Pru Goward not coming back to Canberra

johnboy 30 March 2007 36

The SMH has the happy news that the water thieving Pru Goward will not be returning to Canberra to resume her sinecure at HREOC.

Instead she’s off the the NSW Parliament to represent the seat of Goulburn from the opposition benches.

Good riddance.

If I saw Howard down the Durham on a Friday sans minders, I’d let him buy me a beer. It’s the least he could do.

It’s a matter of simple fact that the PM is able to lead a personal life beyond the reach of his AFP minders – Bob Hawke certainly did when, I have little doubt that Keating did and Howard does…end of story…anything you see in The Lodge is on a need to know basis – if you personally didn’t see it you aren’t trusted to know – if you did, you wouldn’t tell.

and I couldn’t give a rat’s who he sleeps with, but bullshit is another thing

Pandy et al

Ask yourself how I could possibly have the knowledge about JWH that I do. Think about who looks after him 24/7 then what I do for a job. JWH croney my bottom!

You have a right to express your opinion, but bullshit is not opinion. Bullshit is just bullshit.

Careful someone doesn’t sell you Kings Ave bridge

Dear Mr VG
or should I say, JWH croney.
Before you fly off the handle again at me, may I suggest that you do not read this website if you take personal affront to my, or anyone elses views on any subject. I have a clear right to express my opinion, and will do so, regardless of whether you think that what I say, or anyone alse here, is bullshit. Thankyou to Ingeegoodbee for your verification. If Mr JHW is happy to take office,and all that it entails then he must be up for public critisism. Thats what RiotAct is all about.

It was nice of the kind people of the Goulburn electorate to provide a vehicle for the ambitions of another wanabee Lib leader..

I wonder how long it will take for Pru to pack up and clear out of sunny Goulburn as soon as the town has served her purposes..

Will be interesting to see how much time she spends there slogging through the nuts and bolts of local electorate issues, and how much time she spends shmoozing at Macquarie Street with the rest of the self-absorbed twits.

Sorry, that should of course be 1994

Ingeegoodbee Ingeegoodbee 6:02 am 03 Apr 07

I was told first hand by Tony Wright around June or July 1995. Back then Tony was probably the most senior of the SMH political correspondents up on the hill that Pru Goward was, shall we say – the other Mrs Howard. This was in the context of a discussion about the fact that if Howard wone the election (and the writing was pretty much on the wall for Keating by then)the PM would not reside at The Lodge but would most likely take Kirribilli. His view was that Mrs Bucket would simply refuse to live in the same city as Goward.

Well VG how do you know that the stories are NOT true?

vg vg 2:24 pm 02 Apr 07

Sorry Pandy, but you heard wrong as well.

As for Sonic, well I have no inside skinny on that front

Pandy Pandy 1:18 pm 02 Apr 07

VG, I heard that too. I also heard that Sonic is having a fling on the side.

My pint is your story is bullshit. I would have though that was obvious by the fact I quoted you then said ‘bullshit’.

I’m also stating your ‘source’ is also a bullshitter.

Please get back to me if that isn’t clear enough

dusty dusty 9:36 am 01 Apr 07

Huh? So whats your point?

vg vg 9:15 am 01 Apr 07

“I heard she was John Winston Howards squeeze on the side for years, maybe that helps, god knows it couldn’t have been for any other reason.”

What absolute bullshit. Who told you, my mother’s brother’s cousin’s next door neighbour’s friend’s sister who knew someone who lived in Canberra?

I-filed I-filed 8:49 am 01 Apr 07

By the way, Johnboy, in case you meant your post literally, I think Pru’s HREOC office was in Sydney, not Canberra…

I-filed I-filed 8:47 am 01 Apr 07

Hmmm, does this mean Howard will do the Sydney-Canberra leg (over) by car from now on with a stop-over in Goulburn? Anyone recall which journo it was who could only refer to the Howard/Goward affair (so to speak) by noting that Pru and Janette have the same body shape??????

You can’t say things like that dusty, Pru might have to break down and cry about the nasty rumours flying around about her ala Our Brave Leader, Stanhopeless and his Waterworksgate.

Actually I think she’s tough enough to handle it

I heard she was John Winston Howards squeeze on the side for years, maybe that helps, god knows it couldn’t have been for any other reason.
