Gillard Must Confront The Past

August 21, 2012

There are two distinct and entrenched viewpoints on the Gillard/Wilson saga in Canberra’s Press Gallery, as well as the public at large, and they tend to reflect the general ideological divide. The Prime Minister is either a sinister thief bullying the media into submission, or a twenty-first century version of Joan of Arc, hounded by an evil patriarchy led by Murdoch drones.

Despite her protestations that the matter is irrelevant to the conduction of her duties, it is relevant to he character and thus to her fitness to be Australia’s head of government. These issues could be put to rest, at least politically, if the PM were to make her case to the Parliament, including, if possible, financial records of the period in question. Continuing to dismiss these allegations as a conspiracy theory dreamt up by misogynists is insufficient for someone in her position.
