Miss Tame is a bright woman whose gutsiness it would be churlish to deny. Sadly, she hasn’t been savvy enough to withstand the flattery-as-bouncer phenomenon with which feminists control their heroines. As long as the Australian of the Year hammers Liberals and conservatives exclusively, the laurels will keep coming. Were she to start berating men in the labour movement, the arts and the media, that would change quickly. Goodnight, Gracie. Anyway… is there an American of the Year, a Briton of the Year, a Fijian of the Year? This gong was already embarrassing and childish; now it’s taxpayer-funded left-wing tub-thumping to boot.
[now now, Pigs – CL]
That role has been betrayed for years now. Time to award it only to sportsmen and women again.
Time to posthumously award Bert Newton the final ‘Australian of the Years’ in perpetuity and end this farrago now.
Call her bright if you like but she’s absolutely clueless, like all lefties, about how the world actually works. Hence she’s as dumb as.
And yet the PM keeps playing into the left’s hands.
I didn’t hear him supporting Bettina Arndt a year or so ago.
Far from it.
Ms Tame — ah — if only people knew
