Culture of Bullying

“I have seen and witnessed and experienced some appalling behaviour in parliament, the kind of behaviour that 20 years ago when I was managing partner of a law firm of 200 employees I would never have accepted".
- Julie Bishop

Would that be the same law firm that deliberately dragged out cases of asbestos victims so that many of them died before having their cases heard?

Look it's great that MPs are finally speaking out against bullying in parliament, but Julie Bishop said nothing when she was deputy leader of the Liberal party for ten and a half years, during which time we've witnessed some of the worst bullying in Australian political history.

If you want to change a culture of bullying you need to speak up every time, not just when you become the victim instead of the perpetrator.
