Tony Jones and the team from the ABC’s Q&A have done Australia a great service — they have exposed Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells as yet another Liberal of the troglodyte class. Barry Everingham comments.
Hooray! Jones and his team have lifted a rock and from under it has emerged yet another Tony Abbott type Liberal, with knuckles dragging along the ground. Like thousands of other viewers of last night’s ABC Q&A, I was speechless at the bile and drivel which Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells spewed incessantly forth; to the great credit of her fellow panellists, not one of them – including Liberal party machine man Graham Morris – agreed with almost anything she said.
In fact, they all looked as though they would rather have been anywhere than on a panel which included this egregious Senator.
She was trying to justify Tony Abbott’s decision to stand in front of the insulting, sexist posters arranged by the extreme right of Australia—the Shooters Party, One Nation and the Nazis, to name just a few.
She lobbed those lunatics into the melting pot of what she called “ordinary Australians” demonstrating against a big new tax!
Ordinary Australians, God bless them, would never have condoned the use of such insulting items especially as they were aimed at a woman. God may bless the ordinary Aussies but only God knows what the right winger’s message sent to the rest of the world about us as a nation.
Morris reminded her that John Howard’s minders would never, under any circumstances, have allowed the former Prime Minister to be anywhere near such posters.
The implication in that is that Abbott’s minders are as crazy as Tony.
While I’m in that neighbourhood, let’s throw Bronwyn Bishop, Sophie Mirabella, Scott Morrison, Corey Bernardi and their cohorts in the Liberal Party into the mix.
Like all Australians Fierravanti-Wells and the others are entitled to their views, but I believe our readers should be reminded that they are great supporters of Australians for Constitutional Monarchy — they can’t be members, of course, that’s reserved for Dave Flint and his side kick, the former seminarian Tom Flynn.
Morris lamely reminded the panel that Howard had been subjected to posters which said “baby killer”, “murderer”, along with a few other choice descriptions.
Well, be that as it may, Howard did make a unilateral decision to get Australia involved in George W Bush’s murderous war in Iraq, which caused the deaths of thousands of innocent men, women, children and babies. All because we were lied to—to get rid of those WMDs. Remember them? That’s right, the ones that weren’t there in the first place.
Oh, before I go, a message for Concetta.
Never go on national TV honey when you are having a bad hair day. It’s not a good look.
