…than merely great news and entertainment, free of advertising. Your ABC may just prove instrumental in recovering the nation from the 10 year grip of HoWARd.
Since Maxine’s announcement of her candidacy for HoWARd’s Bennelong seat, ABC has been playing the “Max Factor” in ‘heavy rotation,’ at almost every newsbreak and as a main topic of just about every news and current affairs program.
Maxine couldn’t buy in-depth media coverage like this- even if it were for sale.
Toady Abbott, Federal MP for Warringah, the electorate in which McKew presently resides, smirked cockily to the ABC about journalists’ proclivities for politics:
Federal Health Minister Tony Abbott says he is surprised Ms McKew did not run against him in the Sydney seat of Warringah.
Mr Abbott also says journalists do not always make good politicians and Ms McKew will be seen as a blow-in in John Howard’s electorate.
“I’m sorry to be losing a constituent but she could have run against me in Warringah without leaving home,” he said.
“I’m just a little surprised if she feels the way she does, she hasn’t done just that.”
Father Tony ought to mind his hypocrisies. Before he was a politician…
BEc, LLB (Syd), MA (Oxon).
…he was a journalist, for The Bulletin of all things.
The Mad Monk should be thanking his lucky stars that McKew will run in Bennelong and not Warringah. Maxine would absolutely slaughter Abbott on women’s issues…
…as if he’s not having enough trouble there already.
