Seems as though the parrot is on his last warning at 2gb, over comments he made on Thursday stating that Scott Morrison should " shove a sock down Jacinta Ardern's throat", after she stated that Australia "had to answer to the pacific " on climate change, he also described Ms Ardern as a joke, about time this old p***k gave it away, it's not the first time that he has caught foot in mouth disease! - https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/alan-jones-warned-he-is-on-his-last-strike-at-2gb-after-jacinda-ardern-comments/ar-AAFWktC?ocid=spartanntp

As long as it boost the ratings somehow I don't think the management would worry too much as he is what is known as a shock jock and that is exactly what he does shocks the listeners. The best idea would for be everyone turns him off and then you might be rid of him. I dislike this type of thing on any media which is rife these days unfortunately, if you cannot report the news then make the news as it is all good for the station or whatever.

For as long as his employers continue to pay him, this misogynistic bottom-feeder will keep on going. It's a pity that there is no legal avenue available to get rid of him when he carries on like this. First it was Gillard; now it's Ardern. The only reason I'd listen to his drivel would be to take note of what advertisements are aired and to avoid any such sponsors like the plague. Come to think of it, it could be an idea to mount a campaign against his sponsors.

It seems to be a thing with Jones. When it comes to Prime Ministers he appears to prefer the boys to the girls. Cranky old misogynist.

The owners aren't interested in everyone who turns on the radio. They are only after people who believe their world is crumbling and anyone and anything different is a threat. That's how Fox News became #1 cable news network in the US.

GB jocks are royally courted by the LNP but it's a closed loop. They blow sunshine up each others ...  and their listeners join the conga line as they go round and round doing what they always do.

What is the difference with the ABC and the ALP/Greens blowing wind up each other, going around same old stories?

And yet Liberal and some National Party pollies make regular appearances on 7:30, Insiders, even Q&A, even though they have to answer real questions.

The other is all bias, nothing more than an echo chamber for the extremely wrought.

Winning move from Jones. Everyone's talking about 2GB.

It seems as though the advertisers are waking up to themselves, quite a few of them have pulled the pin on advertising on the Jones program, as they should, maybe that will shut him up!

If he'd said that about Pauline Hanson instead of Jacinda Arden he'd be applauded instead of derided.

I do believe he probably muffed what he was trying to say but overall has his time come?  Is it time for him to leave radio or change his style?  His comments are always politically motivated, as they are on skynews, (which is why I have turned off on sky).  Further his comments are always pro the liberals.

I think the time has come to call him a smeghead.

I do believe he said exactly what he meant.

Had a chat with an old mate in the context of the Gillard comment surrounding her farther.
Parrot was having/did have prostrate treatment at a similar time?
Old mate who works in the medical business declared the parrot was such an a,,hole that any prostrate examination would require the expertise of an ear nose and throat specialist.

What a dumb comment, of course he would have been but Jones would never do that. Jacinda Arden at least is trying to advance in the future unlike the loony fringe pauline.

"don_dunstan"
Quite possibly true. There's a certain section of Australian political observers who thrive on personal attacks, misoginy et al.  
It shouldn't happen, but it does. But, when you see the likes of Abbott and Pyne, red-faced and screaming, "Ditch the Witch", it shows that Jones is at least in distinguished company. All such misoginistic attacks are a disgrace, and  have no place in political debate.

Jones crosses the line with his disrespectful comments about another prime minister. Would he have said the same about Morrison ?

SO it's okay to be misogynist to Senator for Queensland Pauline Hanson because she's loony fringe but a respected person like Jacinda Arden is not to be treated like that, even though what she said was patently wrong. Thanks for clearing that up for me.
  Carnot Chief Commissioner

I don't have a high opinion of either Jonesy or Ardern.  Too often he's uncivil and mad in his ranting, and she's a bit of a puppet of China.

The Difference is that Hanson is a Loony Fringe Poli who's policies are dated and near racist, while Jacinda Arden is a moderate one seeks to advance her Nation as an effective political and world leader (unlike Nomo here). Thats the Difference.

Also Please explain (Hanson Quote Smeg!) how I've Been misogynistic to the Il Duce of One Nation? Is hating one politician cause there female rather than what her and One Nation represent? It's to me 'Anti-Fa are the Real Fascists' and 'Criticising Israel for its policies is anti-Semitic' logic your using there.

I'm just trying to understand your world view. So Pauline's honor isn't worth defending because you don't like her - so we can threaten her with a sock down her throat and it's okay. Jacinda Arden on the other hand is morally righteous and upstanding and its wrong to disparage her in any way.

Got it.

In that context it's "they're".

And you have already clarified how it's okay to make threats against Pauline because she's awful - you don't have to explain any more, I understand what your view is. End-of-story.
