Abbott's men and woman

Two weeks ago we looked at what Abbott’s ABC would look like – this week we apply the same principle to a Coalition overhaul of the commercial networks. Reach for your remote, view and assess.

We are about six months into the Abbott government and among the few things we can glean so far is that his main men are Treasurer Joe Hockey, Immigration Minister Scott Morrison and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Two weeks ago we looked at what Abbott’s ABC would look like – this week we apply the same principle to a Coalition overhaul of the commercial networks. 

While his main woman is Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.
Abbott has also made his displeasure with the ABC well known. Media ownership reform is on the cards.

    • Why Is Julie Bishop always referred to as the only woman in Abbott's cabinet ?? Why is she never referred to as the brightest woman in Abbott's cabinet ?

      • @Carol, if we referred to bishop as the brightest then we would both be wrong

      • Sadly she is the brightest but why that is sad is that her claim to fame is she out stared a garden gnome on a TV chat show. Summed up the government quite well actually.

      • Because she is the ONLY woman in the cabinet. And she was only ever a token woman, chosen to counter Rudd having a female Deputy.

        • Nothing like reading mature comments from the Labor Luvvies. They may not be able to run a country but they're very good at name calling. Yay.
