Seems that whole “Aborigines vs Julia Gillard” fiasco was caused by none other than one of Gillard’s own staffers. Awkward.
Spin Doctor Media adviser Tony Hodges resigned yesterday after it was revealed he had actually tipped off someone connected with the Indigenous activists about the leader of the opposition’s comments concerning the tent embassy. It is alleged Mr Hodges leaked “grievously misinterpreted” comments and then revealed the location of Tony Abbott, in what appears to be a bungled attempt at embarrassing the leader of the opposition. It is not clear what Mr Hodges told them, but gathering by their angry reaction, it wasn’t pretty. The opposition are now demanding a full inquiry over the massive security breach and what the hell was said to entice such anger.
Psst Oh and by the way, Julia got her shoe back but odds are she won’t be putting that back on her foot.
