Lisa Wilkinson: The project’s co-host is facing calls for firing after Logie’s speech

Written by Javed Iqbal

Hundreds of Australians are calling for The Projects co-host Lisa Wilkinson to be fired after her Logies speech debacle causes a rape case delayed.

Wilkinson has been under heavy fire after her speech at the awards ceremony on Sunday night caused the trial of Bruce Lehrmann, the man accused of raping Brittany Higgins, to be delayed until October.

ACT Supreme Court Justice Lucy McCallum said Wilkinson’s speech ‘completely obliterated’ the line between allegation and guilt in the alleged sexual assault in the House of Commons in Canberra on March 22, 2019.

The whole saga is ironic when Wilkinson himself – in August 2021 – begged ‘everyone to respect what is at stake here’.
