Lunch with Natasha Stott Despoja: Pushing to end domestic violenceNatasha Stott Despoja hopes she will soon be out of a job. Because that means the scourge of domestic violence against women would have been defeated. Well done, about time someone us talking about disgusting toxic men, all men are evil until proven innocent, this should be done weekly at the least because men forget quickly, because women are just better at stuff. Men reeducation camps would be good too She'll be right, she enjoys a massive government pension courtesy of us grateful taxpayers.
