Opposition Leader Tony Abbott rang up a phone bill (no pun intended) of $33,523 for the six months to December 31 2012, but the journalist who embarrassed us with Utegate, Steve Lewis, headlines this with Prime Minister Kevin Rudd racks up $29,676 phone bill in six months.
That earth shattering revelation shared equal top billing on news.com this morning with Minister Kate Lundy left in dark over Kevin Rudd’s reshuffle where we read that:
Having fashioned himself as consultative, kinder Kevin, the Prime Minister failed to personally call a female minister to tell her she was losing a plum portfolio.
Gosh, he should have called her. Steve Lewis could have added the 30 cents to his phoney headline.
