Why were people so critical of Julia Gillard when she lied about the carbon tax, was it because she was a woman and men don’t like the idea of women leaders?

It stands out because Tony Abbott has lied nine times, as stated in the federal parliament by the opposition and by political commentators through the media, yet on talk-back radio shows and by comments made by readers through letters to the editor columns, there is very little criticism of his lies.

It stands out that if you are a woman politician you will be criticised and ridiculed because of gender prejudice.

Is it because of the jealousy that men have when women prove that they are capable of doing their work or are they frightened of women who possess leadership qualities?

  1. The mind boggles ! Abbott is so phoney, so insincere, his lies so transparent . . how is it possible that he and his equally inept “team” could begin to imagine his back flips/modifications/appeasements will be believed by anyone ???

    • No one I know likes him or the way he ‘runs this country’. I can’t wait to see him go. One of the worst PM’s we have ever had. I find it very frustrating that he will get the PM pension package after he gets canned and live a life of luxury even though he did no good for Australia. It’s a big rort.
