It seems former One Nation politician David Oldfield, suspended from shock jock duties at Sydney’s 2UE for insensitive comments on asylum seekers, just can't help himself, taking yet another opportunity to cause offence on the issue during an appearance on Sky News' The Nation last week, which, despite the best attempts of Sky’s political chief David Speers to tweet up interest, has largely passed unremarked.

Oldfield, mysteriously dropped from 2GB’s lineup in March, switched to rival 2UE but was dumped just three days into a fill-in role in the Sydney station’s drive shift after disgusting listeners with suggestions asylum seekers should be "fried" or "barbecued" on electric fences if they tried to flee detention centres.
