She’s lucky they said no. Julia Gillard should be thankful that the television station said “no” and the grand final of Dancing with the Stars will go ahead on Sunday night as scheduled. Pushing aside the nation’s most popular program for a Prime Ministerial address on the carbon tax would have been a sure fire way to lose votes.

    The sooner they declare Sunday TV a politician free zone the better.

    Thank goodness for PayTV so I don’t have to watch Dancing with the “Stars” (who are these people btw?)

    “Don’t blame us”?
    So why are they “worth so much”, and why do we have to keep bumping up politician’s wages to keep them “somewhere abreast” of “what they could be earning as “executives elsewhere”?

    “Fit and proper” – with their institutionalised meddling – I don’t know whether I’d want to see Rupert “selling papers”.
