Victorian Attorney General Jill Hennessy has unexpectedly resigned from the cabinet using the standard line of wanting to spend more time with family. We will look at some of this whole lotta woman’s achievements.
The Hennessy timeline reads like standard Vic Labor Socialist Left faction stuff:
- Catholic high school in leafy Mount Waverley
- Arts/Law at Monash
- lawyercunting personal injury claims
- handed a safe seat because vagina
With all that working class cred about her the seat of Altona in western Melbourne, not the most fashionable of suburbs by far, was a perfect fit, and the motley assortment of peoples who live there dutifully and regularly gave their blonde white woman queen saviour at least 50% of the primary vote, about 65% two party preferred.
As both Health minister and Attorney General she focused on enabling and streamlining the state killing machine, at both ends of life:
- Safe access zones for abortion clinics – preventing anyone from protesting anywhere near abortion mills
- Euthanasia legalising – the bureaucratically halal killing of old sick people
On euthanasia, even a not insignificant minority of her own party, including Deputy Premier James Merlino, were very much opposed to it, but for Jill, whether babies or the old, the killing has to go on.
Her final legacy, in absentia now largely, is going to be denying homosexuals from getting the help they need with their affliction, aka the proposed gay conversion therapy ban. This law entails that if a Christian homosexual asked people in a church to pray for him, to help him reform himself or resist unwanted urges, or whatever, then those people praying could end up in jail for it. Hennessy refused to meet with or discuss anything with church leaders.
To be fair, and we can’t help trying to be fair and probably need to stop it, she did some useful things, like criminalising the underpaying of workers, or “wage theft”, by employers. The de-criminalising of public drunkenness, which was done with Aborigines in mind of course, is a mixed bag sort of thing in that police would often abuse the power this law gave them – if you took one wrong step when walking at night then you were drunk, and they had you. But no one wants to see obnoxious roaring drunk people staggering around the streets.
Finally, if people like this woman didn’t breed it would be bearable, as whatever mutations they have would die out, but they do:
