Labor Mandarin Bob Carr: a Serf For Mohammedan Savages?
Former foreign minister Bob Carr has hit out at what he calls the “pro-Israel lobby in Melbourne”, saying it wielded “extraordinary influence” on Australia’s policy during his time in Julia Gillard’s cabinet.
Mr Carr told 7.30 that he lost weight in his first month as a jet-setting foreign minister because of “living on planes” and eating “inherently unhealthy” airline food which “I thought would’ve knocked about two years off my life”.
“Living on airline food and food at official banquets offended every rule of life I adhere to on this front,” he said.
Faced with a choice, having to get off a plane and go straight to a meeting with the French foreign minister in Paris, I tell you what, I’d prefer first class any time.
