If the electoral boundaries hadn’t changed, then I would have been in Gladys Liu’s seat. Then again, if the boundaries hadn’t changed, it might not have been Gladys Liu’s seat because, with the same boundaries, she may not have won! We can speculate all day but one thing’s for certain, Gladys was elected under a free and democratic electoral process.
OK, there was that brouhaha where a message was written in Chinese telling people that the only way to cast a valid vote was to vote Liberal… The fact that it had a purple background like the AEC was simply because the person responsible for printing had purple/blue colour blindness and to suggest that it was a deliberate strategy to mislead voters was quite frankly a disgusting smear and quite racist. There’s no evidence and any attempt to investigate and find evidence is an insult to the billion Chinese on the planet because no other races have ever been investigated for printing misleading material in Chinese…
Now some members of the Labor Party have tried to suggest that Gladys was a member of an organisation which seeks to spread Chinese propaganda just because her name was on the list of people in that organisation. As she explained in an interview, she has no memory of being in such an organisation and, in any case, she’s resigned from it. Clearly, the Labor Party are being racist by even suggesting that such an explanation doesn’t stand up to scrutiny and this deserves further investigation. But who would investigate this? The security forces are busy raiding the homes and offices of journalists so they don’t have time to waste on this witch hunt.
Obviously, the only reason Labor have gone after her is because she’s a Chinese Australian. Penny Wong wouldn’t be attacking an Australian Australian like this. How is Gladys expected to remember every organisation she’s been an honorary president of? As Arthur Sinodinos said to ICAC, how am I expected to remember my role in every $250,000 job I have.
And anyway, it’s quite likely that her name was added to the organisation without her knowledge by Matt Canavan’s mum.
I think Peter Dutton said it best when he said that he and Morrison were defending her and, if you had people like our PM and him defending you, then clearly you haven’t done anything wrong.
No, it’s clear that the only reason that Labor are hostile is because she’s raised a million dollars for Liberal Party. That’s even more than Channel 9. That’s the reason for their racist attack. If they really wanted to do something worthwhile why don’t they tell Dan Andrews to get on with the East/West link or do something about those African gangs?
