General tells Australian army to behave or 'get out'
The chief of the Australian Army, Lieutenant-General David Morrison, was hailed as an unlikely feminist hero yesterday for telling officers and men who “demean or exploit” their female colleagues to “get out”.
The uncompromising message was delivered in a video, after revelations that three officers had been suspended and another 100 people were being investigated over “demeaning, explicit and profane” material.
General Morrison says: “Those who think that it is OK to behave in a way that demeans or exploits their colleagues have no place in this Army… If that does not suit you, then get out.”
One commentator tweeted: “Can we organise a series of leadership seminars by … David Morrison for all our politicians before Sept 14 [election day]?”
