Joe Hockey, Fading Gigolo

Not that it matters.

But it might be noted that meeting Joe Hockey in private for an hour and a half costs, lately, eleven thousand dollars.

To meet him for four and a half hours costs, probably, thirty-three thousand dollars.

This is eight thousand dollars more than Craig Thomson misspent (on firewood, cigarettes, hookers) IN SEVEN YEARS.

And got two years in gaol for.

Is it illegal to do what Joe does? Take donations that are not recorded? For access, and possible influence, that is secret and profound?

On the Craig scale, it’s worth twenty years.

  1. Karen Middleton took issue with the PM at the COAG meeting earlier this week by reminding him that he thought it a total smear when an Australian journalist asked about him about the systemic corruption of the NSW Liberal party.

    Middleton asked if Abbott had changed his opinion.

    He dodged the question by saying he was there to answer COAG questions only.

    What a mealy mouthed coward he is.

  2. I was not a fan of Michael Pascoe, but since Joe Hockey dismissed him recently in Question Time, I have taken to Michael and hold him ardently to my breast for solace.

    I like this article from today’s Fairfax, among other things it mentions Deutsche Bank and the bank’s Derivatives position.

    For some strange reason when I think of DB (not the reliable and superior Deutsche Bahn) but Deutsche Bank I associate the name Hockey. Don’t know why, I just do.
