Bishop shows her true colours - and they're red and green!

March 08, 2019

Former foreign minister Julie Bishop has endorsed calls for companies bidding for a share of the federal government's $50 billion annual procurement spend to be required to meet gender equality targets.

The Conservative Party sees this as revealing the WA MP's true political colours. Today gender targets but what next? Racial and then Rainbow targets? The Leftist push for identity politics-based quotas, where identity trumps merit, is just one more example of socialist insanity.

The Australian Financial Review reports, preparing to leave parliament at the May election, the Liberal Party's first female deputy leader told an event in Perth that criteria about gender equality and female participation could be added to contract terms for taxpayer-funded spending, also calling for federal government departments and agencies to be required to report data publicly.

The federal government's extensive procurement rules were updated in January and cover value for money, ethical behaviour and reporting requirements.

Political correctness and identity politics have infected every aspect of our lives and it's only going to get worse according to Daily Telegraph columnist Miranda Devine.

Miranda called out the creeping cultural Marxism in her key-note address as a guest speaker at last year's inaugural Queensland Conservative Party conference and says it should come as no surprise as its tentacles are spreading everywhere.
