“This is hugely damaging and urgently needs resolving” - Vicky Leigh-Pearson, sales director at @JRJsmokedsalmon , stands by the letter (attached) she sent to @AlokSharma_RDG , @BorisJohnson and @RishiSunak on Friday accusing the government of incompetence. No response so far.
@mrcjohnston @pryorlisaB @meadeaut would Leigh Sales or anyone - bar Alan Jones to any woman who steps in his space - do this so bluntly or brutally to Christensen though? Even the nuttiest MPs are treated as sane enough to be asked/given time. Lisa's point about the Murdoch retribution still holds I reckon.
Leigh Sales question to the PM on aged care deaths from COVID: “How did the federal government fail so comprehensively to prevent this tragedy?”
PM’s response. Conmonwealth government put in $1.5billion extra in support for workforce support, PPE and training and training equipment. Leigh Sales: And there were still 673 people dead. “I am asking why you failed.” PM: I don’t agree with your assessment.
Leigh Sales interviews me in a vast surreal studio with everyone metres apart. Goes to air Monday on 730 ABC. Something to check: I favourably mentioned Annabel Crabb three times. “I”ll cut them all out!” Leigh said with a smile, I think.
