Alan Jones, the most popular and influential conservative radio commentator in the country, has damaged the Liberal Party so badly, it may never recover. His hatred of Julia Gillard seems so intense, he used the recent death of her 83 year old father to get his point across and said "he died of shame."
He was addressing a $100-a-head Sydney University Liberal Club President's Dinner at The Rocks in Sydney last weekend and the club tweeted the next day "Brilliant speech by Alan Jones last night, it's no wonder he's the nation's most influential broadcaster." The post has since been deleted.
A tape recording of the dinner revealed that Jones said "The old man recently died a few weeks ago of shame, to think that he has a daughter who told lies every time she stood for Parliament." Laughter is then heard in the background. He went on to suggest that the PM's tears of grief for her father were responsible for the sudden leap in her popularity.
His comments are beyond disgusting, they are sick and he needs to apologise.
