What Joy Burch should really be apologising for

By johnboy - 8 December 2013 48

Anyone who cares what anyone else re-tweets is, inherently, an oxygen thief who would improve the world by their passing from it.

So despite numerous people trying to egg us on about Joy Burch ill advisedly retweeting a crude character assessment of the Peter Pan of Young Liberals, Christopher Pyne, we decided to prove our fitness for continued life by not giving a crap.

Sadly oxygen thieves are in no short supply in the ACT and before long it was all over all sorts of media and the Canberra Liberals were working themselves into some confected outrage.

Bear in mind that Joy Burch’s inept staff have, in the past, lead her to directly call everyone reading her tweets a Mother F***er.

By contrast merely amplifying someone else describing Minister Pyne as a female sexual organ seems tame.

The greatest sin is that this incompetence has allowed Miranda Devine in the Sunday Telegraph to make a victim of out the former teenage toecutter, before going on to canonise him for his many, in her eyes, sterling virtues.

I’d quite like to see a media release apologising for this. But while still active on Twitter we seem to have stopped make media releases available.

What’s Your opinion?

Beyond the hyperventilation and oh-so-satisfying vulgarity – $1.2bn over four years – in the context of this:

Can’t wait to see what they say about the Commission of Audit report and the 2014-15 Budget.

Thanks for that link, very instructive. A fair whack of that student transport budget is probably ferrying kids to schools further away than they need to go to (like private schools or Catholic schools, another subsidy…)

Of course using c+nt as a pejorative is not terribly creative or intelligent, and not particularly gender-friendly either. By all means call him a prick (though it’s also not creative), and apparently that doesn’t need to be censored by the RiotACT Thought Police either. Go figure.

Pyne is a prick, no doubt. A seemingly nasty, arrogant piece of work.

But at least we now know that it is perfectly acceptable to call Burch a c*nt, as long it is a supposed ‘mistake’.

The woman is a walking embarrassment and completely incompetent. Anyone remember the hands over ears, ‘la la la la’ episode at Bimberi?

Whoops, sorry, I accidentally posted that….

Good on Joy.
I don’t mind my representatives calling it like it is.
If it waddles, swims, and quacks, then it’s probably a duck.

Better question: When will we get an apology for calling the c*** an Education Minister?

NIce work there!

I thought that. In my opinion, Pyne is the biggest c*#t in the world God ever shoveled guts into. No one else’s face on TV rubs me the wrong way like his does.

The bit I love is how an incident like this is an immediate call for resignation, as though running away from a wrongdoing is the only thing to do. Y’know, instead of just taking responsibility. Nice lesson for the kiddies.

What makes you say that?

Katy and Joy wouldn’t have any probs whatsoever if the shoe was on the other foot……carry on, there’s nothing to be seen here…..no siree…….

At least I now know what to call Birch when I see her in public – except to maybe preface it with “useless” or “dumb”.

Masquara 7:43 pm 08 Dec 13

The issue is perhaps more Burch’s lack of judgement, foresight and self-control than her language.

Felix the Cat 7:21 pm 08 Dec 13

I doubt very much that she retweeted this by accident but even so it’s hardly anything to get worked up about. It’s just Twitter, nothing important on the scale of things. Plenty of other things she has and hasn’t done that should be in the spotlight.

Don’t know why politicians in general are so spineless they can’t just fess up and say “Yes, I did it, I farked up, momentary lapse of reason/blonde moment”.

IMO, Pyne and Burch cancel each other out, as they are both seriously cr*p Education Ministers. I thought the stand-out Minister during the Gonski ‘fall out’ was the NSW Minister for Education, Adrian Piccoli. I wish we had HIM representing our educational interests here in the ACT.
