Australia: Must not mention that women still do most of the household budgeting

Senior Liberals were privately aghast when the Prime Minister nominated repealing the carbon tax as his "biggest achievement" for women because they are "particularly focused on the household budget".

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop was forced to defend Tony Abbott's latest gender-related gaffe as Labor lashed the Prime Minister as "stuck in the past".

Mr Abbott was asked to name his biggest achievement as the Minister for Women during an appearance on the Nine Network's Today program. "Well, you know, it is very important to do the right thing by families and households. As many of us know, women are particularly focused on the household budget and the repeal of the carbon tax means a $550-a-year benefit for the average family," he said.

Oh dear. The truth is not allowed.

The truth is no defense against hyperventilating idealogues who don't give a darn about women's issues but only want to acquire political power and see their opponents lose.

Liberals with their walnut sized brains find it too hard to think it gives them migranes

The loaded question was asked by a leftie journalist so of course the left went of their trolley about it.
