Herald Sun can no longer accomodate singers columns but wish her well in the future... http://www.theage.com.au/lifestyle/...boned-from-tabloid-column-20120301-1u5t1.html Jill Singer. JOURNALIST Jill Singer has been ''boned'' from the Herald Sun after 15 years as a columnist but is hoping it's too early to declare an ''annus horribilis''. Editor Simon Pristel wrote her a letter, saying the opinion pages could no longer ''accommodate'' her column but wished her well for the future. Singer isn't feeling too optimistic after losing a WorkCover compensation claim for her disabled partner, Peter Davidson, the Federation Square architect who had a stroke 18 months ago. This follows last year's email stoush with architect Don Bates about her partner's health. Singer poured her heart out on Twitter, saying a column she wrote about caring for Davidson was knocked back, but when I asked Pristel if this was the reason for her ''boning'', he said: ''To quote a certain tennis player, you cannot be serious.'' Thanks, John McEnroe. Singer lamented that her column was replaced by one about Lara Bingle, Kim Kardashian and reality TV, and she made a gibe that women should only write about ''women's issues''. Singer told me: ''I am disappointed I didn't get a phone call. I would have liked to have been told why.'' Andrew Bolt is unlikely to be too upset because last year he thundered that ''If I ran this paper I'd sack Singer'', the ''resident feminist ideologue'', after she had a go at Tony Abbott for saying women needed to save their virginity for marriage. Pristel, who ran a photo of a giant pumpkin on page one yesterday, needs to remind Bolt that he's in charge of when the soup's on.
