Woolworths community and government relations manager Simon Berger is listed as the donor of the chaff bag jacket that was autographed by Alan Jones and auctioned at a function.
The chaff bag is an appalling reference to Alan Jones’ comment that Julia Gillard should be tied in a chaff bag and dumped out to sea.
I am utterly appalled that a Woolworths representative would condone and make light of a public urging to kill the Prime Minister.
At the same event, Alan Jones made a vicious and hateful remark that the PM’s father “died of shame” -- but Simon Berger didn’t see fit to question that.
To say Simon attended as a private citizen is absolute rubbish. His job description is government relations. Don't think you can fool the public with that spin.
Woolworths’ reaction to this is a disgrace, and Simon Berger should be immediately removed from his position as government relations manager.
Woolworths should STOP not SUSPEND advertising for a 12 month period.
