WHAT is it with the Jones family and meat production? Lateline/Q&A host Tony's missus, Sarah Ferguson, was the reporterette whose Four Corners' show on abuses in Indonesian abbatoirs knocked the live-cattle industry for six, accusations that a slaughterman was paid to abuse cattle for the activists' cameras emerging only much later.
Now it's the head of the household's turn to wrap dead flesh in another of those unique ABC perspectives. The injury outside the Baiada poultry plant came about, to quote Jones, when "a security guard tried to drive through the crowd."
Watched the video? So what do you reckon? Was it the monstered security guard who caused the trouble by trying to report for work, or do you think it might, just might, be the howling mob that surrounded his vehicle, kicked in its door, tore off the rear-view mirror and, just for good measure, threw quite a few punches through the open driver's window?
If Jones had been handling his wife's Four Corners cattle scoop he would have reported that the cow incited all that kicking and mistreatment.
