He then appeared on Sky News Australia. Senator Leyonhjelm, who works for you and I, sat on the panel of ‘Outsiders‘ and said Senator Hanson-Young was “well known for liking men” and “rumours about her in Parliament are well known”.
We can all breathe a sigh of relief that our public representatives truly are talking about the stuff that matters in Parliament.
It is as though our politicians are desperate to be characters on a reality television show none of us agreed to watch. The vicious personal attacks, the name calling, and the interrogation of what one does in their private lives is something voters never asked for.
Senator Sarah Hanson-Young demands an apology. Post continues.
One day after Senator Leyonhjelm’s comments in the Senate, retired AFL-star Barry Hall joined three other commentators on Triple M for Melbourne’s pre-game coverage.
Presenter Leigh Montagna, also a former AFL player, began telling the story of how his wife, Erinn Byrne, was undergoing a procedure by an obstetrician to help induce labour. Another man on the panel ‘joked’ that he’d heard the obstetrician was good looking, before Hall made an entirely inappropriate sexual remark that Mamamia has deemed unsuitable to publish.
Hall was sacked before the program ended.
Head of content at Triple M, Mike Fitzpatrick released a statement that said: “Tonight on Triple M Football there were unacceptable and inappropriate comments made by a member of the commentary team.
“The commentator was removed immediately from the broadcast and an apology was issued on air afterwards. Immediate action was taken with the termination of employment for one team member.”
