying about Abbott for political gain.
