Richard Farmer’s chunky bits: PM’s dignified silence a credit to her

Jones inspired dislike ... Warming the planet with your money ... Boredom. Why is it so? ...

Richard Farmer

Crikey political commentator

A Liberal view on Jones. Much twittering about Alan Jones yesterday by those I follow. The man certainly can inspire dislike. I was even moved to tweet once myself after reading his pathetic attempt to divert some of the criticism by saying he was speaking at a private function under the "do-not-quote-me" Chatham House rules.

Still, I probably should have followed the advice of Mark Textor and not contributed. The Liberal Party pollster was spot on with his comments:

    Why anyone in Labor pays court to Jones is beyond me – it’s usually been to sell their own self-interest, which says more about them and the company they’re prepared to keep.

    On the definition of boredom, I’ve never quite understood what boredom is. You may filter or block out uninteresting, repetitive or abusive input, but there’s always something interesting to think about meanwhile.

    And Richard, your Crikey contributions are none of U, R or A listed above. 🙂

    For the magpie mind, your section has lots of shiny.
