Tips and rumours

Turnbull submits to explosive check ... ICT jobs to go in Melbourne ... trouble at QSuper? ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

All clear on Malcolm. A jetsetting mole reports being behind Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull in an airport this morning — and he got pulled aside and checked for explosives. “The question is though: when did the pollies start flying Virgin? They used to fly Qantas and supply the national airline,” our source grumbled. As far as Ms Tips knows, federal pollies can fly whichever airline they want on the taxpayer’s dime — although having access to the plushy Qantas invitation-only Chairman’s Lounge (cue free sandwiches, coffee and internet in a pleasant, uncrowded atmosphere) might keep some loyal to the national carrier.

    ‘Regular viewers’ would have known about the change without twitter, as Leigh announced it on the Thursday program. Tipster let you down.

    Sarah Ferguson is more than worthy as a replacement for Leigh Sales. I’ll be tuning in to 7.30 (having drifted away in the last six or so months). The only thing I’m sad about is that Ms Ferguson won’t be at Four Corners to continue the heavy hitting and much needed exposes she’s now well known for.

    Three cheers for Sarah!
