Once again the problem of women and the Liberal Party is in the news. Two women staffers have made allegations that they were raped whilst working for Liberal Federal Ministers, sexual misconduct allegations have been made in the past, without any substantive changes being made to protect women working within parliament. The history of the Liberal Party shows it to be anti women, from women excluded from cabinet, to women being denied a chance at winnable seats in parliament. Julie Bishop one of the very few capable women who "made it" within the party, she was given a pathetic handful of votes when she stood for the leadership. Claims of bulling within, from female Liberal MP's, was well aired not so long ago.

There is a long held belief that conservatives treat women as second class. The handling of recent rape allegations and the failure of the government or the party to follow through with action to prevent such happening again, shows their lack of willingness to do something for female victims. The party would much rather victimise the victim as the solution to its problem, than do anything worthwhile.

And it was two women politicians who knew about it who did not report it to the PM. The woman herself didn't report it. Can't blame the party for that.

And let's not forget the alleged victim and the alleged rapist had both been boozing. The alleged victim has now a accused the PM of "blaming the victim". Same old same old. Make an allegation well past the event. Nothing new here. Certainly nothing to do with the Liberal party at all.

Anyway, the alleged offender was not a Liberal politician, but an employee. It is absurd to bring politics into a crime, if a crime has need committed. If a crime has been committed, it's a matter for the police, who can act only if a complaint is made by the woman herself. The Liberal party has lots of faults, but the suggestion that this incident, if it happened, is somehow a party problem is plain silly.

Pauliar,

Always the one to pile on a negative story on the Libs, but completely in denial about the paedophiles and kiddie fiddlers in the Greens. A question could be asked about what have the greens done to protect children from their members?

The situation for Senator Reynolds was complicated, Ms Higgins refused to report the situation to the police at the time and only pursued the issue sometime later. The alleged offender was fired and was questioned by the police. Reynolds had the choice of protecting the privacy of Ms H or escalating the issue

There you go again shonkyminister, that fixation you have with paedophiles. You seem to get off on that particular subject. Bring it up even when its not related to the topic, other posters are wondering about you.

I must say how unbelievable, the Morrison claim that he only become aware of allegations of rape within the party last week, his insincere wringing of hands, and fain shock at the alleged rapes, don't cut the mustard with most people. BTW; there are now two such allegations. The alleged rapists was sacked, not over the claimed rape, but for a security breach.

There is more to this topic than the two alleged rapes, serious as they are. The evidence is there that the Liberal Party has deep seated problems dealing with women in general. Given the parties pathetic track record in matters female, its hard to understand why 50% of the electorate would even consider them for their vote, and thinking men would also dismiss the Liberals and Nationals as the parties made up of too many misogynistic men.

Chris Lewis says it all. It is ridiculous to link the bad behaviour of individuals (still only alleged in this case) to a political party; including the poor treatment of employees by a past Greens leader.

Yes too, to hasbeen's comment. I'm reading "The Persecution of George Pell" describing the appalling injustice done by judges to Pell through listening to and believing 'memories' from the past.

Pauliar,

Only the green party paedophiles. I know that you are desperately trying to cover up your party's sordid past, but each time you post BS I will bring it up.

I asked you whether the Greens had come up with any strategy to protect children from their members. Apparently, it's not a problem for you.

As for your belief, as a green, it is not worth a pinch of sh1t.

I actually worked for a federal MP who was convicted of receiving money and seeking sexual favours in return for helping Chinese immigrants with visa applications.

Of course, sexual exploitation or opportunism has no political party boundary.

Hi Chris,

There are rotten apples in every political party, and from time to time the criminals get exposed, and rightly so. My question here is not a concern for the criminals within, but the "culture" regarding women that appears to exist, predominantly within the Liberal Party at the federal level. Women have struggled from the beginning for political recognition and and their rightful participation in the process. It wasn't men demanding they be given the vote by women, in western democracies at the beginning of the twentieth century, but just the opposite, women struggling for what was rightfully theirs, and its been a struggle for equality ever since.

Recent history is littered with claims of misogyny, bullying, gender discrimination and sexual assaults all against women, and all associated with the Liberal Party. My thread title "Women a Liberal Party Problem" seems to be true. The more progressive parties have moved beyond the days when politics was purely a male dominated domain and have embraced women as equals. Unfortunately the conservative side of politics has a long way to go before their attitudes towards women truly change. I can't see evidence that the men's club, aka the Liberal Party is willing to embrace real change any time soon.

The fact Morrison had to ask the little woman at home, about a girly problem at work, and his wring of hands and obvious insincerity before the cameras yesterday, shows where the Liberal Party is at when it comes to gender equality within. They don't have a clue!

Maybe the PM is even more remote from the rest of us than we even thought. Even so, it is nothing to do with him, unless he is also running ACT police, and the person claiming she was raped has made a complaint, which I understand she now has. So, here we go with another 'historic' sex case with the usual suspects bleating "we believe you" because she's a woman and 'all men are bad'. Remember Craig McLaughlin, Geoffrey Rush - both cleared. And the most alarming case, George Pell. Australians coming to the attention of the law can no longer be sure of justice.

Some are trying to create war between the sexes.

Fourth generation feminism (all men are rapists- all men are complicit in a culture of rape) is part of the Communist "Tabula Rasa's" "Cultural Hegemony" campaign to destroy and re-define the family. You have to wonder who the Communists will attack once this is achieved- Communists never stop attacking- this is the nature of "Permanent Revolution"- there will never be peace. As Orwell said "a boot on the head on everyone forever".

Communists are also saying that (all White People are racists- all White People are complicit in a culture of racist abuse and privilege).

In a sense nature embodies permanent mindless warfare- but one assumes that evolution proceeds towards sanity- humans aren't perfect- they can be animalistic- but they need each other- they need to protect those in their sphere- protecting each other from the chaos outside- and trying to avoid fighting and imposing their will on their neighbours- from these small beginnings improving the world through their example.

Others see chaos as a ladder to success- and are happy to ride over those in their way.

Every culture needs their own country.

Individual's in society have different roles- sometimes they can appear repressive but these roles are necessary for the stability of society- the repression at the destruction of society is surely much greater. Individual's have different strengths and weaknesses- in some senses equality is impossible for this reason- but also in a sense everyone is superior- we all need to find our place- leaders shouldn't waste resources and so they should try to help their people contribute and gain value from society for the benefit of everyone.

As Stiglitz says "no one will participate in a system from which they gain no value".

ttbn, people like you are part of the problem, cover up, denial and victim blaming are your stock in trade. Conservatives really don't see a place in politics for women, and if there is one, its only a subservient roll at best. With the Brittany Higgins case it is now clear she was given a choice, complain, and its your career gone. A second woman has now come forward with a similar complaint.

The culture in the Federal Liberal Party when it comes to female complains, be it bulling or sexual harassment/assault, is to firstly protect the good name of the party, and secondly the protection of the minister concerned through cover up. The victim rates a poor third in the list of priorities, and is made to feel that they are the real problem.

The problem in the Liberal Party is broader than that above. Take the case of Julie Bishop, she thought she could challenge for the top leadership position, a position she was eminently qualified for. Its not the fact Julie was defeated by two men, but the fact her colleagues thought she was only worthy of a token vote, and I say that was because she was female. The insult was too much for Ms Bishop and she walked away from the party.

Pauliar,

I know that you are desperately trying to dismiss the "bad apples" in the greens, but proportionally the Greens are closer to the Catholic Church than the libs, and you are still silent about any actions the greens intend to take over the problems within your party. Business as usual I assume.

As Ms Higgins and the other two alleged victims refused to make a complaint to the police, and the perpetrator had already been fired, it is difficult for Senator Reynolds to take any further action.

As for the appointment of identity groups based on quotas, the greens are not a shining example of resulting competence

Mr uneducated opinion,

You are a lying turd. At no point did I blame the victim.

Pointing out the obvious fact that Senator Reynolds is not an officer of the law and the maximum punishment she can inflict on the alleged rapist is to fire him and to offer support to the victim.

The choice of reporting the crime to the police at the time is entirely up to the victim who in this case chose not to as did the other two complainants. While I sympathise with each of them, the reality is that without video evidence or a witness the police are unable to make a case. This is not a judgement simply a statement of fact

Actually there is no victim until the the complainant is found to have been raped by a court of law. There are now two others claiming to have been raped, the second one 4 years ago. It's a very common story these days; one that is disproved so often; despite help from judges like the one I was reading about the other day who barred a defence lawyer from presenting facts that his client's accuser had a long record of making false claims of or rape. Another thing that encourages complaints is that the complainant is rarely if ever prosecuted for making false accusations.

Greenie,

I have never told you what you can post or not post. You are at liberty to put up as much crap as you wish. Further, disagreeing with you is not censorship. Most people disagree with you. I'm not surprised that you are disinterested in my posts: they are not aimed at people like you.

The usual procedure for an alleged matter of sexual assault, either the victim or a person at the victim's request (including hospital and/or a medical practitioner), report the matter to police, usually with the victim's consent and knowledge. In the case of an aggravated sexual assault, hospital or medical staff can alert police to their strong suspicions of a suspected offence of an aggravated sexual assault. So serious was the offence (called 'aggravated rape') taken in earlier times; it was considered a capital crime, meaning the perpetrator could be sentenced to death in most states of Australia.

In my experience, some women are so traumatised by what occurred; they can often decline to report the crime because they think they may not be believed, or a sense of shame in the mistaken belief, they did in some way, contribute to the crime? And after such a trauma, the victim can hardly be blamed for not thinking clearly. Today most police forces in Oz have a dedicated Sexual Assault Squad, comprising mostly female detectives special trained in the nuances and hazards associated with proving sexual crimes occasioned against women.

The attempt by some on this post to shamelessly victim blame and pull the old magicians trick of 'look over here while I do the dirty stuff" (i.e. the Greens harbor pedophiles so everything's hunky doory) is truly appalling. For ttbn to have his head up his arse and not recognise that politics is involved in this incident simply proves to me my long held theory that all right wing ideologues have had every last visage of compassion and human empathy surgically removed at birth.

Of course politics was involved you moron. Brittany Higgins worked in an environment where loyalty to the party comes before all else - be they cyclones, military coups or rape. And especially as an election was about to be announced. Then of course, we have the totally compassionate ttbn (along with all the other butch, macho men out there) who protest - but she was offered help/police investigation but she refused it, and is only now changing her mind. It's a thing called intimidation via threatening your job and the shock and trauma of the assault guys.

Could it be that the left have recruited this lady, as with others making similar long removed complaints, or is it simply that time changes memory of a night of drunken debauchery, particularly when circumstances change?

But who really cares! I put it in the same category of one labor leader & another deputy leader who went to prison for kiddy fiddling. I never bothered following those cases much, but have wondered if something of the Pell case applied.

Aries54,

Exactly!

They are the sort of people who support judges that tell women who complain about being raped: "No means Yes."

Who was the imbecile who implied that only a judge can ascertain that something happened and someone is telling the truth.

I have a very low opinion of judges and lawyers in general. Fortunately I have had very little contact with the legal profession but what I have had has left me with the opinion that they are low-life scumbags.

But beyond that, has anybody raised the political implications of this matter for Soot's IR reforms? How can we trust Soot to safeguard the nation's workers when he cannot even guarantee the safety of his own staff?

Shonkyminister,

The alleged serial rapist was more than a mere "employee" as you like to portray him as. The fact is he was seen as a rising star within the LIBERAL PARTY, obviously a party member. The rising star worked for no less than 5 MP's, 4 of them ministers, being promoted regularly as a good Liberal for going beyond the call of duty. Its totally incongruous of Morrison to claim the fist he know of the actions of this alleged serial rapist was last week. Considering ministers knew, MP's knew, the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the house knew, staff knew, including those with Morrisons ear, BUT NO ONE TOLD ME. How much time should a born again, happy clapping Christion, do in Purgatory for lying? 10,000 years.

Linda Reynolds is one of the most incompetent of the army of incompetent government ministers. ScumO' will be looking for the earliest opportunity to throw the Ms Useless under the proverbial bus, most likely later this week.

The "we believe you" crowd here are the same as the dangerous idiots - judges, juries and media - who heaped the most shocking injustice ever to occur in this country onto George Pell. You cannot believe anyone who comes up with accusations against men until they are proved beyond reasonable doubt. Reasonable doubt is the core of the rule if law that was blatantly ignored in the Pell case. Without that principle, you may as well skip trials, the onus of proof on the prosecution, and go straight to sentencing. Sadly, disgustingly, that appears to be what the howling mob here would like to see.

I disagree Mr O, true this shodowminister is shifty and shady, but he is shonky as well. This interloper is nothing like the original Shadow Minister, a fine fellow indeed, I found the real SM to be a true Green progressive socialist, a staunch unionist, and a proud Green/Labor voter

A senior staffer in now ex-Liberal Craig Kelly's office is under investigation by police for inappropriate sexual behaviour with women and young girls, some as young as 16. Kelly's office manager the grey haired Frank Zumbo, was responsible for hiring and firing young interns and work experience staff, often young girls. One young girl claims Zumbo kissed her on the neck. Despite a successful AVO against Zumbo, this bloke continues in his roll in Kelly's office.

Claims? There is no shortage of claims, many driven by sick minds and the lure of compensation. Also encouraged by the fact that females proved to be making false claims are never prosecuted.

We don't need you continually reporting on affairs that we can see for ourselves. Your obsessions with this sort of thing are sick.

Not sure if I can post this, as it hasn't been approved by the forums chief censor ttbn, but here goes anyway.

The minister at the centre of the "rape in the office" allegations, Linda Reynolds has been admitted to the Canberra hospital and will take medical leave. Unfortunate Ms Reynolds will have to forgo the opportunity to answer thorny questions at the National Press Club where she was due to appear. Maybe tho hospital visit is to remove the political knife in her back

Paul1405,

I think she is in there to get a sex change.

If you can't beat them, join them.

I see the leading OLO idiot still thinks that having an opinion different from his is censorship.

Nah ttbn, when my options start to vaguely resemble yours its time for me to take the high jump. Why I call you the chief censor, is for example. I put something up about some pervert in some MP's office and you come back with; "We don't need you continually reporting on affairs that we can see for ourselves" , You are attempting to instruct me as to what, or what not I should post. Your form of CENSORSHIP.

Do I tell you to stop putting up dribble about GG's and Chinese New Year, NO! Put up all the boring dribble you like. Anyway the Forum is becoming so boring and uninteresting with a disproportionate number of old farts posting <BORING DRIBBLE>. Many of the sane posters have left or post infrequently, possible hounded away by the chief censor!

Paul1405,

If everything goes successfully with the operation then the next time you see Linda Reynolds in Parliament she will probably have a mustache and a deep voice, be dressed in a pinstriped suit, and be eying female staffers.

It's amazing what they can do with a tarnished image nowadays.

Hi Mr O,

Interesting, the number of politicians who suddenly become mentally ill when things get a bit hot in the kitchen. Barrel's Barilaro the Nationals leader in NSW, suddenly become more mentally deranged than unusual when his Koala Killing legislation was being attacked from all sides. Barrel's had to take sick leave from the parliament and seek psychiatric help. When thing quietened down Barrel's soon returned to his normal level of mental derangement and is now back on deck as per normal.

The Donald and Covid-19, 3 days in the hospital, a bit like Christ 3 days in the tomb. The Donald then immerged as the "Super Donald", fighting fit and ready to take on the world.
