Alan Jones: enemy of understanding

5 1 0

OPINION: The one unshocking thing about Australian shock jock Alan Jones is how predictable he is. The self-styled man of the ordinary people has been spewing up bilge for decades now. He's been doing it so long he's actually made a career out of it.

He's built his reputation off saying things like Lebanese people are "vermin" who "rape and pillage a nation who's taken them in". He's suggested that former Australian prime minister Julia Gillard should be "put into a chaff bag" and "thrown out to sea", and that her dad died of shame.

And now this week it's revealed that, during his now-infamous sock rant, he opined that Scott Morrison should "get tough" on Jacinda Ardern and give her a few "backhanders".

Oh he's a charming man, all right. And all in all seems determined to continue his well-establishing career of being a total, unmitigated arse.
