I think it's Open Season on Fitzgibbon -* (linky)
Julia Gillard is explaining away Fitzgibbon's "mistake". Too bad about the lies. He is, of course, very sorry. (Gillard looks unleashed on the programme... she has better dress sense than Mrs Kev07.)
China is very important to us, it's our third biggest trading partner and it's where most of our overseas students come from... we should cultivate that relationship.
Shot at Annabelle about having a go at Fitzgibbon's dress sense.
(I don't see anyone offering advice and a nice suit to Therese Rein!)
Paul Barrett former Defence Secretary interviewed about the procedure if they're not happy with the minister.. about the pay cock-up, pointed out that all money is channelled into capital equipment at the expense of things like an efficient pay system. (That's a bit scary!)
Your shout, in a bar. Left/Right think tank? Youthful opinions about what Kevin's financial plan and his Seven Point Financial Plan presented on Power Point. (tee hee)
George says that Fitzgibbon is using the dill defence. Annabelle said maybe he was thinking about whether he declared them and so would admit to them, which Andrew is pointing out. Barrie - well, he really only misled the press, not the parliament. Had he misled the parliament he would have been gone.
Annabelle & Andrew ask: did anyone privately contact Fitzgibbon and ask what was goin on... like Kevin, who has not, it appears, spoken with Fitzgibbon and asked what was going on, and they're supposed to be mates.
Joe Hockey... pointed out all the freebie trips by people who are now ministers in Kevin's parliament, Joe was accused of being racist... on Sunrise. Arrgh.
Why can't Megalogenis see that there's a big picture here? Why can't anyone? Annabelle sees it I think.
Barrie brings up about the secret Chinese meeting (with the Minister for Propaganda, only secret in Australia). Laurie's interview with Kevin - who discusses his plans for bringing China in the IMF.
OOOh, oooh, I forgot to mention that Andrew used the word beholden about Fitzgibbon. he he he
Talking Pictures is good today, too. About Kevin's trip to the US. The first one, which I missed so didn't hear the cartoonist's name, was excellent...
Dumb question asked of Malcolm Turnbull "Do you think that the LNP having a three-letter name is a good idea?" Mal replied "I don't know, perhaps you should ask the ALP?"
* sorry, I got woken at dawn by a furry person who wanted attention, and then wanted attention for hours after, and didn't stop grizzling until 8am, and I slept in, the first thing I turn off in the house on the weekend is the alarm clock!
