Defence Minister Marise Payne has a funny idea of political impartiality

Defence Minister Marise Payne on the proposed Western Australian National’s fundraiser at HMAS Stirling:

“Defence facilities should not be used for political fundraising purposes and it is regrettable that the original invitation was issued.”

Defence Minister Marise Payne on Captain Mona Shindy and her official Royal Australian Navy Twitter account that attacked the Australian Liberty Alliance and Tony Abbott:

Defence Minister Marise Payne said Captain Shindy was “an outstanding Australian” who had served the country “with ­distinction”.

Ms Payne said the navy continued to develop an “effective and engaging” social media strategy and Defence was committed to increasing cultural diversity among serving members to better reflect Australian society.

The Defence Minister has asked that we judge her on her performance and not her gender. She’s making that job easy.
