Itís true! The Howard-supporting immigration hardliner will be booted out of Australia this month. Exclusives donít get much more exclusiver than this!

I would rather have a million immigrants like Jonesy than a dozen like Mohammed.

I'm confused - this Alan R M Jones isn't the Parrot, right?

If Tim had discovered Alan 'The Parrot' Jones had a wife and son, that would be a yarn!

Sorry, wife and daughter.

Jeezus, a SON and DAUGHTER.

Either way, it would be a stunning revellation!

Droll, guys very droll :-) Jeezus, when are we going to accept reality - rather than interpret life according to preconceived ideas?

The only reason we can't call the parrot what he is, is because it is a feint for stopping us calling Pompous Ass in terms more disparaging than Prof Bunyip does.

Proscribe calling someone a poofer includes calling someone a left-wing ratbag.

I would rather be gay than P dot A.

He finished second at an Elkhart Lake Indycar race one year. 1984? Mario Andretti broke his neck at Pocono or something...

Alan Jones may not have a sons or daughter, but I've heard he has a lot of nephews.

Aussies really boot people?
It's amazing what you learn from watching the Simpsons.
