The Misogyny Speech
Transcript of The Misogyny Speech
Reception of the Speech
"More desperate than convincing" (Michelle Grattan)
"Chose to defend the indefensible" (Peter Harthcer)
October 9, 2012
Political Scandal - Peter Slipper
1st Female prime minister
"I am offended by those text messages. But I also believe, in terms of this Parliament making a decision about the speakership, that this Parliament should recognise that there is a court case in progress. That the judge has reserved his decision, that having waited for a number of months for the legal matters surrounding Mr. Slipper to come to a conclusion, that this Parliament should see that conclusion.
I believe that is the appropriate path forward, and that people will then have an opportunity to make up their minds with the fullest information available to them.
But whenever people make up their minds about those questions, what I won't stand for, what I will never stand for is the Leader of the Opposition coming into this place and peddling a double standard. Peddling a standard for Mr. Slipper the would not set for himself. Peddling a standard for Mr. Slipper he has not set for other members of his frontbench."
