Reason Party MLC Fiona Patten has lashed out at abuse directed at her in a new video published on Youtube.
The video, which features Patten, some tinkly pianos and members of Eunuchs Lives Matter reading out alleged things said to her online, was published yesterday in response to the growing backlash against crossbenchers selling out in secret to the government.
“It shouldn’t matter if I repeatedly voted to shut your small businesses while lobbying to keep my interests in the sex industry open. It was all about science and stopping the spread of transmissible disease,” Patten said.
“I don’t care if your bankrupt, can’t feed your family and have lost all your human rights. That shouldn’t be an excuse for such uncivil behaviour and I shouldn’t be on the receiving end of such vile abuse.”
Patten will be signing Andrews’ Enabling Act before disappearing from public life for ‘an unspecified amount of time.’
