ALBRECHSTEN PUNISHED

Andrew Bolt, Herald Sun

The Australian must be disturbed that one of its star columnists is punished like this:

Janet Albrechtsen, a senior columnist with The Australian, has backed-in claims that Malcolm Turnbull vetoed the renewal of her term on the board of the National Museum of Australia because she gave him critical coverage.

Conservative commentator Andrew Bolt … said Mr Turnbull had overruled early moves by his Arts Minister Mitch Fifield to reappoint Albrechtsen to the Council of the National Museum of Australia because he was displeased with her columns…

Contacted by The Australian, Albrechtsen backed in Bolt’s version of events.

Liberals must also worry that a conservative warrior is dumped from a cultural body for not being supportive enough of their leader personally.

Wow. so Janet is dumped but a Turnbull mate is made head of the ABC, which he promptly declares free of any detectable bias.

    The swamp we need to drain is getting bigger. What next?

      We need a bigger drain!

        Need a D11SxS swamp dozer to get rid of that much sludge.

        There aren’t any drains big enough for our swamp, Bwana.

    Do we have a Prime Minister or a dictator. This behaviour, as well as his attempts to silence Andrew Bolt are evidence of the country heading down the road of 3rd world dictatorship. This so called “leader” must go a.s.a.p.

    As I recall, JA was one of Malcolm’s cheerleaders back in 2015, along with Miranda and Nikki.
    This move by Turnbull is reprehensible – but at the same time, it’s poetic justice.

      Yes Gregoryno6, and her squeeze Mr Kroger where salivating at the thought of a Turnbull led Liberal party “What Happened?” There’s a book there somewhere…

      we knew he was a dud it took Janet some time to figure it out, one wonders when she is suppose to be, so bright

      It’s a perfect of his “loyalty”, and of his excessively fragile glass jaw. He’s everyones friend – as long as they’re saying nice things about him.

    Pity Mal doesn’t get on his high horse and vetoe ABC staff and CEO like he’s done here to one of the few political commentators one can stomach. Another nail in his coffin I hope.

    Seems like we are creeping towards a society not unlike that of Zimbabwe and their ilk.

    • Bwana Neusi 06/12/2017, 12:44 pm

      God forbid!

      Can you imagine Turdball at the helm of Austrabwe for another thirty years?

        And Lucy as an Australian version of Grace, Bwana?

      • Joe Blogs 07/12/2017, 12:18 pm

        Saw something on TV last night about “Disgrace”, PS. She’s a unit.

    Proof is in the pudding , so they say, Malcolm Turnbull should the Labor Leader

  • Albert 06/12/2017, 1:58 pm

    I don’t know why everyone is surprised at this. It is par for the course for Turnbull. He has been doing this sort of thing all of his adult life and probably before adulthood.

    Turnbull is without doubt the most reprehensible and gutless coward I have ever come across.
