Outrageous Greens diminish the Senate: Bernardi

November 30, 2018

Parliament descended into farce this week, with Australia’s politicians accusing each other of hurling personal and sometimes sexist abuse across the Senate chamber - blame for which, Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi has laid squarely at the feet of the Greens Party.

The spat started on Wednesday afternoon, when the LNP’s Barry O’Sullivan made mention of Greens Senator, Sarah Hanson-Young's (pictured) failure to attend committee hearings.

“She didn’t turn up. There’s a bit of Nick Xenophon in her, and I don’t mean that to be a double reference, but there’s a bit of Xenophon in her,” Senator O’Sullivan said.

Greens leader Richard Di Natale shouted across the chamber in response, calling Mr O’Sullivan “a grub” and “an absolute pig”.

“He’s a disgrace,” a furious Mr Di Natale yelled.

Senator O’Sullivan said no double entendre was intended by the remark and promptly withdrew it. Senator Di Natale refused to withdraw his abuse of Senator O'Sullivan, and was suspended from the Senate for the rest of the day as punishment.

Senator Hanson-Young then pointed the finger at Senators O’Sullivan, Anning, Leyonhjelm and Senator Bernardi for allegedly targeting her with a “pattern” of abuse.

Senator Bernardi has told Tom Connell on Sky News, Senator O'Sullivan's double entendre was clearly unintentional but the Greens knee-jerk reaction to it was typical of their constant, crushingly politically correct virtue signalling.
