Barnaby Joyce Calls For More Women To Work Under Him

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 11/11/2020 - 7:00am in

Nationals back bencher and aspiring Minister for Home Affairs Barnaby Joyce has called on the Government, of which he is a part of, to work harder to make sure that more women are working under him.

”I have been reflecting recently on where we are at in politics and as I look around Parliament house, I realise that there just aren’t enough women about the place,” said the Member for New England. ”We need fresh blood, women who are ready to roll up their sleeves and get dirty.”

”I am willing to take any aspirational young women under my wing and give them the opportunity to work under me.”

When asked why he all of a sudden had an interest in women in politics, the member for New England said: ”I’ve always had an eye for the ladies and what I saw on the ABC the other night really disturbed me.”

”I mean Porter and Tudge out on the town and no invite for Barnaby?”

”Those guys need to learn a think or two about loyalty. I would have shut up, why didn’t they invite me out to party with their staffers.”

Mitch McConnell and the Hot Seat

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 22/09/2020 - 1:37am in

Both of the last two Republican presidents—Bush and Trump-- have lost the popular vote, and yet each nominated two Supreme Court justices, who have been confirmed by the votes of senators who represent a minority of the American people. The confirmation of a fifth justice in this way will create a solid majority on the court, which can then unwind the legal framework that a majority of Americans still supports. Continue reading

Tales of Love and History - James Ivory in Conversation

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 19/12/2018 - 2:33am in

Oscar-winning American film-maker James Ivory will talk about his experiences with the legendary Merchant Ivory productions, in partnership with producer Ismail Merchant and screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. Merchant Ivory is celebrated for the rich cultural diversity of its films, which are often set in India, France, England and America, and are distinguished by their visual poetry, fiercely egalitarian attitudes, and quiet wit. The conversation will touch on questions about the use of the historical past in Merchant Ivory films, about his own experiences of literary adaptation as both director and writer, and about the representation of love and cultural diversity. As well as films such as A Room with a View (1985) and The Bostonians (1984), the conversation will consider the recently re-released ground-breaking same-sex romance Maurice (1987), whose screen play features in the Ashmolean’s exhibition No Offence. James Ivory will be joined by three outstanding academics, whose research engages with the themes of diversity, equality, inclusivity, love, desire and storytelling that are central to his life’s work. Richard Parkinson is Professor of Egyptology at the University and the author of A Little Gay History: Desire and Diversity Across the World (2013). Katherine Harloe is Associate Professor of Classics at the University of Reading who is currently working on an edition of the love-letter of Johann Joachim Winkelmann. Jennifer Ingleheart is Professor of Classics at the University of Durham, whose most recent book - Masculine Plural - Queer Classics, Sex, and Education - has just been published by Oxford University Press.

There have been some commendable efforts to make assessment of equality a part of TEF, but all in all the results suggest it has been a missed opportunity for real progress, argues Jess Moody.
