It is now being revealed that Tony Abbott tried to remove president of the Australian Human Rights Commission Gillian Triggs shortly before she presented her report which is critical of the government’s treatment of children on Nauru.
This heavy-handed bullying of the head of an independent commission is an affront to democracy in Australia. It smacks of the the totalitarianism of the worst kinds of political despots.
Abbott and his minions should hang their heads in shame over this incident.
Hardly a day goes by now without Abbott demonstrating his total unfitness for public office.
