Put up or shut up, acts PM

4BC Mornings: Prime Minister Julia Gillard has batted opposition questions on the AWU matter in parliament, by referring to answers she gave at a 50-minute media conference before question time.

Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop opened question time on Monday by asking Ms Gillard why she provided legal advice to AWU officials Ralph Blewitt and Bruce Wilson to establish the Australian Workers' Union Reform Association, in contravention of union rules.

"I have just dealt with this precise question at a press conference," Ms Gillard told parliament.

Liberal frontbencher Bronwyn Bishop then raised a point of order, saying Ms Gillard did not deserve to be prime minister if she thought questions by journalists substituted for questions by members.

Ms Gillard belittled the interjection, saying she had just had one of those "ultra-secret things" called a press conference.

"That's what you do: you call a press conference in front of the full press gallery and conduct it for the best part of an hour if you don't want people to know what you said," Ms Gillard joked.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Exactly wal1957,
    She is a compulsive liar , has lied throughout her appointment and now she expects me to believe her now.
    Integrity and Honesty is best shown thrugh deeds.

  • If Julia is so bad, why is Abbott still trailing her woefully as preferred PM? Australians aren't stupid. If there was anything to these AWU claims, charges would have been laid. Here's hoping both sides lift their game in the New Year.

  • Juliar has still NOT anwered the questions! They are all pretty basic, a simple yes or no would suffice.
    That she continually avoids giving any answer only leads to one very simple conclusion!
    Guilty...of something.
    The vile rhetoric that spews from her mouth on a daily basis is an absolute disgrace... and she is our Prime Mistress?
    I don't hold any of our pollies in high regard.
    If you want my respect...earn it!
    But Juliar really is a piece of work!
    HONESTY, INTEGRITY and SINCERITY... Three very important words, none of which apply to Gillard!
    If KRUDD isn't sharpening the knives over Christmas, I know nothing!

  • Rich, so your reality TV show would be called "Dodge, Weave, Avoid" (DWA) or...Don't Want Abbott!,,TTFN

  • Wonder who will be gone over the Christmas break - Abbott or Bishop.
    Both misleading Parliament, both refusing to apologise.
    Young Julia will destroy both of them next year if either survives.

    Bob Lord Thursday 29 November, 2012 - 8:17 PM
  • Gillard does not have the capacity or intelligence to answer a direct question with a direct answer.
    One of the traits of a weak leader I suppose.
    Maybe she could pilot a new reality show.
    Dodge, Weave, Avoid
