In the wake of last night’s Triggs vs Bishop stoush on QandA, TBS wants to know your thoughts.
In the murky depths of the Death Arena that is QandA, Speaker of the House Bronwyn Bishop decided to let it all hang out, calling out Human Rights Commission President Gillian Triggs, on the timing of a Report her office released as the Abbott Government came to power, ostensibly calling for her resignation, live on TV;
BB: “There is a time, and I think Gillian recognises it, that as a statutory officer you have to decide whether you’re a statutory officer, or whether you wish to say, ‘I want to be part of the political debate’ and stand for office and run to become part of that political process.”
Gillian Triggs fired back a trite nah, stating the laws-the-law, and the content is political, before dropping the bomb;
GT: “Were I to receive frequent praise from the Government, I think the Australian people would have a good reason to ask for my resignation”
Beyond the rapturous sea of applause, both claimed Victory. But we want to know, who actually did?
TBS Readers, let us know. And show your work.
