Which Labor figures are being protected by the ABC this time?

BELLING the cat she let out of a bag that should still be on her head, unashamed anti-Pell fabulist and 7-nil High Court loser Louise Milligan has casually revealed that she knows of Labor men in Canberra accused of sexual misconduct but won’t say who they are. The ABC roundsman for anything naughty that can be connected to Catholics and Liberals, Milligan barged bossily into the Brittany Higgins Panic yesterday like Hyacinth Bucket crashing a tupperware party. She also answered a possible trivial pursuit head-scratcher; to wit: what is the collective noun for female Labor staffers?

The alleged perpetrators are not confined to the Coalition side of the chamber — although in my experience speaking to dozens of politicians and staffers from across the chamber, I have heard far fewer complaints on the other side.

The handful of Labor women who are also alleging privately to me that they have been victimised are also staying schtum. Their reasons include that they don’t want to damage their side’s chances at the next election.

 
As Sir Les Patterson might say, some are more of a handful than others. Are you with me? Anyway, don’t hold your breath waiting for a Four Corners expose about Labor’s alleged lads. And you can’t blame the unforthcoming for being tentative about a reporter who gave a Pell accuser jailed for bashing his girlfriend a national forum on 7.30.

There aren’t too many Britannys in Bamaga

If you’ve lost count, there are now four – that’s right, four – separate inquiries underway into the Higgins matter. By contrast, zero inquiries are looking into the child abuse and domestic violence crisis in remote Aboriginal communities.

    So…all these Liberal staffers are confiding in her.

    And she is implying that because she has not heard so many from Labor staffers that it is much less of a problem (as opposed to perhaps a culture where people feel that to talk about such things will incur punishments).

    Or, perhaps by hinting at all the complaints she has heard from the left she is trawling for more lurid (if unsubstantiable stories) like she did on her earlier tour de false against a mild and blameless Cardinal.

  2. Mother Lode says:

    “Or, perhaps by hinting at all the complaints she has heard from the left right…”

    Geez, can’t tell my left from my right.

    This.

    They are alleging to her?

    Yeah, when I tell people things about myself I make sure I state it as an allegation.

  5. melb says:

    Maybe it’s the Greens and Labor women that are doing the raping? They are progressive aren’t they?

  6. H B Bear says:

    Let’s just skip the High Court this time eh? That didn’t really go according to the script. In fact it buggered the whole narrative.

    All of them.

    one of the finest opening lines to a post I have read in quite a long time. Bravo.

    Didn’t Julia Gilliard restrict an inquiry into child abuse from not looking into the Aboriginal communities?

    [sigh] you don’t stay schtum, you keep schtum

    It is because the Libs keep on falling over themselves to appease everyone in things like this that people keep doing it to them. They probably know better at a deeper level, but can’t bring themselves to say it out loud.

    Just no backbone.

    Isn’t it amazing that with such an operator as Photios who has them running ever faster in ever diminishing circles, and smiling as they are nightly excoriated on TV, and yet he has not been able to marshal a team which can fight outsiders.

    If it weren’t for the factional squabbling and knivings in Labor keeping them busy and spoiling their message we would never hear of a Liberal government.

  13. Mother Lode says:

    Julia hold the same principle as Joe talking about the persecution of ‘wiggers’ in China – it is their culture and while you might disagree you don’t interfere.

  14. Scott Osmond says:

    Once again we see with the propaganda industry that calls itself the 4th estate that it isn’t the principle, it’s the side. Refuse to talk to them. Refuse to watch or listen to them. Refuse to advertise on their platforms if you are in a position to. Defund them and close them down if you are in a governing party.

  15. Mak Siccar says:

    … zero inquiries are looking into the child abuse and domestic violence crisis in remote Aboriginal communities.

    +100 CL. Bravo!

    I simply cannot fathom why our gutless pollies endorse, nay promote, one set of rules for our indig brethren (and the mooslies too, of course) and another for us. It is destroying the coherence of, and mutual respect within, our society by pulling us down to their lowest common denominator instead of pulling them up to our (generally) more civilised behaviour heavily shaped by the rule of law. Shame on the Lieborals/Liebor/GreenFilth.

  16. egg_ says:

    Didn’t the Left turn on Emma Husar, and that was just a factional battle IIRC.

    She’s now back inside the tent at Their ALPBC, regularly appearing on Teh Dumb.

  17. egg_ says:

    There are cads on both sides of the political fence, but their cads are worse than our cads?

    Schoolyard politics from Aunty, in only a way that wymminses can.

    Leftard molls couldn’t give a stuff about sexual assault by Labour/Greens offenders against Labour/Green molls as long as the leftard tribe tricks voters into electing the Labour/Green tribe at the next election.

    For the left, sexual assault isn’t a matter or morality or misconduct, but a gotcha that can be used against the other tribe to gain power – the ultimate aphrodisiac. That’s if you can find any Labor/Green sexual assaulters who aren’t homosexuals buggering boys.

  19. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “The alleged perpetrators are not confined to the Coalition side of the chamber — although in my experience speaking to dozens of politicians and staffers from across the chamber, I have heard far fewer complaints on the other side.”

    Sure you have Louse. She’s such a shameless liar.

  20. I don’t suppose the possibility that labour rats are crucified by the party might explain the lower number of stories she hears?

    It only spell had just asked to keep things quiet she would have avoided the whole 7-Nilligan issue

  21. Bela Bartok says:

    This.

    Much easier to change the name of a cheese than confront actual horrors.
    Sounds like a First World white person problem?

  22. Tom says:

    … zero inquiries are looking into the child abuse and domestic violence crisis in remote Aboriginal communities.

    The Liars set up the sit-down-money blackfella plantation in the 1970s under Whitlam, who obstentatiously fed billions into the land rights industry.

    Sit-down money causes most of the domestic violence which the bleeding heart whites in the cities never see — unlike the Democratic Party’s colonisation of America’s blacks which included the genocide of unborn black children.

  23. ZK2A:

    Didn’t Julia Gilliard restrict an inquiry into child abuse from not looking into the Aboriginal communities?

    Why yes.
    Yes she did.
    Seeing that the Communists have thrown the whole Democracy and rules thingy out of the front door, perhaps it’s about time the minor parties started playing hard ball:
    1. Go to the next election on a platform of investigating the whole child abuse situation in Australia.
    2. Go to the next election on a platform of investigating the whole submarine fiasco with an aim to gaol lawbreakers and investigate where the money has/is going.
    3. Go to the next election on a platform of investigating the monies – all $34 billion /year where it is going, the efficiency of the Welfare system being provided on a racist basis.
    4. Go to the next election on a platform of investigating the whole influence of the Chinese Communist Party and its agents in the university/trade unions/military institutions.
    The minor parties are going to get crushed, anyway. Why not go down fighting?
    Remember that President Trump became so damn popular was because he showed he had balls and wasn’t afraid to take on anyone.
    It’s time to make the bastards stand up for something in their miserable lives.

  24. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Prey?

    Sure you have Louse. She’s such a shameless liar.

    Considering that the number of Labor pollies convicted of crimes way outnumbers those on the Liberal side, I am extremely doubtful.
    In any case, Louise Nilagain couldn’t lie straight in bed, so I wouldn’t trust anything that comes out of her mouth or keyboard.

    Tom, that explains why the term “sexual assault” is used in the leftist media to describe both rope and a hand on a thigh under a table.

  27. egg_ says:

    Labya minora?

  28. Des Deskperson says:

    ‘Didn’t the Left turn on Emma Husar, and that was just a factional battle IIRC’

    Whatever one thinks of Husar, she was subjected to an appalling campaign of abuse, including allegations of brazen sexual behaviour, from within the ALP.

    As egg suggests, it was probably part of some factional battle. An independent inquiry commissioned by Labor absolved her of the slut-shaming allegations, but they made her resign anyway.

    A separate issue was whether she abused/misused her staff. The matter was referred to h Department of Finance, Since the legislated duties and responsibilities of MOPS Act staff are extremely both broad and vague, I assume nothing came of it

  29. theleftfootkick says:

    Very interesting ‘open letter to Mr. Anthony Albanese Leader of the Federal Opposition from former Labor MP Emma Husar, ‘I can no longer sit in silence’ is demanding an apology from him over shocking treatment from the ALP back in 2019. Full details can be seen at Michaelsmithnews.com.au Apparently this open letter is as of today.

  30. davo says:

    Hmmm, and she hasn’t passed on any information or done anything about it herself?
    Holy than thou?

  31. TBH says:

    All allegations should be investigated by the appropriate authorities and don’t for one minute think that the ALP don’t have skeletons in the closet, Louise. As was rightly pointed out before, there have been a lot more left pollies convicted of sex crimes then those on the right.

  32. Squirrel says:

    “…..I have heard far fewer complaints on the other side…..”

    Of course, bashings are more the Labor way of doing things –

  33. Eyrie says:

    I couldn’t give a rat’s arse about anything that happens to those in politics, male or female. Pollies should be considered criminal psychopaths until proven otherwise and the staffers etc as aspiring criminal psychopaths. If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

  34. Simon Scammell says:

    Under section 316, anyone who knows or believes that a serious indictable offence has been committed and has material information that could assist with the apprehension or prosecution or conviction of the offender must bring that information to the attention of police or another appropriate body.

    A serious indictable offence is one that comes with a maximum penalty of 5 years or more and includes a wide-range of offences, such as:

    Larceny (stealing) including stealing from an employer,
    Break & enter,
    Most assaults,
    Most drug charges (but not drug possession) and
    Fraud

  35. Davey Boy says:

    Coming up on ABC TV, shown nationally, in a few minutes, a drama called Why Are You Like This.

    The précis for this, as shown on the TV guide:

    “Drama. (AD). After another bad date with a white guy, Mia decolonises her p*ssy. Penny tries to become best friends with Mia’s other friends, and Austin starts to spiral”

    So very ABC, edging inexorably towards normalising anti-white extremism. The sooner the joint is burnt down* the better.

    (*you know, like they say on Q&A, a metaphor, like)

  36. 2dogs says:

    Which Labor figures are being protected by the ABC this time?

    The sort of bloke that does this sort of thing does not do it just once. I would start looking at the SLF.

  37. Suburban Boy says:

    Simon Scammell, I assume you are referring to section 316 of the NSW Crimes Act 1900. The corresponding common-law offence which was there created by statute was called “misprision of felony”.

    Your summary of the effect of that section is correct, but generally irrelevant to matters involving staffers working in Parliament House, Canberra. There is no corresponding offence under ACT law so section 316 would only kick-in if the underlying offence occured in NSW, which I imagine it seldom would.

    Section 316 also contains an important defence where the underlying offence is a sexual offence. In such a case, the person accused under section 316 (that is, a person accused of failing to tell the coppers what he knows of the underlying offence) has a defence if he “reasonably believes” that the complainant “does not wish the information to be reported to police or another appropriate authority”.

    It seems to me that in a lot of cases, where the complainant has not herself made a formal complaint to the coppers, anyone else aware of the incident in question has a good defence against a prosecution under section 316.

    And, just repeating, the risk of such a prosecution arises only where the underlying offence takes place in NSW. Misprision of felony is no longer an offence in the ACT (or in Victoria for that matter).

  38. Joanna Smythe says:

    Never mind the ABC, they’ve been a lost cause for years. The Australian newspaper now is a joke. Any comment that questions the facts in an article or dares to offer a different opinion, is automatically rejected. I can’t believe how much it has moved to the left over the past couple of years. My subscription now is a waste of money and will eventually be cancelled but in the meantime I am just interested to see how far they will go to suppress opinions that don’t follow their new left wing doctrine.

  39. mundi says:

    Isn’t there some law against this? She has been told about abuse but hasn’t gone to the gubinment?

  40. RainMan says:

    any comment that questions the facts in an article or dares to offer a different opinion, is automatically rejected. I can’t believe how much it has moved to the left over the past couple of years.

    Any comment which suggests the 2020 US Election was not completely above board is also rejected. I no longer bother reading The Australian for US news and I will also cease my subscription and go back to buying the hard copy version in a few months’ time.

  41. RJH says:

    It’s not hard to unsubscribe to the OZ Joanna & RM, I did it two years ago after witnessing their biased & lying accounts of the Trump Presidency where they would not tolerate any subscriber views to the contrary. They particularly didn’t like it when I suggested they could have saved heaps of money by sacking their US Correspondent & substituted CNN as their News source for the same “News Content”?

    You just need to remember by continuing your subscription you are only encouraging the barstards to further their Left Marxist agenda? They don’t give a rats as to adhering to any standard of Journalistic principle as long as it furthers their ideological “march through yet another institution”?

  42. MichaelK says:

    Joanna Smythe, RainMan,RJH, I too am becoming thoroughly disillusioned with the standard of journalism, commentary put out by the Oz, especially from their US correspondent. Now, what am I to do?

  43. H B Bear says:

    “Drama. (AD). After another bad date with a white guy, Mia decolonises her p*ssy. Penny tries to become best friends with Mia’s other friends, and Austin starts to spiral”

    Nothing worse than getting some p*ssy and finding someone has set up a colony in there. No wonder people are protesting the whole colonial thing.

  44. Old Lefty says:

    Meanwhile, Governor Cuomo has been me-tooed in the US. What’s going on? This wasn’t in the left media’s script!

  45. Spurgeon Monkfish III says:

    especially from their US correspondent

    Their “US correspondent”, the execrable cameron stewart, is being moved on. Adam Creighton has been moved into the that role with the Oz.

  46. H B Bear says:

    Their “US correspondent”, the execrable cameron Stewart, is being moved on.

    Isn’t he being promoted where he can fuck even more of the paper? It’s an omen. Being moved on implies sending them to Nein/Fauxfacts RIP or the ALPBC like Kervalas where they are in their natural environment.
