Lisa Hanna Says Warmington’s Behaviour Is ‘Obnoxious’ After He Calls Her ‘Jezebel’

Minister of Youth and Culture, Lisa Hanna has described her parliamentary colleague, Everald Warmington’s behaviour as ‘obnoxious and misogynistic’ after he referred to her as ‘Jezebel’.

Warmington made the remark during yesterday’s sitting of the House of Representatives as members deliberated about possibly increasing the minimum wage.

In a lengthy post on the social media platform Instagram, minister Hanna stated she was not surprised by Mr Warmington’s remarks and also stated that he seems to have an obsession with her.

See her post below:


Much as I would prefer to be surprised at such grossly unparliamentary behaviour by a colleague, I am forced to confess that Mr Warmington’s misconduct is no surprise.

Based on his history, he seems to have a problem with women in general and a obsessive compulsion with me. Why else would he take the time, as he has done in the past, to make a special complaint to the Speaker about his perception that my trousers were too tight? Why else would he waste parliament’s time with a motion about how women dress? Why else would he constantly make funny faces at me in parliament.

Without doubt, his behaviour to women in general and me in particular is inexplicably vulgar, boorish, uncouth and abusive. His example, as a national leader, is one of the reasons why some of our young girls suffer such callous cruelty at the hands of adult men. Mr Warmington’s personal troubles go beyond mere misogyny his repetitive addiction towards indecent and perversely obnoxious behaviour sets bad examples for our nation’s children and our people in general. Let have the courage to deal with him once and for all. #wharmingtonneedstobedisciplined #theparliamentneedstoact #heisabadexampleforchildren #letsstopyhelaughing #ourpeopleexpectbetterforleaders #thisisnotaplayground #wharmingtonneedstobedisciplined
