hanson young looses it on 2gb radio

    GREENS Senator Sarah Hanson-Young has angrily hung up on Sydney talkback radio host Ben Fordham during a tense interview concerning asylum seekers.
    The senator fumed after an aggressive Mr Fordham said her refugee policy "stinks" and was a "laughing stock".
    "I don't know why you bother to invite me on to interview me," she told Mr Fordham. "You can have your own opinions. Don't invite me back on your show just so can sit on your soapbox.
    "You can do that without inviting people on your show. I'm sure you do it day in, day out."
    Tension mounted after Mr Fordham asked if Ms Hanson-Young took responsibility for the deaths that have occurred at sea since the Rudd Government dismantled John Howard's immigration policies.
    Ms Hanson-Young said no one who understands refugee policy believes more people came to Australia just because the Labor Party were elected in 2007.
    But Mr Fordham argued it was not the change of government but the Labor Government's change of policy that had seen the number of boats arriving on Australia's borders.
    "You supported a policy which has led to 50,000 people arriving here ever since and 1000 plus people drowning to the bottom of the ocean and dying," Mr Fordham said. "They're not on the earth anymore."
    Opposition Leader Tony Abbott declared "this is our country" when he announced a harsh asylum seeker policy this morning.
    It would see future arrivals and asylum seekers currently awaiting processing by Australia placed on three-year temporary protection visas if they are found to be genuine refugees.

    Hmmm ... there is a rumour SH-Y has been separated from her partner Zane for some time ...

    SH-Y's CV looks a tad short of anything serious for someone who aspires to lead a political party from age 25 .. note: SH-Y has twice challenged CM in party ballots.

    Usually water retention, but in her case I would lean towards hot air retention.

    Don't worry. This career bureaucrat is will live on the public purse forever. I was working to make a quid in Australia when she was 3 and I'm only 9 years older than her. LOL

    Ignorant fool that Hanson-Scum.

  24. Rather than losing it (not loosing it) on radio maybe she should start losing weight...

    She's a bit of a good looking spunk. Too bad about the weight and the GREENS thingy that's holding her back.

    It would be the wrong choice to deploy my inbuilt human fire extinguisher system then, if SHY was to spontaneously combust.

    Her performance was disgraceful.

    Imagine if Tony Abbott had of hung up or walked out from a Virginia Trolli interview.

    She is young as her name suggests.

    What do you expect when mainstream parties endorse the inexperienced?

    But hey this guy is a Solicitor in Australia.

    He seems like a nice man but not too good on his feet.
    Can you imagine this fella representing you at the local Mags Court?

    Not for me thanks.

    He embodies everything that you wouldn't want to have representing you in court.

    Makes me think of Cousin Vinny in that American Movie "My Cousin Vinny"

    For those that either haven't seen it or can't remember it, or couldn't be bothered doing a wiki search:

    My Cousin Vinny is a 1992 American comedy film written by Dale Launer, directed by Jonathan Lynn, and starring Joe Pesci, Ralph Macchio, Marisa Tomei, Mitchell Whitfield, Lane Smith, Bruce McGill and Fred Gwynne. The film was Gwynne's final film appearance before his death on July 2, 1993.

    The film deals with two young New Yorkers traveling through rural Alabama who are put on trial for a murder they did not commit, and the comic attempts of a cousin, Vincent Gambini, a newly minted lawyer, to defend them. Much of the humor comes from the contrasting personalities of the brash Italian-American New Yorkers, Vinny and his fiancée Mona Lisa, and the more reserved Southern townspeople.

    Lawyers have praised the comedy's realistic depiction of courtroom procedure and trial strategy. Pesci and Tomei received critical praise for their performances, and Tomei won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

    Good morning justlookin.

    I listened to first quarter of interview of him repeating Liberal's view.

    I think we are expecting to much from young people who have not really entered the school of hard knocks to think on their own,SHY keeps referring back to UN on questions she can't personally answer.

    They are at present only Apprentices in the trade of politics.

    I do not vote for a Party on one persons performance good or bad.It's the performance of the overall Party's performance.

    These young people will learn in time to think for themselves as school children must when they leave school.

    Why do you think Rudd targets school?

    Young people are vulnerable at school as all their life are taught to be taught.

    I started in a trade apprenticeship 50 years ago, I am not the same person now and think differently since then.

    Gee! I have changed more since be coming a Father many years ago.

    Even SHY will be different as she matures from experiences.

    Children are 25% DNA and 75% who teachers them growing up.

    All we can hope is they get good mentors.

    Rudd ,Labor and now Sarah Hanson Young can't talk themselves out of problems they behave themselves into.
