There was a bizarre interview with Gillard government minister Bill Shorten on the Sky News Agenda program today.
Shorten repeatedly claimed to support whatever Gillard had said, even though he didn’t know what she said.
Shorten appears to have moved away from whole-hearted support for Speaker Peter Slipper’s decision to stand aside pending resolution of travel expenses claims against him. However, Prime Minister Gillard has remained steadfast in defending Slipper’s decision to step down pending resolution of the criminal allegations but not the civil claim of sexual harassment.
Shorten appeared on Agenda at 4pm today.
