Liberal MP Gladys Liu appears to have been “naive rather than disloyal” and a “political babe-in-the-woods rather than crassly self-serving” like former Labor senator Sam Dastyari, Sky News host Peta Credlin says based “on the evidence so far”. The embattled Liberal MP is under pressure to resign following revelations she was a member of three organisations linked to the Chinese Communist Party. Ms Credlin noted it’s “still early days”, but “to the best of our knowledge” Ms Liu never pocketed Chinese money for her personal use nor has she directly contradicted government policy on the South China Sea.

What a fanatically blinded alt right wing nut job she is. An 'honorary' member ? Don't think so ! I expect this sort of infantile rationalisation from Credlin. Gladys might have so imagined, but she was wrong. Even Credlin knows that SLSC sponsorship is not the equal of a Chinese Givernment lobby. The tweet from Credlin is how auspol SkyNews treats a Liberal MP with connections to the Chineese government, nothing to see here, as expected. Liberal sycophants SkyNews 'Panel' investigate an ALP MP and find his conduct is... 'an act of treason'.
One rule for the Liberals and another for others. Another Communist party sympathiser - Peta Credlin. Sniff test on this is peaking at 10 out of 10 and nothing to see here. We want better caliber individuals for out MP’s don’t we? She is a corrupt grub, just like Sam. Owned She’s certainly a bigot, but naive? No. The woman had Chinese language signs made up for her polling booths that copied the AEC branding. Her campaign deliberately misdirected voters. She’s as slippery as a Liberal Party handshake.
Only she did not say that when Sam Dastyari was the target. If Gladys Lui had any level of propriety she would resign just like Sam did. Little wonder Australians have lost faith in politicians So not disclosing that membership at pre-selection? Not disclosing donation of $40,000. What has any of that got to do with race.
So why not register your participation as you would Surf club or rotary ?
Gladys Liu fails to dispel links to Chinese communist party | Sky News AustraliaLiberal MP Gladys Liu has failed to explain why her name appeared on documents from a council with connections to Chinese political influence operations. \n\nMs Liu is being scrutinised over alleged links to the Communist Party of China. \n\nSpeaking to Sky News host Andrew Bolt, Ms Liu denied being a member of the council or being a mouthpiece for the party and refused to condemn Beijing's actions in the South China Sea. \n\nShe also evaded questions about what she thought of Chinese President Xi Jinping as a dictator and said it was not a question for her to answer. \n\nMs Liu said she was focused on serving her seat of Chisholm in Victoria. \n\nLabor Senator Penny Wong condemned Ms Lui’s interview and called it a “test” for Prime Minister Scott Morrison.\n\nImage: News Corp Australia\n Denial is always the first line of defence! Simple. LIU She is a big liar. We want her testify in front of parliamentary committees or Royal Commission. PM must act now.
Credlin grasping at false comparisons. auspol Funny how different the narrative is for Peta, depending on the perp Yup Well said Peta. Thought the red under the bed mentality died along time ago. Labour just bitter she defeated their star candidate and spoke her mind about gay marriage mortally offending the leftist mob.
Hahahaha it's amazing how far a liberal apologist propaganda tool like credlin will go to excuse corruption when it's the liberals 😂 😂 😂 Credlin deserves a Rolex for that I wonder if this is another Turnbull leak LiberalAus Nothing he does would surprise me Bullshit! 💩 The hypocrisy around the GladysLiu issue from the Libs & their supporters is just astounding! When a similar issue hit Labor, calls for resignations flew thick and fast!
Some perspective from Peta Credlin and Gareth Evans instead of useless carping. Sort of like being a nice guy in the Mafia
Gladys Liu backflips on claims she has no ties to Chinese influence groups | Sky News AustraliaLiberal backbencher Gladys Liu has backflipped on claims she was not a member of any groups linked to Chinese foreign interference operations or the country’s Communist Party, less than 24 hours after she denied the accusations live on Sky News.\n\n“I can tell you I cannot recall [the council membership] as is reported from 2003 to 2015 … if I can’t recall I can’t be an active member of that council,” Ms Liu told host Andrew Bolt on Tuesday night. \n\n“How can you not recall a membership of 12 years?” he replied.\n\nNow the member for Chisholm has backflipped on her comments, confirming her ties with the Australian Jiangmen General Commercial Association and the United Chinese Commerce Association of Australia.\n\nMs Liu also admitted to holding a former honorary role with the Guangdong Overseas Exchange Association, which reportedly has ties to a propaganda arm of the Chinese Communist Party that works to influence foreign governments. \n\nImage: News Corp Australia Sack her. WTF
What a load of rubbish. She has lost the plot According to Sky News.... Australia’s political class are, as a species, invariably dumb. Stop publishing bullshit. FollowTheMoney Thank you for the explanation Peta, always so helpful and supportive of the LNP. Clearly ASIO’s advice was wrong. Then why did GladysLiuMP flat out deny being a member? She would only lie if there was something she wanted to hide.
PCKJ3627 We shouldn’t pass judgement on this case based on the Bolt interview (interrogation). We have to wait till there’s a proper investigation. Peta Credlin is one of the few with integrity. I’d listen to her before anyone else. Yes, yes, yes, you'd say that about Sam Dastyari wouldn't you
Under pressure to explain China links, Gladys Liu cuts Chinese business tiesLiberal MP Gladys Liu says she will conduct an audit of her membership of Chinese community groups, as she faces pressure over alleged links to Chinese government-linked groups. Wouldn't it be better for Victoria police to do the audit independent of the federal government? GladysLiuMP She will do her own audit? Are we expected to take that seriously? What !! Conduct and audit , what a fool we have in parliament if she does not know which is utter rubbish she like many are avoiding this issue she is influenced by BJ totally
Oh Stop it credlin, you're killing me! Poor Andrew Hastie, he actually thought the libs stood for something: good old fashioned xenophobia. Sorry bro, they are just soulless capitalists. You got the cash, yer in. Lol. Communists, fascists, whatevs. 'a surf club patron'....sure Peta....'equivalent' to pigs will fly...it's amazing how you can give the benefit of doubt when it comes to the (major) shortcomings on the LNP side....even when you have a CCP 'operative' (equivalent) in your beloved party's midst
If a surf club was a Chinese communist organisation run by a dictatorial president for life then yeah sure. Credlin clutching at straws again. What about a scheming duplicitous opportunist? What complete bullshit from PetaCretin! Stop trying to defend the indefensible! auspol I feel like someone is gaslighting me.
I well remember the unseemly haste in which her “boss” Tony pushed through that “historic” FTA with China. Maybe a few skeletons in the closet, pet. Stupid reply in this case. Wow... that a big stretch.
Liberal MP Gladys Liu denies links to Chinese governmentThe federal Liberal MP says she 'cannot recall' whether she was a member of Beijing-linked groups and refused to call the Chinese President 'a dictator'. rharris334 rharris334 Impossible to not remember. She is trying to save face. Dig deeper and remove her from parliament rharris334 “YUM CHA” SPY IN DISGUISE 👏👏👏
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣What Completely Disingenuous Bullshit! Credlin should change her first name to Cyclops. He also had One Eye! Sure. What is Peta smoking? Why would a “Honkie”, now resident in Aus, align herself with mainland communist party groups? sunriseon7 3AWNeilMitchell MichaelSukkarMP LiberalAus LiberalVictoria theheraldsun theboltreport smh theage HonTonyAbbott 2GB873 AlanJones 9NewsAUS frankelly08 auspol
Protecting numbers over The Nation And .... high calibre members in the Libs Membership not the problem. Her inability to agree with simple facts about CCP is the problem...normalising the sort of timidity that will get us all enslaved down the track. Credlin is one biased liberal propaganda mouthpiece if this was a labour member watch her and her mates on sky after dark have a meltdown
Peta Credlin is disgustingly immoral who has no place lecturing anyone. She called Zali Steggel a 'cancer'. Just think about that. Rubbish and Credlin knows it. i see some shit like scomo's take on the national security table, and yet i wonder how does one make water cooler talk. often you hear about Australia/ new Zealand being microcosm mirror images of each other. an apt analogy. but Australia / Vladivostok. Say what..word to mumble
'Grubby smear': PM slams Gladys Liu attack as 'insult' to Chinese-AustraliansBreaking: Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called the attack on Gladys Liu a 'grubby smear' and an insult to Chinese-Australians. He's going the 'racism' defence then? Sounds awfully similar to the Frydenberg issue. Don’t worry Gladys you’re safe with us 😤 You dont have the gravitas to make this sound anything other than pathetic.
If this was a labor member Credlin would want their head in a stick Multiculturalism is an abject failure At its core it is a Marxist ideology designed to destroy white european ethnic cohesion Eastern Europe had communism imposed on them by the Bolshevik East. They know multiculturalism is Marxist and reject it outright We must unwind it
I think it’s the Libs and ScoMo that are being naive! The quiet Australians are not buying this I guess section 44 of the constitution means nothing? Guess this just proves that Australia is nothing more than China's new territory. Peta Credlin, lying through her teeth PETA selling out to the Chinese. Traitor just like her old boss
Seriously Peta? Even you must of cringed when you saw what they wanted you say tonight. How good does it feel to sell your soul for a paycheck? Oh well, good luck to ya I suppose. Seriously? What an utter joke winatallcosts Credlin has no credibility and needs to remove the crack pipe from her sphincter. I’m pretty certain that the Rotarians and our local Surf Life Saving Clubs aren’t working people to death, spying upon their neighbours or trying to manipulate or meddle in their domestic affairs.
ASIO 'warned govt about Gladys Liu before her pre-selection' | Sky News AustraliaThe government is facing new questions about Gladys Liu after it was revealed the intelligence committee warned senior Liberals about her alleged links to the Chinese communist party ahead of her pre-selection.\n\nQuestions have also been raised after it was revealed ASIO told former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull not to attend an event organised by her over security concerns. \n\nFormer Labor Senator Sam Dastyari compared the fracas engulfing the Liberal MP to his resignation over ties to billionaire businessman Huang Xiangmo. \n\nDuring a fiery interview with Sky News host David Speers, Mr Dastyari said if Ms Liu wasn’t a member of the Liberal Party, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and others would be calling for her “scalp”. \n\n“The fact she’s a member of the Liberal Party and a member of the government is the only reason she’s surviving right now,” he said. \n\nImage: News Corp Australia\n The reds no longer under the bed! It’s in parliament! OMG! ScoMo! WTF? Chinese Communist Party keep a relation with both parties of Australia so TIGHT that CCP can send spies,who have already infiltrate into parliment level aided by top politicians Phoebe2302 They knew before the election but still proceeded.... she's a good fund raiser. Funny that AUSTRALIAN security has a price! Strong borders eh ScottMorrisonMP PeterDutton_MP
Liu naive, or just plain dumb? Have disclosure rules been breached? Except for the whole Chinese-subversive-interference-in-the-politics-of-other-countries thing..... They do honorary memberships? That may explain the day I was lounging on the beach and a guy in a yellow tee-shirt shoved a board in my hand and pointed out to sea!
You have to be joking seriously 🤔 It's ok, our candidate is an idiot who had no idea she was tied, 3 times at least, to an authoritarian regime. Interesting strategy. Really Peta, did Rupert ask you to write this or did you come up with this all by yourself. Would also like to know if you would hold the same opinion if this had been a Labor MP?
Naive surely means she is not in Parliament on merit then. GladysLiuMP auspol Change your view to protect your side, what a fake
and this is why god stopped her breeding.
