John Laws has taken another swipe at Alan Jones this afternoon, telling Southern Cross radio listeners he does not know why people fear the opinions of his rival. "There seems to be a certain fear of Alan, maybe because he is such a viscous old tart," he said."I don't know but there seems to be an element of fear that exists."Why I don't know because he does have a big rating but he only talks to Sydney."

How ironic that the Laws - Jones fiasco was unfolding just as Derryn and Blackers' were sipping on the bubbly at the launch of Derryn's book and proof that time heals all wounds. Some how though the Jones v Laws stoush is going to be eternal.
