Julie Bishop calls Tanya Plibersek a “”bitch” in Parliament!
Australia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Lady Julie Bishop has been caught on camera calling Deputy Leader of the Opposition Tanya Plibersek “a bitch” in Parliament.
In the video from Tuesday’s parliamentary sitting Bishop can be seen uttering the colourful term Ms Plibersek interrupted Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
Plibersek had asked a question about humanitarian aid to Syria but was clearly not happy with Abbott’s response.
Labor MP Nick Champion told The Gutter Trash that Bishop definitely said it.
“Oh come on. Well what do you think the foreign minister is saying about Tanya Plibersek?” he said.
Bishop and Plibersek have long endured a tempestuous relationship, with the Foreign Minister recently accusing Plibersek of supporting a “terrorists’ picnic” in Syria.
Plibersek had argued that Australia’s assistance should primarily be “humanitarian”.
“I was shocked to learn that the Deputy Leader of the Opposition has broken ranks and is now attacking government policy on the fight against terrorism,” Julie Bishop told Parliament.
“The member for Sydney wants Australia’s Defence Forces to cease the air strikes against Daesh (Islamic State) and she wants our fighter jets to drop food hampers over Syria. And guess who’ll end up feasting on them? A terrorists’ picnic.”
Plibersek hit back at Bishop’s accusation describing the suggestion she had advocated for food hampers as a “pathetic lie”.
It’s all part of the Adult Government.
