Heffo has done it again. Apparently Gilliard isn't fit to be a deputy PM because she has chosen not to have children.
LIBERAL Senator Bill Heffernan says he stands by comments that Labor Deputy Leader Julia Gillard is not qualified to lead the country because she is deliberately "barren".
In an interview with The Bulletin magazine to be published tomorrow, the New South Wales senator and Prime Minister John Howard's right-hand man stands by the controversial remarks he made about Ms Gillard last year.
He also repeats his comments that priests should be permitted to marry because they, "like the rest of us, wake up with a horn at four in the morning".
But Senator Heffernan concedes he was uncouth when he said Ms Gillard had no idea what life was about because she had no children.
"I won't walk away from that," Senator Heffernan tells the magazine.
"So rude, crude and unattractive as it was ... If you're a leader, you've got to understand your community.
"One of the great understandings in a community is family, and the relationship between mum, dads and a bucket of nappies."
Ms Gillard could become deputy prime minister if Labor wins the federal election this year.
Heffo is of course the same prize nob who under parliamentary privilege claimed Justice Kirby cruised for rent boys in his govie car [he was wrong] then, when addressing the press on the issue, ran off down the corridor hooting as the press ran after him.
Fucking hell what a giant tool. I respect much of the stuff he's done, and some of the stuff he stands for. But he's at the end of the day still a bigoted homophobic misogynistic twat with a major need of a sit down with the realities of gender and sexual identity explained to him in no uncertain terms.
To say you can't be a politician unless you've had a family is the same argument some nobs have used for saying you can't talk about terrorism or corrective services laws unless you have children because you don't know what it is to feel fear as a parent.
Fucking hell. Loon.
