Who is Peta Credlin?

I’ve asked the question, but I’m sorry if you came here looking for the answer. I can’t give it to you.

We all know that she’s Chief of Staff to Tony Abbott and we all know the power she wields. She is in the news, almost daily, and it usually revolves around some form of use of this power.

So, out of interest, I thought I’d like to learn more about this powerful woman. The first thing one usually does in their learning quest is turn to Wikipedia. Even if the content is questionable, at least it’s the only place on the Internet that will have an entry about everybody or everything. You name it; it’ll be there.

But not so with Pete Credlin. Australia’s most powerful woman doesn’t rate an entry. Her husband Brian Loughnane does. His entry says he is married to Peta Credlin.

Her absence from Wikipedia can only be put down to one of two reasons. Firstly, she isn’t a person of interest or importance. Secondly, she is a person of interest but somebody has made the decision that all information about her is not to be made public. I tend to go with the latter. It fits in with the new Government’s fanaticism with secrecy and censorship.

What do you think?
