Prime Minister Julia Gillard has declined to take a call from veteran broadcaster Alan Jones, who says he wants to apologise for comments he made about her father.

She has every right to refuse to accept the appology, although it does show her tendency to stuborness and her inability to rise above the comments, accept the appology and move on, especially when she could have taken that oportunity to show that although she personally might not appreciate the ignorance of the attack, that she and the country support that Mr Jones had every right to his free speech...

Labor never apolgised for the shit that they put on Campbell Newman and his wife and family during the Queensland Election campaign. They used the CMC to try to justify they sick comments, and it blew up in there face. Gillard should be strong and get on her feet and tell Jones on National TV what she thinks instead of taking the phone off the hook like a whimp.

What a pack of weak liberal wankers you are, if you bothered to listen to Jones so called apology, he was only sorry he got caught!
This gay fat 'shock jock' says anything he likes on air and nobody gets a right to reply, he also organised the big protest rally in Canberra with
Tony Abbots support, which was a total flop!

They are all atheist godless grubs , who really cares. We have people out of work who can't pay there power bills while these godless grubs look for some way to gain political mileage. Jones stuffed up. Its between him and Gillard no good dragging Abbott in. Lets start getting roofs over our peoples heads and food in there stomachs. Jones has stuffed up before and will again no doubt. Why give him breathing space on TV or radio. Mr Joe Citizen doesn't care and why should he. Bob Katter must be laughing at these fools. Why doesn't Gillard pick up the phone and tell Jones what a c#$t he is and then get over it.

I would think that Julia Gillard's father died with the shame that his daughter isn't loved by the Australian people as our leader of all of us,instead we look upon Julia as a dishonest person in more ways than one from her exploits especially that of how she gained office from Kevin Rudd which goes against everything Labor stands for.
If the press had any respect for Julia's father they would have not aired what Allan had said so they are the guilty party here as well as those who chose to make this a political statement.
Shame ,shame,shame on them all !

It's not very often I agree with Alan Jones but the reality of knowing the most repulsive individual in Australia was the fruit of your loins, dying of shame & embarrassment is inevitable.

The arrogance of the Greens and the Labor party have only made this worse by their politicizing this event.
The Labor Party are famous for doing worse and they never seem to be worried about their actions like when Paul Keating sent many many of his fellow Australian bankrupt when he ordered us the recession he said we needed to have .
I know many successful businesses operators lost everything and their banks took everything .
Seeing the government ordered the recession and not the market economy the banks could be seen as plunderers of ill gotten gain seeing they knew their customers had nowhere to turn to as the banks were their money managers and advisers so they could be liable for those who lost all their wealth that was deposited with them seeing title deeds are used as a basis for collateral on loans.
Seeing the government changed the financial landscape the banks should have shown kind in not adjusting their rates detrimental towards their loyal customers that they were already flogging financially.
Don't banks have morals ????????

The Labor party with play this Jones garbage to the death for Political gain and not for Gillards alleged hurt. See badly spoken albanese on TV last night playing Politics with the issue. Lets get on with Governing the country. This matter should be sorted out by Gillard. Had Hawke or Keating or Howard had the same event arise they would have shown leadership and handled it themselves, not refused to answer the phone like Gillard.

When is Labor going to apologize for the Sex Crimes committed on Children by its Labor MP's Bill Darcy 13 yrs., Keith Wright 13 yrs Threopolous 13 yrs (Still in Prison)and Corruption Crimes by Gordon Nuttall 13 yrs,(Still in Prison) and Rex Jackson 10 yrs. What happened to Gillard is Wrong Wrong. Jones has apologized. But Labor remains silent about more serious CRIMES committed by its members while in Parliament. No apology has ever been made by Labor. Every one of these Criminal Labor MP's were actually ministers of the crown.The victims of the above CRIMES suffered and still suffer as a result of Labor MP's horrible Crimes.

Wasn't there another Fed Gov Labor Senator from Northern Territory arrested for sex crimes against kids, but he died before they threw the key away.
