Chris Gayle

Chris Gayle is a Jamaican cricketer who plays international cricket for the West Indies. He is one ofonly four players to score two triple centuries at Test level, and the first batsman in history to hit a double century at a World Cup competition and holds the record for the highest individual score in a T20 match.

Gayle is a great batsman, but has often found himself at odds with the West Indies team administrators, and has been reprimanded and dropped several times for his comments.

But it was during the Australian Big Bash competition in January 2016 where Gayle faced his strongest criticism. While being interviewed by Australian presenter Mel McLaughlin, Gayle said “hopefully we can win this game and we can have a drink after” followed by “Don’t blush, baby.” The sexist remarks were widely criticised in the media as sexist. Fellow journalist Neroli Meadows said Gayle had behaved this way for years and it was done to “humiliate” women.

In May 2016, The Times’ Charlotte Edwardes wrote that Gayle had made lewd remarks when she interviewed. Edwardes wrote that the batsman boasted about having a “very, very big bat, the biggest in the woooorld” and “You think you could life it? You’d need two hands.” Gayle also asked the journalist whether she had had sex with a black man and whether she’d had a threesome.

Chris Gayle is an Insignificant Arsehair. 

Alan Jones

Alan Jones is a radio broadcaster and political commentator. He has also worked as a teacher, a Liberal Party speechwriter and coach of the Australia Rugby Union Team.

Jones is a fearless radio broadcaster, unafraid to take on any issue. Jones and colleague John Laws had for years spent countless hours criticising big companies for their treatment of employees and customers, such as Qantas, Optus, Foxtel and the Big Four banks. However, it was revealed in 1999 that the pair had subsequently been paid to give favourable comment for these companies without disclosing this arrangement to their listeners. It became known as the Cash For Comment affair and, following this, broadcasting regulations were changed.

In 2005, Jones was found to have racially vilified members of the Lebanese community in the lead-up to the Cronulla riots, saying Lebanese males hated Australia, were raping and pillaging, were vermin, and there was a national security crisis. The NSW Administrative Decisions Tribunal ordered him to apologise, but his first attempt was so lame they made him do it again, this time properly.

Jones often espouses conservative views, but also fights against conservative economic orthodoxy on issues like coal-seam gas exploration, which he opposes. However, Jones is also a supporter of the Galileo Movement, an advocacy group which denies the scientific consensus of climate change and believes it is a hoax perpetuated by Jewish bankers and the United Nations to form a world government.

Jones has been sued a tremendous number of times over his career, as well as embroiling himself in a number of contempt of court proceedings. But he is never afraid to speak out. After Prime Minister Julia Gillard changed her government’s 2010 pre-election policy of not installing a carbon tax to combat climate change, Jones zeroed-in on the Prime Minister, cleverly changing her name in his on-air broadcasts from “Julia” to “Ju-liar.”

Jones seemed to have an intense obsession with Gillard. In 2011 he said Gillard was “off her tree” and should be shoved in a chaff bag, taken far out to sea to see if she could swim home. It is not known how often Jones demands attempted murder of Australia’s Prime Ministers. Also, after the recent passing of Gillard’s father, Jones remarked that he had “died of shame” because of the actions of her daughter. Classy.

Alan Jones is a lightning rod for racist, sexist, bigoted people who listen to talkback radio - i.e. Australians. Unfortunately for society and the norms of decency, he is a Significant Arsehair.
