Cardinal Pell? Never met him.

10 PM September 30, 2004

I don't recall meeting with Cardinal Pell (who is a fine man) during the election campaign. If you don't recall meeting with Cardinal Pell (who is a fine man,) you should say so, too. It's important to be clear and upfront about these things, or people will get the wrong idea.

Health minister Tony Abbott isn't afraid to not recall meeting Cardinal Pell (who is a fine man) during the election campaign. He spoke forthrightly on the ABC's Lateline last night:


TONY JONES: Tony Abbott on another matter, have you met Archbishop Pell during the election campaign?

TONY ABBOTT: Not that I can recall.

TONY JONES: Not that you can recall, because we believe that you've had at least one meeting with him quite recently?

You don't recall that?

TONY ABBOTT: Well, when?

Where?

TONY JONES: At the presbytery in Sydney.

TONY ABBOTT: Ah, actually now that you do mention it, I did met with Cardinal Pell.

So what?

Why shouldn't I meet with Cardinal Pell?

TONY JONES: Why couldn't you recall meeting him, I think, 10 days ago?

TONY ABBOTT: Look, whenever it was, so what?

Why shouldn't I meet Cardinal Pell.

Cardinal Pell is a fine man.

What is going on with your politicians? They obviously haven't learned to lie like the expert US politicians. :)
