Alan Jones – climate change clown

Prominent carbon tax opponent Alan Jones has gone a step further than even most of his avid listeners could handle and given his history of bending the truth, largely related to climate change, it's a surprise anyone still listens to him.

2GB radio talkback host Alan Jones has been one of the most prominent opponents of the carbon tax, and the idea that Julia Gillard had misled Australians about its introduction, coining the term JuLIAR in relation to this policy. And in a speech to the Sydney University Liberal Club he went probably a step further than even his loyal listeners could handle, when he claimed Gillard’s father’s death was attributable to the shame he would have felt about her lying.
