Outrage Miss Placed Over Jones' Gillard is Liar

Outrage at broadcaster Alan Jones claiming at a function that Australian PM Gillard's father died of shame from her lies to parliament. However, the salient truth ignored by this outrage, with Shadow Communications Minister Turnbull calling on Jones to apologise, is that Gillard has lied often, and as a result people have died (because of her lie that the Pacific Solution wasn't the most effective policy, over a thousand have died coming to Australia, or because of her half hearted support for Afghanistan, many soldiers have died), Corruption has flourished (union corruption which has stymied the Australian economy, corruption practiced by Gillard as a lawyer and perpetuated through her Fair Work legislation), the government is illegitimate (the only common denominator between Rudd's administration and her administration is Gillard).

Time that Jones' comment be seen for what it is. The sad and bad truth.

from Andrew Bolt ..

Die of shame

Those who were there and are quoted in the article deny hearing any such comment, but if it was indeed said it was very cruel, very wrong: 
The talkback host told a packed room of Liberal Party members: “Every person in the caucus of the Labor Party knows that Julia Gillard is a liar, everybody. I will come to that in a moment. 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.”
UPDATE
No, the tape confirms it. The remark is shameful. I wish the few Young Liberals who laughed in apparent surprise or scorn had booed or otherwise protested instead.
Alan Jones is a colleague, and I’ve long valued his courage. But this is very wrong.
