  1. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Hopefully Albo will now meet with Kathy Sheriff and address her complaint.
    He wouldn’t want to be a hypocrite, would he?

  2. win says:

    People will be taking bets on just how many more times Louise Milligan can neon light what a fool looks like.

  3. duncanm says:

    No worries, the national broadcaster is right on it.

    Buried down in para 11 of this expose on the cabinet minister

    Is Sarah Sea-Patrol insisting Albo “do something”?

    On Sunday, Anthony Albanese told ABC’s Insiders the allegation against a current cabinet minister is a “test” for Morrison, who must satisfy himself it is appropriate for the man to continue in his current position.

    Albanese refused to say how he would handle a similar allegation against a Labor frontbencher, arguing that this was a hypothetical.

    well Albo, what about it ?

    Is this another Shorten article?

  6. Roger W says:

    At last. Fighting back in the only way possible.
    Remember the scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid where someone challenges Butch to a knife fight and he says, “hang on a minute lets settle the rules”. The opponent stands, legs asplay, and says, “what rules?” Butch kicks him in the groin and says, “that’s right, there are no rules in a knife fight”.

  7. Cassie of Sydney says:

    Back in 2014 the Liberals did the decent thing and kept shtum about Bill Shorten…they could have made huge political capital out of it, instead they remained silent. It is worth noting that throughout the police investigation Shorten did not step down from his position as leader.

    Now in 2021 we are witnessing a complete contrast. Labor has deliberately politicised this allegation. I find it hard to believe that people in the party like Shorten, Fitzgibbon and others would be supporting this quite deliberate and very nasty politicisation but the likes of Wong and Keneally possess no such decency. They are determined to destroy Morrison and the Liberal government regardless. So I was very, very happy to hear that Senator Henderson had passed on the letter. For far too long the Liberals have turned the other cheek to this muck.

    Labor will reap what it sows.

  8. Judith Sloan says:

    It’s all about Louise. Certainly not respecting the family of the alleged victim.

  9. miltonf says:

    Wong and Keneally possess no such decency.

    Poisonous people. Antipodean versions of AOC and that horrible woman from Minnesota.

  10. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “It’s all about Louise. Certainly not respecting the family of the alleged victim.”

    Exactly.

  11. miltonf says:

    Our very own squad. Pathetic in a way how the Australian left just copies the bullshit from the US.

  12. BrettW says:

    Whilst it is tragic the lady is no longer with us this means any evidence is now hearsay. There is no physical evidence as we are talking about 1988. No doubt Labor are happy to convict and smear based on that. No man can defend himself in such circumstances. They are truly despicable.

  13. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “BrettW says:

    Which is why I want Labor to be bitten and bitten hard because, in the case of the allegation against the Labor frontbencher, there is a woman who is alive to testify.

  14. notafan says:

    Louise Milligan is an awful writer.

  15. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “no doubt Labor are happy to convict and smear based on that.”

    Fine..then it works both ways.

    This whole process of smearing, smearing and smearing in order to convict started with Pell……and of course the same Louse is involved in this.

  16. H B Bear says:

    I’m sure Sarah Hyphen-SeaPatrol will inject the necessary rational thought and measured balance this issue demands.

  17. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “Louise Milligan is an awful writer.”

    Louse Milligan is an awful person.

  18. duncanm says:

    Louise Milligan is an awful writer.

    She sure is. I would have suspected this tweet was after one too many sherry’s, but its 10am in the morning.

    What, exactly, does this mean?

    .. the PM must confirm to himself that the Cabinet Minister, that it is appropriate that he remain in Cabinet

    Maybe she meant: The PM must convince himself that it is appropriate that the Cabinet Minister remains in Cabinet

    Well… presumably that’s exactly what the PM has done, or the bloke would be out. No?

  19. H B Bear says:

    Believe all victims.

  20. Wallace says:

    Would you want this mob running the country?

  21. maree says:

    Labor must have known this would re-surface when it started down this track. They must have been blind, deaf and stupid to think a person who sought to be PM, with an accuser who is still in the land of the living, would not be fair game for the tactics they are using against the governing party.

    Shame on politics, and more shame on Labor for forcing a cover-up on behalf of one of its own former shining sons, while turning heat on the other side over same accusations from three decades ago.

    Hypocrites and disgusting bastards.

  22. Entropy says:

    They s just think it won’t happen to them as the same rules don’t apply. Sociopaths the lot of them.
    Plus the likes of 7-Nilligan doing the dirty work for them.

  23. mareeS says:

    How blind, deaf and stupid is Labor to pursue this course, knowing that accusations against their own former would-be PM and frontbencher are still maintained by her and un-investigated by VicPol?

  24. Major Elvis Newton says:

    #believeallwomen

    Right Tanya, Penny, Sarah, Louise, et al?

  25. mareeS says:

    How deaf, dumb and stupid of Labor not to know this would come back to bite them?

  26. mareeS says:

    Apologies for repeats, the site is playing tricks. Long time here, occasional commenter, now having to do tiresome log-ins, as of today. Why?

    How deaf, dumb and stupid of Labor not to know this would come back to bite them?”

    I think it’s a combo of hubris, narcissism and vicious spite. They’re angry at Morrison’s popularity.

  28. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “Major Elvis Newton says:

    Only #believeallwomen when they allege something against conservatives.

  29. Bruce in WA says:

    The presumption of innocence imposes on the prosecution the burden of proving the charge and guarantees that no guilt can be presumed until the charge has been proved beyond reasonable doubt.

    — Australian Attorney General’s Office

  30. candy says:

    There is something to be said for facing up to allegations and being upfront about them from the beginning instead of letting things fester. Shorten can never be leader again. He has hidden this too long and Labor know how to crush his hopes if they want to.

    I just wonder if the wives/families of the men involved would prefer to see the man upfront categorically deny, state his case. There are only so many cabinet ministers.
    Hard to know how one would react. Be open and open to questioning or just wait it out till the Left crazies give it up. (assuming man is innocent).

  31. Jo says:

    Chloe may as well give the curtains for the Lodge to Vinnies.

  32. Mother Lode says:

    Albanese refused to say how he would handle a similar allegation against a Labor frontbencher, arguing that this was a hypothetical.

    In that case he would not be in any position to say that Scomo had handled it badly – if he doesn’t have some idea as to how it should be managed. Perhaps not to the finest detail, but how can a person hear of a situation that could happen to them without at least contemplating a plan in broad strokes purely as a defensive position.

    It is of course a cop out. He does not want to become a story and take the spotlight off the Libs, but more importantly he plans criticise whatever the Libs do.

  33. I would have suspected this tweet was after one too many sherry’s, but its 10am in the morning.

    That hardly rules out Ms Lose 7-Nil Again.

    No, that works out. If you use beer instead of milk for the Rice Bubbles, that’s 4 standard drinkies by 1000.
    *snap/crackle/burp!*

  36. duncanm says:

    Surely Kahlua, Baileys or some other creamy abomination is more appropriate for the Rice Bubbles.

  37. lotocoti says:

    The gibberish after the colon is Albospracht, not a carefully crafted, over-remunerated Nilliganism.
    Probably.

    Milligan is the alpbc s manhunter general burning malereputations at thecmicrophone . A truly evil person a modern day Torquemada .
    The socialist Hitlers minionGoebells set the pattern for todays socialist Liars .
    These mongrelsare truly evil .

  39. BrettW says:

    If Shorten is damaged by this does Albo really care ?

  40. rich says:

    Labor will reap what it sows.

    No they won’t. Not while the conservative side is full of cuckolds who would rather lose honourably in a knife-fight and are willing to drag “allies” down with them.

  41. Terry Pedersen says:

    Already investigated by the Police years ago and found to have no credibility.

  42. Roger says:

    Milligan demonstrating yet again that she has a tenuous grasp of the most basic of our legal principles.

  43. Rafiki says:

    Brett at 10.34

    Yes, but if she has made a report in writing, this might be admitted as evidence of what she asserts to be fact under exceptions in the Evidence Act +NSW). I think it’s a 65, but a 66 might also apply. Evidence by the likes of Wong as to what she said would be second-hand and inadmissible (unless adduced for a non-hearsay purpose.

    Maree and others. It may be that some in Labor see this as a way to sabotage Shorten, embarrass Albi, and clear the way for Pliberseck. (This is not an original thought.)

  44. min says:

    We have another troll who posts misinformation no Terry police said they could not find the witnesses victim supplied so she has found them for police .

  45. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “Already investigated by the Police years ago and found to have no credibility.”

    Don’t you know….our resident creep has the sharpest legal mind in the country……just ask Ben Batterham.

    The deceased withdrew the day before she died.

    There is no case.

  47. Wallace says:

    Bloody hell.
    Your abc is full on today with get the government accusations against the PM.
    Hardly any mention of the Sarah H email.
    The Oz has gone quiet on all reporting of anything.
    My member in the Vic Legislative ass. Is asking me if I think she should oppose dictator dans new proposal for a 12 month continuation of the state of emergency.
    Bloody hell!

  48. shatterzzz says:

    Remember way back when ……. this was all about a certain Miss Higgins! .. So, sooo long ago now ………

  49. notafan says:

    No credibility?

    I don’t think so, more no prospect of conviction as an ancient he said she said.

    Young man has sex with a alcohol affected 16 year old after he comes into her room at 4 am.

    He admitted the sex.

    If it wasn’t a crime it was still disgraceful behaviour.

    But I still don’t think it should go to court either.

    The decision to allow adults to pursue abuse allegations without a time limit is a poor one, leaves the door to false claims too wide.

    Just wait for inconvenient exculpatory witnesses to die.

  50. Cassie of Sydney says:

    Will this make the SFL….always craven, always spineless and always supine when dealing with the progressive left and in particular…their ABC…..finally wake up and grow a spine?

  51. Jo says:

    rich the SFL’s are not conservative

  52. Terry Pedersen says:

    police said they could not find the witnesses victim supplied so she has found them for police

    She said she’d found them back then too (2013?) and has been on about it ever since her claims were found to be not credible. It’s like the nun and the gorilla: “He doesn’t phone, he doesn’t write”.

  53. Lee says:

    Already investigated by the Police years ago and found to have no credibility.

    By VicPol, the most politicised, left wing (and arguably corrupt) police force in the country.
    LOL

  54. BrettW says:

    Terry P has full confidence in VICPOL investigations based on lawyer X and Pell cases.

  55. Pedro the Loafer says:

    Louise (7-0) Milligan reckons all men are monsters and should be jailed for smiling at a pretty woman.

    Except ALP/lefty men. They can have open slather at the ladies under her rules.

  56. rugbyskier says:

    I wonder if the ALP has the chutzpah to say that the allegations are a load of BS.

  57. Mick Gold Coast QLD says:

    The entire cast in this comedy is wymminses, from bleating victims of 30 year old accusations (which need not exist because the multiple complaint forums and “all sheilas must be believed” mindset was well established back then, when they did nothing to make their case) to long term political actresses who have been playing prepubescent schoolgirl nasty games from the day they arrived in the Parliament.

    They are all the same – Louse 7-nil again, that Wong chap, the utterly evil yank – Eddie’s gurrrlll, the useless Minister for War who ran away to hospital, the adult chickie who went back to the office late with some randy bloke after a night on the turps, our Sarah (lovely lass that) who has built a pointless career on her backside in the Senate feeding on this drivel … .

    Then there is Tanya – missus of a gaoled drug dealer who now runs Justice in NSW! – the likely beneficiary of their loose alliance, for as long as it lasts before they turn on each other.

    The species is its own worst enemy, reserving its most vicious efforts for other wymminses – its primeval.

  58. Baa Humbug says:

    I know Milligan is a biatch but why are some people attributing to her the Albo quote in her tweet? Did yuze really need quotation marks?

    Also, it is not clear if the email received by Henderson is about Shorten. I think it may be about a different MP.

  59. LBLoveday says:

    If it wasn’t a crime it was still disgraceful behaviour.
    .
    Providing (more like plying) her with alcohol and cannabis was a crime, although the Statute of Limitations may render prosecution impossible.

    As a female I have to agree with you Mick. As a male saying that, look out as you’ll be cancelled, as women are on a roll at the moment and can do no wrong. It’s maddening.

  62. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “Mick Gold Coast QLD says:
    March 1, 2021 at 1:05 pm”

    As a woman I agree with every word you wrote.

  63. Rafiki says:

    Not so Notafan, even if a rape charge is laid. However, I suspect the greater danger here is a coronial inquest in SA. Will the Coroner be invited to explore whether the cause of her death was the rape? I suspect that this is what Turnbull has in mind and will be the main game here. The rules of evidence are looser and ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ is not the standard of proof.

  64. mareeS says:

    Baa Humbug, if the email wasn’t about short one (who has never responded to the allegations), then Labor has two problems.

    ps, as a woman who has been around the media/politics game, I agree women in politics is the equivalent of my old girls’ high school, in that you either swim with them or they eat you. I got out a long time ago, it was too much like lunchtime at St Aloysius.

    Stay out of it and have a better life, girls. Politics is brutal, so don’t whinge if you get onto that ladder and decide to keep climbing. Look at the results.

  65. Syd Gal says:

    There seems to be a pattern in Milligan upsetting complainants and their families in her pursuit of investigative journalism. She even writes about this in her books on the Pell case. 1. In Chris Friel’s recent piece, “The Chronology of Tethering” Friel says that the choirboy made a complaint about Milligan visiting him at the RSL club. 2. In her book Cardinal, Milligan admits that one family felt “very anxious” about a male relative going public on the ABC and the impact this would have on the family (that person had been convicted of assaulting his partner but Louise “warmed to him” when they met). 3. In her book Witness, Milligan writes about the mother of the deceased choirboy. Milligan complains that cross examination made it sound as if Milligan had written the mother’s account without her permission sounds like some other family observations). 4. Also in Witness – Milligan writes about a complainant she visited in Qld – she had named him in Cardinal – “when he got the book he was horrified to see that he was named”. 5. Milligan door knocked a complainant who had made an allegation in 2002 – “The man’s face changed when he realised I was a journalist and he wasn’t happy I was there”.

    Last Friday Milligan tweeted: “BREAKING: Exclusive from me” about letters sent to the PM and others – but what was her involvement in this latest matter? Does this relate to the Inside the Canberra Bubble program which I think she said took 4 months to make?

  66. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “Last Friday Milligan tweeted: “BREAKING: Exclusive from me” about letters sent to the PM and others – but what was her involvement in this latest matter? Does this relate to the Inside the Canberra Bubble program which I think she said took 4 months to make?”

    She’s involved and yes…..it relates to the Four Corners’ hit piece last year.

  67. John A says:

    From the linked piece:

    Allegation aired following letter
    A 31-page dossier outlining the allegation was sent by express post to the offices of the Prime Minister, Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young and Senator Wong on Wednesday.

    The list of addressees tells me that this is entirely a grubby, political hit-job.

  68. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “The list of addressees tells me that this is entirely a grubby, political hit-job.”

    Ah yes…and Nilligan is up to her neck in it.

  69. BrettW says:

    If Milligan thought the 1988 Sydney case was relevant to the Canberra bubble program then why not the Shorten case ?. Pretty similar in nature and time and that both well before alleged culprits became MP’s.

    VICPOL have a credibility problem (what is new) in that they proceeded against Pell knowing he had plenty of alibi witnesses but only the word of one person. How can they say Shorten case ant rely on one person. After all Andrews did say he would believe all victims.

    In this case Labor and the Press surely can’t think there is a case without a live complainant ?

  70. Old Lefty says:

    The Oz is reporting today that the family of the dead woman who made (and withdrew) the complaint against the minister didn’t want the ABC to go public with it.

    The Milligan trifecta: anonymous sources, breaches of confidence and conveniently dead witnesses.

  71. H B Bear says:

    Very hard to get any air time about getting felt up by Alan Tudge (allegedly) in the current media environment.

  72. Tim Neilson says:

    Already investigated by the Police years ago and found to have no credibility.

    Careful Terry, that’s potentially defamatory.

    They didn’t find any such thing. They found that there was no reasonable prospect of a conviction under the then laws, at which time a “he said she said” case was unlikely to succeed.

  73. Tom says:

    I gather someone at the ABC has constructed a gotcha against an electorally popular unnamed Queensland federal cabinet minister who Get Up failed to dislodge at the 2019 election with a protracted smear campaign.

    That’s why the ABC sent a smug female knowall (apparently not a member of the Canberra press gallery) to today’s press conference with Morrison, who lectured him about what he should do about aged care while gagging to ask him about the ABC’s latest gotcha target.

    If it was Albo, the ABC wymmynses would be lining up to give him a happy ending.

  74. caveman says:

    The PM should call a National lockdown until this dark cloud passes.
    Lockdowns are just so hot right now.

  75. Dot says:

    Remember when the Get It Up! fuckhead actually did or faked passing out on Da Project?

  76. BrettW says:

    Plus they said they could not find the people she said might assist her case. She says she has subsequently found them but strangely they are not interested.

    Albo needs to ask for case to be re-opened or keep quiet about the other case. Can’t have him being one side can we ?

    “They didn’t find any such thing. They found that there was no reasonable prospect of a conviction under the then laws, at which time a “he said she said” case was unlikely to succeed”

  77. Syd Gal says:

    Yes, it’s hard to understand the differing approaches by Vic Police with the Pell case and the other historic he said/she said case. But another issue with the Pell case was that somehow the complainant was able to describe furniture which had not been built in 1996. The description is in the 2016 42 min VicPol/Pell Rome interview on the SMH site and in the HCA 12 March video around about 2:50 for 20 mins. It was redacted in the transcript. Then look at photos of the Priests’ Sacristy in the public domain. This has been covered in numerous articles by Chris Friel on Academia and in Windschuttle’s recent book.

  78. Dot says:

    But another issue with the Pell case was that somehow the complainant was able to describe furniture which had not been built in 1996.

    He should be charged with perjury.

  79. Tator says:

    Tim Neilson,
    It was actually the Office of the DPP which stated “There was no reasonable prospect of a conviction” Even though there were 1700 pages of evidence submitted by VICPOL investigators to the DPP. Peter Faris QC has started assisting Sherriff in getting the case heard in court.

    Faris’s statement
    I am a retired Criminal Barrister and I am assisting Kathy in her endeavour to get Justice.

    In my view the Police should reopen the investigation into this matter and the Office of Public Prosecutions should prosecute Shorten.

    This is a serious complaint of rape and Kathy is entitled to her day in court as is Shorten.

    This case is similar in circumstances to the Pell case where the victim was the only eye-witness.

    As we know in that case a conviction was obtained on that evidence.

    Kathy is entitled to be heard in a criminal trial and to have a jury decide guilt or innocence.

    Peter Faris QC
    This statement was made before the High Court acquitted Pell on appeal. But the changes in Victorian Jury Direction laws that enabled Pell to be tried even when the ODPP turned VICPOL briefs down twice.
    One big difference is that Sherriff has a “recent complaint” witness to add support to the case.

  97. Syd Gal says:

    From SMH and recent ABC news report – The lawyer for the woman who took her life last year is Michael Bradley (Marque Lawyers). The firm seems to be the beneficiary listed on Nina Funnell’s LetHerSpeak Go Fund me page. And an ABC and Crikey commentator on Pell matters: 2015 story https://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-05-25/bradley-come-home-and-face-the-commission,-pell/6494330 Crikey Aug 2019 : “Put aside anyone’s personal reverence for Pell the cardinal, or the church for which he has been a steadfast warrior; ignore their consequently blinkered conviction that he must be innocent at all costs. Look at the facts.

    These include, apart from the evidence in Pell’s own case, the objective truth of child sexual abuse. It happens in the dark. Its perpetrators are men of power, wielding that power, frequently within institutional settings. The royal commission exposed that the men who do this evil are men like Pell.

    That doesn’t mean that Pell is guilty, of course. It means that the loud protestation that he could not be guilty because of who he is, is as lacking in foundation as the Catholic Church’s continuing claim to moral authority.

    Add to that the testimony of his victim, believed by an impartial jury and now further vindicated by the Court of Appeal, and there is nothing left to accept but that the law has spoken with definitive force. Pell’s disgrace is affirmed”.

    I guess he doesn’t know about the wine in the wardrobe problem.

  98. Rafiki says:

    Sydney Gal
    For the High Court, the unchallenged evidence of Msgr Portelli and one other that Pell stood on the steps for more than 10 minutes gave rise to the reasonable possibility that Pell could not have been in the sacristy.

  99. Dr Faustus says:

    One thing that is clear is how thoroughly weaponised both sets of allegations have been – against Morrison, rather than the alleged perps. The common fingerprints and MO are remarkable.

    Rafiki – yes, I understand, and I attended Day 1 of the HCA Pell case in Canberra. The comments above are from a lawyer who seems to be quite involved with many of these high profile cases.

  102. Docket62 says:

    @ Terry Pederson “ Already investigated by the Police years ago and found to have no credibility.”

    Fuckwit… It was not investigated. The DPP on the day (John Cains son) simply waived his magical wand and dismissed the investigation. Having worked for Plod I know full well how that happens, how and why. Witness statements disappear and they trot out the ‘unlikely to successfully prosecute’ bullshit…. A bit like Andrews missus involved in a prank and never breath tested. Its harder to have a BAC reading set aside than it is to lose a witness statement.

    Pells case is a perfect example of a ‘brick’. Shorten has a case to answer and should be cross examined under OATH.

    Get your facts straight

    The DPP on the day (John Cains son) simply waived his magical wand and dismissed the investigation

    In the same way the investigation of Julia Gilliard went from “a dozen detectives working with an unlimited budget – something rare in police circles” – to be hand balled to Western Australian DPP who buried the whole file?

    I read it and laughed. Oh yes….it’s all getting filthier. Louse Milligan, Turdbull and all the other narcissistic rodents are coming out of their holes. If this isn’t a political hit job I don’t know what is.

    Why isn’t that treacherous scum booted out of the Liberal Party already?

  112. Ed Case says:

    ***Back in 2014 the Liberals did the decent thing and kept shtum about Bill Shorten…***
    They were never going to make an issue of it, they learned the hard way [Wilson Tuckey vs Keating in the lead up to the 1993 “unloseable” election] that there’s no mileage in Muck.
    ***…they could have made huge political capital out of it, instead they remained silent.***
    See comment above.
    Abbott tried to grandstand over it in Parliament, confirming he was an idiot with a
    tin ear.
    No Labor voter was going to ditch Shorten over some muck from 30 years ago, but
    it wouldna taken many Liberal voters in Marginals casting a protest vote over Grubby Politics to have made Shorten Prime Minister in 2016.

  113. Roger says:

    One thing that is clear is how thoroughly weaponised both sets of allegations have been – against Morrison

    That was clear from the moment Ms Higgins appeared on the media scene to explain why she was airing a two year old complaint which she originally declined to report to police: Morrison had his photo taken with the Australian of the Year, an advocate for victims of sexual assault.

  114. Ed Case says:

    ***One thing that is clear is how thoroughly weaponised both sets of allegations have been – against Morrison***
    Not buying either of those.
    The Labor Party have run dead on the Brittany Higgins issue, but the other one doesn’t hurt Scotty at all, and Scotty’s mentor, Turnbull has been backing it for years.
    Here’s what’s more likely: someone with vastly more ability than Scotty is looking to roll him and prevent the Liberal Party going over a cliff at the election.
    Naturally, the ALP would rather face shopworn obvious liar Scotty than anyone else.

  115. Dot says:

    Here’s what’s more likely: someone with vastly more ability than Scotty is looking to roll him and prevent the Liberal Party going over a cliff at the election.

    Yeah, that’s exactly it. Beachworm Bill.

    You stop a plane from crashing by blowing it up or shooting everyone before they can fuck up, amirite?

  116. Snoopy says:

    TheirABC 22nd August 2014.

    The Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has publicly identified himself as the central figure in an alleged rape case dating back to 1986. Mr Shorten has been cleared after an investigation by Victoria Police.

    The VicPol investigation cleared just one of Australia’s 26 million people. It might be unwise to think you’ve got away it.

  117. Terry Pedersen says:

    It was not investigated.

    Get your facts straight

    Yes, sure. What’s this then?

    Victorian police have confirmed that the allegation has been investigated but they will not be proceeding with criminal charges.

    “Investigating police sought advice from the Office of Public Prosecutions, which advised there was no reasonable prospect of conviction,” a statement from Victoria Police said.

    “All parties have been notified that Victoria Police will not be proceeding with criminal charges.”

    You poor old bugger. Try not to call me nasty names, or I’ll sool my defamation tax agent, Tiny Tim, onto you.

  118. egg_ says:

    Narcs only know destructiveness, Nero style.

    You “fix” something by white anting it, of course.

    The fable of the scorpion and the frog.

  119. Docket62 says:

    Victorian police have confirmed that the allegation has been investigated“

    Sure. and the science is settled. I love people who believe what they read in the meeeja. Victoria Police also confirmed that shooting a man 7 times with a 6 shot revolved is ‘plausible’ too.

    No, I’ll stick with Fuckwit. It fits you well.

  120. Tim Neilson says:

    “Investigating police sought advice from the Office of Public Prosecutions, which advised there was no reasonable prospect of conviction,” a statement from Victoria Police said.

    So presumably you’re now going to retract your previous statement:
    Already investigated by the Police years ago and found to have no credibility.

  121. Terry Pedersen says:

    Guess there’s no point saying: “Sic him, Tim” then. Lol

  122. Ed Case says:

    Dot says:
    ***Yeah, that’s exactly it. Beachworm Bill.***
    Thanks, pal.
    What chance do you think Scotty has of getting away with it?
    My prediction: the Government will have fallen over by this time next week.

  123. notafan says:

    Oooh a prediction.
    Love those.

  124. Terry Pedersen says:

    I love people who believe what they read in the meeeja.

    Yeah, me too.

    “Investigating police sought advice from the Office of Public Prosecutions, which advised there was no reasonable prospect of conviction,” a statement from Victoria Police said.

    Waddaya say, Timmy? Lol

  125. egg_ says:

    What is it with Leftoid trolls and Wrongology – projection of their sad, failed lives?

  126. Ed Case says:

    You’ve answered your own question.
    Meanwhile, it sounds like i’ve hit the target.

  127. Dr Faustus says:

    The Labor Party have run dead on the Brittany Higgins issue, but the other one doesn’t hurt Scotty at all…

    You may not have been following the news:

    Labor frontbencher Penny Wong has launched a scathing attack on Scott Morrison and the government, accusing the Prime Minister of being a part of the cover up in the case of the alleged rape of a former staffer.

    Also you may not have been following Mx Milligan.
    Try to keep up.

  128. Dr Faustus says:

    Scott Morrison says Cabinet Minister named in anonymous letter ‘vigorously’ rejected rape allegation

    Speaking for the first time since the allegation was made public, the Prime Minister said he would not take any specific action beyond leaving the allegations in the hands of police.

    A bit slow off the mark, our Scotty.
    Too many opinions to gather, I suppose.

  129. Ed Case says:

    ***Labor frontbencher Penny Wong has launched a scathing attack on Scott Morrison and the government***
    About something that allegedly happened in 1988?
    Seriously?
    It’s window dressing to give Scotty cover to name the guy and stand him down, effectively ending his political career, since we’ll have an election before the Inquest gets around to convening.
    Scotty is a greasy operator, somewhere a deal’s been done to memoryhole Brittany Higgins.
    Remember how Scotty got preselection in Cook?
    He’s running that production again.

  130. H B Bear says:

    You’re killing it Groogs.

    Ed, serious question, is the vapid wrongness thing a schtick?
    My apologies if it’s an acquired injury.

  133. Ed Case says:

    How can something that allegedly happened more than a generation ago be taken
    seriously by the Prime Minister unless he chooses to take it seriously?

    Why would he choose to take it seriously, you ask?
    Because he’s in diabolical trouble due to all the lying over Brittany Higgins, plus he’s taking the Liberal Party over a cliff unless he’s rolled.

  134. Ed Case says:

    ***Ed, serious question, is the vapid wrongness thing a schtick?***
    Is repeating the daily ALP talking points your schtick, or do you really believe it?

    Yup, Grigs came back with a “Zinger” in the next 5 mins.

  137. duncanm says:

    Fairfax has basically confirmed it is the short one, by describing the lack of VicPol action on the case.

  138. Syd Gal says:

    I’m still unclear about ABC/Milligan’s relationship with the alleged rape victim. Milligan reported the type of rape on ABC radio late last Friday. From J Gans Uni Melb twitter: “There is a serious question about why the type of rape is part of this reporting. Was the goal to get people angry? Or…? And how did the complainant’s or her family’s privacy or views factor into that decision?…..If – and it’s a big if – the media’s inquiries or approach affected the complainant in some way prior to June 2020, then presumably that will be explored at the coronial hearing”.

  139. BrettW says:

    Just a thought. Could the interest of Penny Wong, Hanson Young and the ABC / Milligan etc have been a contributory factor in her death as knew was going to be politicised. If a non politician had been involved they would have had no interest.

  140. Tim Neilson says:

    Waddaya say, Timmy? Lol

    What do I say?
    First, I’ll remind everyone of your comment:
    Already investigated by the Police years ago and found to have no credibility.

    Then I’ll remind them of the evidence that you yourself came up with:
    “Investigating police sought advice from the Office of Public Prosecutions, which advised there was no reasonable prospect of conviction,” a statement from Victoria Police said.

    I’ll leave it to them to discern the difference between “no reasonable prospect of a conviction” and “found to have no credibility”, which you obviously believe to be synonymous.

    Then I’ll finish by saying “there’s no reasonable prospect of Terry Pedersen’s statement being validated”.

  141. Gees the socks are thick today – we must be over the target!

  143. The Ghost of Debates Past says:

    The lady who died – I won’t use her name, although she was well known to me at the time – was a star student debater in the late 1980s in SA. The two persons originally from SA who have been recently quoted in the ABC or have written articles for the ABC were fellow debaters at the time and friends. Both Nick and Jo are avowedly of the Left, and have been all the time I have known them, but that does not call into question their reasons for speaking publicly. For what its worth, I would not disagree with anything they have said about the character of the deceased. I don’t have any knowledge of the truth or otherwise of her claims. I hope that Malcolm Turnbull is not simply settling a score with a Minister who did not support him at the time of the change of leadership.
