Tony Abbott’s daughter is a model. No ordinary model. She does not have a manager. Tony Abbott managers her career.
That’s right, his staff, quite possibly the same ones that your taxes and my taxes are paying for.
As Abbott’s daughter launches her modelling career as an ambassador for the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, she has no professional representation.
Surely that is a slur against every model agency in the country that none of them are up to the job.
When The Sun-Herald called the Australian Turf Club to speak to Ms Abbott about the trend of politicians’ children taking up modelling, the paper was referred to Mr Abbott’s press secretary and told Ms Abbott does not have her own agent.
All requests with that paper were also refused – which sort of defeats the purpose of paying an ambassador in the first place. After all, isn’t an ambassadors job to get publicity. To promote the very thing you are hired to be an ambassador for. That is really not value for money.
The Sun-Herald contacted the office of the Victorian Premier, Ted Baillieu, to speak to his daughters about their modelling careers. His office said they were unavailable for comment.
Who needs to pay for anything, when Daddy’s staff can step in and do so.
