Oh yay, the Prime Minister I didn’t vote for, whose misogynistic leanings are well-documented has barreled teh Ladeez doozie this week.
Whilst unveiling his ministry today, Tony Abbott revealed that of the 42 spots in the executive, only six will be women. And in a Cabinet of 19 there will be only one woman.
We make up around half the population bro! Are you telling me you Libs didn’t have hardly ANY good ones?
“I’m obviously disappointed there aren’t more women in Cabinet,” Mr Abbott said. “Nevertheless there are some very good and talented women knocking on the door.”
Oh goodie. Now will you please let us The Fuck in?
