Crikey says: revolting students and brilliant Pyne

Political porkies: how do Tony Abbott's rate in history? And Jane Caro's take. Why consumer confidence has crashed. More spin on Operation Sovereign Borders. Thailand under martial law: Crikey's on the streets. Indonesia's own Joe Biden. Plus why axing the Australia Network makes no sense -- and the staff who are nervous about what it means.

We present, without comment, an interview this morning between hard-hitting radio truth-seeker Alan Jones and Education Minister and “very good communicator” Christopher Pyne. We’ve removed Pyne’s responses because, really, they’re not necessary …

    LOL Glorious. Well done Crikey.

    Yes, very droll, but it all goes to show just how counterproductive shouting student jeer squads getting themselves on the news for jostling eminent antagonists actually are.

    Strange how it still makes perfect sense without the “grub”!

  4. Lionel Love

    … and these guys claim that the ABC is biased. It would be laughable if it wasn’t so very pathetic.

    “Polly, what a cracka!”

    But “Ditch the Bitch” was all Right?

    This is a standard Jones session, of which Abbott is the exemplar. All that is required is the occasional murmur of assent without interrupting the flow.
    Contrast this with Hately’s Monday love-in with Morriscum – Rat doesn’t need to urge Scrott to greater bathos – he manages to plumb unknown depths all by hisself.

    Brilliant Crikey – can we have some Bolt, Hadley, Akerman and Devine to go with that…..
    Lowbrow protests should not be necessary in this day and age, but they jolly well still are.

    I’m surprised that no one congratulated Alan Jones on his very smart deflection of attention from a budget that adversely and unfairly impacted most of his listeners to something they could collectively hate smart, young people.
    Yes the old queen has served his masters well as usual.

    Yes, Klewso, also alright were the Cronulla Australia Day riots and the alleged People’s Revolt.
    And it is also now such a predictable tactic of the more obnoxious and vociferous elements of the modern Right, that as soon as there’s some sort of reaction to their arrogant, bullying and aggressive actions, they immediately and frenetically rush to claim victim status for themselves.
