The Free Speech Union calls on Parliament to remove Trevor Mallard as Speaker.
OPINION: Last week, the Free Speech Union launched a petition calling on Parliament to remove Trevor Mallard as Speaker of the House which has already collected thousands of signatures. A motion of no confidence in the Speaker had already been laid for his ‘childish, provocative and embarrassing behaviour’ but our concerns are more limited, and more serious.
The Speaker’s decision to turn on sprinklers and to blare painful music to undermine the morale of the protestors is clearly questionable. His reference to them as ‘ferals’ is surely unhelpful.
