Former chief of staff to Tony Abbott Peta Credlin has made quite the splash in the past two months since taking up her gig as a commentator on Sky News. Last night on Sky she was asked why she hadn’t run for preselection to get her own seat in Parliament, and Credlin answered that, despite offers of different seats, she didn’t have the “thick skin” to deal with being in the public eye. She also said she didn’t want to play the game to take instructions from branch leaders. “I didn’t think that I wanted to kowtow to some nameless nobody in a branch in order to get preselected and God forbid have to kowtow my whole time in parliament to hold onto it.” So what will Credlin do next and who is she willing to “kowtow” to, if anyone? A caller to 3AW said this morning that she is due to take up a position at a public company based in Melbourne. Watch this space.
