Alan Jones "Interviews" Julia Gillard

This morning on Sydney's radio 2GB, veteran Liberal Spokesman, Alan Jones tried to conduct an interview with the Prime Minister. The only thing was, he was extremely rude and disrespectful to her and didn't want to let her answer his questions, which were more like accusations. He was extremely offended that the PM was late for her interview with the great man.

To be fair, Julia Gillard could diffuse the whole broken promise accusation by simply stating that given the hung parliament, the Government is entitled to make changes to the way it intends to implement the policy goals announced during the election. It was always envisaged that there would be a carbon price. Before the election, a carbon tax was ruled out. Now, being the leader of a minority government means that the PM needs to compromise and negotiate on some policies in order to achieve her policy objective, namely reduction of carbon in the atmosphere. 

Own the prima facie broken promise and move on.

Here is Neil Mitchell's response to Jones' rant about punctuality.

Here's a link to the interview.

And here's a link to some comic relief. Jones rails against dust.
