Broadcaster's comments on Jacinda Ardern draw flaks

Mr Morrison told reporters at the Pacific Islands Forum on Thursday that Jones's comments were "way out of line". And to that extent I have erred and made a mistake.

"But I will continue to positively engage with our Australian friends and try to persuade them to make a more rapid transition from coal to energy sources that do not contribute to climate change", he said.

Jones called Arden a "joke" and "a complete clown" over her comments and views on climate change.

"Here she is preaching on global warming and saying that we've got to do something about climate change". "I'll leave others to explain what they've said and how they've said it".

Bainimarama says some of these differences inevitably weaken the strength of their collective position on the climate threat and it is disappointing that they could not achieve a unanimous consensus.

It's expected Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison will push back on any attempts to include tougher climate change goals or a reduction on coal use in the communique.

A change.org petition calling for an advertising boycott drew tens of thousands of signatures and on Thursday ME Bank announced it had pulled its ads from Jones's show.

"Former PM Malcolm Turnbull and current PM Scott Morrison have also weighed in, expressing their disappointment at the remarks aired yesterday when he suggested told his audience that the NZ Prime Minister was "... a joke, this woman, an absolute and utter lightweight ...

"As we negotiate a successor agreement, we must ensure that the new agreement is founded on the principle of genuine "partnership of equals" between the Pacific and the European Union, recognising the need to address the unique challenges and vulnerabilities of the Pacific Island countries", PM Bainimarama said.

"I just wonder whether Scott Morrison is going to be fully briefed to shove a sock down her throat".

He said in that statement he had been misinterpreted, and while saying he "would not wish any harm to Jacinda Ardern" he did not apologise at that point.

"We expect the Pacific to ultimately receive two thirds of the overall fund and today we begin to deliver this".

Mr Jones has used aggressive language towards female politicians before, most notably in 2011 when he said then-prime minister Julia Gillard should be "put in a chaff bag and thrown out to sea".

Jones has repeatedly been criticised for misogynistic and other offensive comments over many years, and has usually offered apologies or been found by the regulator not to have breached standards.

Speaking on the Australian radio on Friday, Mr Turnbull, who has regularly clashed with Jones, lashed out at the shock jock.
