Jorian v. Giulia

By johnboy - 2 July 2013 8

Well this didn’t take long.

Last Friday we noted the Fringe was going back to its dad Jorian Gardner.

Yesterday the interim producers were grumbling that there wasn’t much process.

And today we have the Liberals’ arch conservative Giulia Jones having a fit of the vapous at the idea of Jorian Gardner’s continued existence:

ACT Shadow Minister for Women Mrs Giulia Jones, is concerned that the Minister for the Arts, who is also the Minister for Women, has shown questionable judgement in directly appointing Jorian Gardner as the director of the upcoming Fringe Festival.

“Last year Mr Gardner was suspended from radio for suggesting that someone should upskirt the then Prime Minister Julia Gillard,” Mrs Jones said today.

“I am surprised to say the least, that someone who has displayed such poor judgement would be given privileged and preferential treatment by this government.

“Why has this been allowed on Katy Gallagher’s watch when she decries sexism? Has Joy Burch been leaned on by members of the ACT Labor Party? Is she making her decisions based on lobbying rather than due process? Is this some sort of dodgy deal?

“Something is not right here. If he is the best man for the job he should have been put through a rigorous process in competition with others, and not just handed the job.

“As it is, you have to question Joy Burch’s judgement in appointing someone who made appallingly sexist comments about Julia Gillard,” Mrs Jones concluded.


UPDATE: Meanwhile the Fringe twitter account is getting bitter:

What’s Your opinion?

I’m really pleased to see the tone toward Jorian changing! He has been comprehensively sledged on this site in previous years!

Oh he should still be ‘sledged’.

It’s just that Guila rightly deserves to be ridiculed at every available opportunity.

I’d be more concerned about the reasons Jorian was sacked from WIN.

As far as I can see, the desirable outcome was reached, and yet the process to reach that outcome appears rather flawed and lacking in transparency.

This might be an entertaining topic for ACT 7.30 to get it’s teeth into, particularly after last week’s interview with Katy.
