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?
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.

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.
