As I tuned past the Parliamentary channel I saw Mallard getting the
Evidently its okay for the Speaker to malign, slander and libel some-one
under Parliamentary privilege without redress.\
If he has evidence of the claimed sexual assault he should go to the
police and make his claims outside Parliament.
And when he gets sued it should be him who has to pay and not the tax payer.
Apparently the PM has 'serious concerns' about his conduct.
Why she cannot describe him as a bully is beyond me, and that is mild when
considering his recent behaviour.
Politics is dirty and this is as bad as it gets.
This is another instance that reinforces the PM as incapable or
unwilling to make the hard decisions. Mallard is not only a dick but
a total liability to Labour, yet he remains as Speaker. What will it
take to get him removed? The answer at present is a criminal
conviction. Normally this would be an absurd idea, but Mallard would
be capable of pulling it off.
If there is no-one else in the Labour caucus of 65 that is willing and
capable to serve as Speaker, I am sure National or ACT would be happy
to assist the PM in replacing Mallard as Speaker.
