Liberal Club 2008 Canberra Trip

Posted by Atilla89 on May 14, 2008

Tomorrow I will be heading off with a dozen members of the Liberal Club to Canberra where we will meet with a few MPs and listen to the Budget Reply Speech. We will be meeting the following MP’s:

  1. Bronwyn Bishop
  2. Alex Hawke

We will also meet the Senator, The Hon. Eric Abetz at a cocktail party. We will be meeting a few other people involved in Liberal think tanks such as Menzies Research Centre, Philosophical Underpinnings of the Centre Right and International Developments and the Centre Right. I also intend to ask MP Bishop this question:

“In 2005 you spoke about banning head scarves in public schools where headscarves are not part of the school uniform. You spoke to Radio National, specifically Terry Lane about women enjoying freedom in Australia as opposed to living under Sharia law. If that is the case, why are you against women who want to wear a headscarf (for religious reasons) at public schools?”

Hopefully I will be able to remember her answer to write it down for this blog. Plenty of pictures to follow!
