“These laws have crippled business and crippled Sydney as an international city. It’s reputation has been damaged. They should be abandoned. Open up the city.”
This is what shock jock Alan Jones said on his 2GB morning show today. And I have to admit, I agree with him.
I don’t often agree with Alan Jones. In fact, I don’t think I have every agreed with him before.
I didn’t, for example, agree with his performance on ABC’s Q&A on Monday night, where he berated the panel and audience for believing in climate change.
The arrogance of his argument left me perplexed and pretty pissed off.
Here’s a snippet if you missed it. Post continues after video.
I didn’t agree with his defence of Israel Folau’s high breach ruling from the Wallabies earlier this month for his homophobic, offensive and rude social media behaviour.
I found his comments in 2012 about then Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s father “dying of shame” particularly abhorrent.
I could write a book filled with examples of things I don’t agree with Alan Jones about.
