Alan Jones this morning described the Greens as “unfairly blamed” for the fuel load issue allegedly contributing to the bushfire crisis. Further, he said the government had the responsibility to take action and lead. He told 2GB’s John Stanley that the government had failed. “This was preventable.” 

Jones actually turned up as a guest on his own show to make the announcement. Currently, John Stanley is filling in while he takes a Christmas/New Year holiday.

An announcement of such magnitude really needs musical accompaniment from the soundtrack of the 1950s and 60s television series The Twilight Zone.

Not to mention Rod Sterling intoning the iconic voice-over.

“The middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition… between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Alan Jones: Greens “unfairly blamed”

The statement from Jones comes despite his usual vehement disparagement of the Greens. However, it is not known if the comment on leadership refers to the Federal or NSW state government. The influential radio commentator’s past controversies seemingly indicate an inherent dislike of female politicians.

The surprise statement from Jones follows news from Mad Fucking Witches that 420 advertisers withdrew support from his show since the Witches began their campaign against it.

Despite open and frequent public discussion of his sexuality, Jones himself makes no comment on the subject.
