Ex-Tony Abbott staffer Peta Credlin joins News Corp’s Sunday Telegraph as columnist

credlinPeta Credlin, Tony Abbott’s former chief of staff, has joined News Corp’s Sunday Telegraph as a columnist.

Credlin’s columns, which begin this Sunday, will address issues relevant to every day families and take her audience behind the scenes of political campaigning, according to a report in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph.

“I am a Liberal and I will be upfront — I hope the Coalition is returned because I believe they are best placed to deliver the sort of government Australia needs now,” she told The Sunday Telegraph.

“But I am known for being blunt and candid so I intend to call it as I see it, especially when the politicians look like they’re taking the ­electorate for granted.’’

Credlin will also be contributing to Sky News ahead of the Federal election.
