Australian minister ordered to counselling

. Reuters reports that a junior minister in Australia's new Labor government has been ordered to seek anger management therapy. Belinda Neal told pregnant Liberal Party politician Sophie Mirabella that her baby could be 'born a demon'. Neal has also been suspended from a football team for kicking a fallen opponent, and there are allegations she threatened and abused staff at a restaurant north of Sydney

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said;

"I've said to her that there appears to be a pattern of unacceptable behaviour."

Neal meanwhile seems to acknowledge she might have a slight problem, she said;

"I think frankly that it will be a good thing."
