Humble pie time 30/9/2012
Alan Jones called a press conference a few minutes ago to apologise for his appalling remark to students that Julia Gillard’s father died of shame because of her repeated lies.
Taking chutzpah to Olympian levels Jones managed in his explanation to revisit the no-carbon-tax lie, the pink batts fatalities, the Gillard-AWU scandal and the boat people failures. He also referred to the trashing by Labor leaders of Kevin Rudd earlier this year.
Don’t think the press pack wanted to hear those matters getting another airing.
Jones also claimed a cabinet minister’s wife had Twittered a death wish aimed at him.
It will be interesting to see whether the media will get as excited about that.
The ever-watchful BoltA reveals an far more hurtful declaration about Gillard’s father’s death, one that unlike Jones’ disgraceful jibe, was intended for widespread public consumption. And unlike Jones woeful crack, was totally ignored by the outraged commentariat.
