A petition calling for Annabel Crabb to be sacked as host of ABC1’s Kitchen Cabinet and replaced by outgoing 4 Corners presenter Kerry O’Brien has attracted more than 200 signatures. The call comes following Crabb being repeatedly polite and professional during episodes featuring politicians that the petitioners don’t like.
Earlier this year Crabb came under fire when she showed Treasurer Scott Morrison the same courtesy and respect she showed Senators Penny Wong and Christine Milne in earlier episodes of the program. These earlier episodes did not trigger calls for her sacking. More recently an article in The Conversation has blamed Crabb for the Federal Parliament being full of white people. Sources close to the petitioner revealed that she is also suspected of being involved on the abduction of Azaria Chamberlain.
In addition to calling for Crabb to be replaced by O’Brien, the petition also recommends that the program be moved to the ABC studios in Ultimo, the conversations should take place at a desk instead of a dining table and the food element should be removed altogether.
