Bob Hawke on Tanya Plibersek

Recommended Posts

I'd say Tanya is the best judge of whether or not she has the time and energy.

 

Bob Hawke is a dinosaur and needs to contemporise.

To say he's a dinosaur suggests his views on mothers are prehistoric. I don't know if they are.

 

I suspect he's verbalising what many people believe.

Silly old bugger.... but I digress - I think Tanya can manage it. She is good at 'managing' her personal life.

$5 mil won't get much harbourside. Bondi Junction maybe.

hi Bondi

 

That's the second time you've mentioned this payout - would you mind providing a link from a reputable outlet for it (in this instance I will accept the Australian!)? I havent heard about it and i am intrigued. thanks!

If you mean joining EB and continuing to post, then many agree.

Then many people need to contemporise.

 

Bondi- don't you have a rip to get caught in or something?

I'm interested too bondi - I've done some googling and your posts here are the only relevant results.

 

Would Hawke be OK if her hubby stayed home to care for the kids instead?

Maybe someone doesn't know the difference between ministerial staffers and Ministers?

yeh - I suspect that's the case. If it is, it's highly misleading and defamatory, but anyway, I will await his reply.

Sexism can cross the political divide, then.

 

I would like to see Tanya Plibersek as Labor Leader. She's always struck me as someone who is above all the ridiculous carry-on of the past few years. Whereas Bill Shorten has been immersed in it.

But seriously

As a former minister who entered parliament in 1998, it is conceivable she would get a very sizeable parliamentary pension or payout when she leaves but it's no different to any other MP who entered before the 2007 election. Howard closed off the system for new MPs after that

$5 million ? a link, a link - anyone got a link. I did ask nicely.

F.E.B.E

$5 million divided amongst many staff whose contracts were terminated is completely different to $5 million to an individual.

 

I have removed the original statement as it is inaccurate and possibly defamatory.

Thanks Amber. Is it too much to ask that Bondi get a warning?

We don't disclose when warning points are given Becky but yes that was a breach of forum rules.

I missed the bits of inaccuracy and defamation that were removed.

 

But what's with the "managing"? What do you mean?

OK. Thanks Amber.

 

I am just sad that a thread was derailed which was supposed to be about how great Tanya is, how old fashioned Bob is, and how Shorten gets a different treatment.

 

But then derailing threads is a tactic to put women down I suppose.

Urgh. the scary thing is that as a PP said, no doubt there are plenty of people who would agree with him, including, I suspect a majority of the new front bench :(
