I just love how this Alan Jones business is playing out. I was one of those who was coined a 'Howard Hater'. But never in my wildest dreams did I imagine him being put in a chaff bag and thrown out sea, as Jones suggested should happen to Australia's PM Gillard.
Those appalling types who listen to 2GB apparently have no respect for Australia and the office of the Prime Minister of our country.
Maybe one day, social media will go all wrong and vent itself on you or me, but I am seriously liking the way social media is heading, in calling matters like Jones to account. I hope this is the way of the future, that is when someone as abominable as Jones goes overboard, decent people can take effective action via social media.
Lol at the point that those who are protesting against Jones, don't listen to him. Yes, that is quite correct. Why would we? His devotees are old and comfortably off people who probably don't get out much and have a scant connection with the real world. And some could be real rednecks (there, rednecks is another useful word from the US)
I am starting to like PM Gillard. She did not engage in the debate and apart from saying she will not appear on Jones' radio show, she maintained a dignified silence, in spite of Jones suggesting that her father died of shame about his daughter's political lies.
I am a little troubled though. Don't our newspapers, The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, own McQuarie Radio who owns 2GB? Did Fairfax sell off McQuarie? As for The Age being owned by Fairfax and not David Syme, how did that happen?
To put it ever so bluntly about Jones, I think we are observing a piece of shit being scraped off a shoe.
