Neil Mitchell Vs John Laws

July 30th, 2009 at 10:42pm

A quite extraordinarily bizarre exchange between 3AW Morning Show host Neil Mitchell and retired 2UE Morning Show host John Laws, this morning on Neil’s show.

Lawsie had a great career, but I seriously think he has gone a bit peculiar in his retirement, and I’m forced to wonder what possessed him to ring Neil…is he paying Media Monitors to alert him to mentions of himself? Or has “The Princess” merely grown weary of him talking to her instead of the country (as he said he would when he retired) and so he felt the need to call the most listened to show in Victoria?

I feel for Neil Mitchell who quite understandably had absolutely no idea what that was all about, or what John’s point was. I’m not convinced that John had any idea what his point was either. Perhaps that was the point…perhaps John was fulfilling a bet that he could still have his say, regardless of how trivial, on the radio and get the media interested in it. Today Tonight certainly were interested in it.

Congratulations John…now please go back to your retirement until you can be sensible. We both know that you’re a lot smarter than what you let on in that stupid exchange…you’re not doing yourself any favours.

And if you’re going to sue Neil, include me in your lawsuit would you? You have about as much chance of winning a lawsuit against me as you do against him.

Oh this has been a weird day.

    I first began to think Mr Laws was losing the plot after his bizarre run-in with Derryn Hinch and Bob Rogers who were alfresco dining at a Wooloomooloo restaurant in Sydney shortly after his retirement.

    I had to giggle when Lawsie reportedly called Hunch “a failed alcoholic”, to which Derryn retorted with the retorical question “And you’re a successful one”.

    Apparently Lawsie was keen to go the biff, but Derryn and Bob just sat bemused as for @UE stablemate Mike Carlton unshered him away.

    Of course, Carlton himself had a long running feud with Stan Zemanak.

    I personally have an ongoing feud with Kyle and Jackie O … but I won’t discuss if further here because they are FM Radio shock jcks.

    Do you have any feuds with any presenters Samuel? …

  • 5. Samuel  |  August 4th, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    Feuds? No. Dislike and/or refuse to listen? Yes.

  • 6. legshagger  |  August 7th, 2009 at 11:52 am

    You do seem to have a feud with Barack Obama and The Chielf Turnip Jon Stanhope!

    Looks like I can end my feud with Kyle and Jackie O now … I might redirect my outrage to Alan Jones.

    Whether Barry and Jon realise that I have a feud with them is another matter entirely.

    Redirecting your outrage to Alan seems fair considering our often differing political views…I would respectfully ask you to hold your fury until he is back from sick leave which is currently scheduled for Monday. I always think it’s more fun venting on someone who is able to defend themself.
