Roxon on Abbott and capable women
Nicola Roxon says the government won't back down in its criticism of Tony Abbott, who she maintains has an "issue with capable women". Paul Murray takes her to task for criticism of the Opposition Leader.
Stay up to date on breaking news with 2UE on Twitter
Mr Abbott's wife Margie faced the media last week to defend her husband against what he says are continued personal attacks on his character by federal Labor, targeting his attitude towards women.
The government's campaign gained traction last month when Mr Abbott was accused of intimidating a female student council rival at university 30 years ago by punching the wall beside her head.
Ms Roxon denied ever calling the opposition leader misogynistic, but insisted he had a problem with women.
She said he routinely turned his back on her in parliament and refused to acknowledge her at social events, unlike other coalition MPs. (AAP)
Public servants say today's half-day strike has sent a strong message, that State Government budget cuts are not acceptable. Paul Murray with State Political Reporter Derek Peterson on further strikes ahead.
The Two Murrays discuss the father of four sisters forcibly removed from their mother in Australia this week, who has broken his silence, calling for privacy to allow the girls to adjust to being back in Italy.
@James, quite true and I don't think Paul Murray tries to hide it. He said on his show today that he likes Abbott's "policy" on reducing the deficit, pretending that Abbott's intention was his policy. He also said he liked Abbott's policy on paid maternity. I like the idea too, the only thing is, Abbott himself does not say much about it, maybe because it is only half-baked. There is no detail there and crucially, no plan on how it would be funded.
Yes, you are right, Murray does act like Abbott's spokesman, but I have no problem with that, if only he had not described himself as someone from the "middle-ground".Terrence Thursday 11 October, 2012 - 5:36 PM
The word "misogynist these days has evolved into a shaming tactic used whenever someone fairly criticises the double standards modern feminism espouses (ie pushing for violence against women awareness while trivialising and diminishing awareness of [domestic] violence against men along the same argumentative lines that would have feminists out on the streets if used against battered women). The fact is that where misogynist used to mean "man who hates women" it has now been so thoroughly hijacked and misapplied that it now means "man who women hate" and by extension "man who refuses to see himself as a mere 'penis on legs' or intrinsically expendable because of it".
But then as Ms Gillard provided an additional demonstration of yesterday; taking mature and adult accountability for errors is to modern feminists, as Kryptonite is to Superman.Andrew Richards Thursday 11 October, 2012 - 1:08 PM
Paul Murray must be congratulated for some balance on his show today even if it might have been inadvertent. He was trying to explore the semantics of the word misoginy in trying to show that it might have been misplaced on Tony Abbott. It turned out this lady (sorry did not get her name) was quite clear in her understanding of misoginy and sexism and gave all indications that the label was not quite off the mark on Abbott. To his credit Paul did not pursue the matter too much.
This is the first time I have seen one of Abbott's strong backers try to have some balance on their show and for that he should be thanked. I don't mind if a presenter supports a particular party or politician but there has to be some attempt at least to have a logical rather than emotive discussion. Today was the first time I heard something like that on Paul's show.Terrence Wednesday 10 October, 2012 - 11:20 PM
Hmmmn. Can someone in either Madame Roxon's office or in the now defunct damned labor party have a gentle word with her and tell her that her handling of the rotter, Peter Slipper and the disgraceful issues relative to him and this failed labor government is more than egg on her, Roxon's face. And while at it, tell her to wash her damned hair!Sam Tuesday 9 October, 2012 - 8:25 PM
It is obviously impossible, even to the most stupid person, to ever have sexism in a Labor/Green's gender neutral society!! Put your Joker sexism card back into your pack of dirty tricks...JULIAR & NICOLA Tuesday 9 October, 2012 - 5:45 PM
Totally ashamed to be Australian when Parlliament votes to keep Peter Slipper as Speaker.
What kind of men and women do we have in government for this to happen. Anyone who voted to keep him should be voted out at the next election. We want people of good character in Parliament.Chris Tuesday 9 October, 2012 - 4:29 PM
