Again? Hang about


AN academic hired by the NRL to educate rugby league players about women has sin-binned the Liberal Party over comments by Workplace Relations Minister Joe Hockey.

Mr Hockey said yesterday that his Labor counterpart Julia Gillard was popular because she had a high-media profile – “I’m not as pretty as Julia Gillard, obviously,” Mr Hockey told reporters.

His comments came just weeks after Liberal Senator Bill Heffernan was forced to apologise to Ms Gillard for suggesting her childlessness made her less fit to lead the nation.

More moronic commentary from Joe Hockey. You’ve got to ask why he’s doing it…

Is it just me that sees a strange coincidence between this and Wilson Tuckey coming out and saying that it’s not too late to change leaders?

Watch this space for further developments.
