The Moment When Gillard Jumped The Shark

12 Jun

Conservative blogger Andrew Bolt has called it right – “Is this the most stupid, divisive and dishonest speech in Australian politics?”

Some very interesting comments — from those most un-likely — are quoted at that link. Worth a look.

    Mal Brough DESERVES AN APOLOGY FROM JULIA GILLARD
    Posted on June 12, 2013 by Samuel J

    UPDATE

    Mal Brough is in the clear. It turns out that the chairman of the restaurant made the menu. We now await Julia Gillard’s apology to Tony Abbott and Mal Brough for making these allegations.

    Dear Mal,
    I have been following the rubbish that has been on the news today. I would like to confirm what actually happened: there were never any menus distributed on the tables or in the restaurant. I created a mock menu myself as a light-hearted joke, however as I said I never produced them for public distribution. Unfortunately a staff member saw the mock menu, and unbeknownst to myself, posted it on their facebook. It now appears that a third party for political reasons has distributed it, yet I can reassure you that no such menu was distributed on the night. As you know no one at the dinner was privy to such a menu, and it is so unfortunate that an in-house joke between myself and my son has caused you great problems and embarrassment.
    Regards,
    Joe Richards
    Chairman
