Well we have just heard from John Setka and his wive Emma Walters.
The ALP, Anthony Albanese and the Murdoch media should hang their heads in shame on the Rosie Batty issue.
John and Emma admit they have had personal issues that face every couple and that John has some issues to face in the future .
But the cowardice of Albanese to expel Setka without hearing his side is breathtaking .
Setka claims he never said anything disparaging about Batty in fact he holds her in the highest regard and admires the work she has done.
That the ALP and to a lesser extent the ACTU would hang him out to dry over malicious comments he never said and support the Murdoch press says more about them than Setka .
It’s like the old adage give him a fair trial and then hang him !
It’s indicative of the ALP to kowtow to the media and expel a union leader for comments he never made .
Albanese on this issue has been as tough as the skin on a rice custard.
Setka will front the court on other issues and intends to plead guilty but on the Rosie Batty issue Albanese and the ALP have displayed a severe lack of intestinal fortitude.
