It’s just good to see the target of a News Ltd witch-hunt turn around and say – No. Sod you. I will not resign just because you’ve whipped your ill-informed customers into a frenzy. Much as you might like to think it, this country does not belong to Rupert Murdoch yet.
And kudos to Christine Nixon for, after they’ve relentessly attacked her all week, and in the most vicious ways, for DARING to have dinner on Black Saturday, calling the press conference at 6pm and keeping the sanctimonious hacks from theirs.
The only sad part is that the editors and columnists who’ve actually been running the shameless smear campaign would’ve sent lackeys to cover it. It’s not like they’d miss their dinner.
PS Bolt and other idiots keep calling Nixon a “leftist”. Can anyone identify any left-wing principles the former police chief espoused? Is promoting women all that’s required to make someone a lefty now?
UPDATE: Check out this piece from someone who, unlike the pontificators from Southbank, actually did lose a lot in the fires. She’s angry – because this is being used to bury the real issues.
