    Sex hotline pensioner labels Abbott

    The pensioner whose work on a phone sex hotline earned a prime ministerial wink on Wednesday has labelled Tony Abbott’s reaction to her call “sleazy” and “slimy”.

    Abbott told breakfast television on Thursday morning that he regretted the gesture.

    The call by Gloria, who is from Warburton in Victoria, to the prime minister on ABC radio in Melbourne, went viral on Wednesday after video footage emerged showing Abbott wink at host Jon Faine when the grandmother mentioned her work in the adult industry.

    “I just survive on $400 a fortnight after I pay my rent, and I work on an adult sex line to make ends meet,” she told Abbott, questioning budget plans to charge a $7 co-payment on visits to the doctor.

    The prime minister was condemned on social media and labelled “a total creep” by Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young, who said Abbott’s position as minister for women was effectively untenable.

    On ABC radio again on Thursday, Gloria said Abbott’s reaction had been “sleazy, slimy” and had drawn increased attention to the harshness of the budget for pensioners. “If he hadn’t [made the gesture], I’m sure what I said would have been forgotten by now,” she said.

    Well, I agree.

    Voluntary visits to the doctor should be charged at $7 that keeps the time-wasters out of the system. However, if the doctors books one a follow up visit that should be paid fore by the system. (In any country)

    Pensioners and others can be accommodated for in other ways.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.

    Thought she'd have a bit thicker skin coming from that line of work.

    Yes, he did wink. I think he thought she was setting him up on the phone, because let's face it, you do not hear of many sex working grannys, so he winked to the radio announcer, and then belatedly realised she was serious.

    What a storm in a tea cup.

    Fookin lefties have at any excuse.
