Compare and contrast good backhanders with bad ones. Actually bad one only, that's because it's Alan Jones.

New audio has revealed the shocking severity of radio broadcaster Alan Jones’ tirade against New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern.

The outspoken commentator sparked anger last week when he suggested Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison 'shove a sock down' the Kiwi leader's throat.

And now audio aired by ABC's Media Watch last night showed Jones' original attack on Ms Ardern was far more brutal.  

On August 15, Jones could be heard saying: 'This lightweight New Zealand Prime Minster Jacinda Ardern is challenging Scott Morrison over climate change. Now I hope Scott Morrison gets tough here with a few backhanders … hasn't got a clue this woman'.

The new audio has stirred up fresh calls for Jones to be sacked.


EXHIBIT TWO - not shocked, not disturbed - thanks to Keira Savage for these good backhanders
