A matter of political judgment

Northern Territory Federal Labor MHR Damian Bale, the Member for Solomon, last week attended the launch of the Respectful Relationships Program to be taught in 40 NT schools. The program teaches students how not to become abusive husbands when they grow up.

Mr Hale, reports the Northern Territory News, stood behind Federal Minister for the Status of Women Tanya Plibersek when she said children needed training, “so they can have relationships that are respectful and non-violent”. This morning in the Darwin Magistrate’s Court an application by his wife Jennifer Hale, a Darwin traditional owner, for a domestic violence order against him was adjourned until Friday.
