Just kidding. Didn't have the strength last night. Do now. I wish there was more poetry in politicians. I remember feeling envious when the Czechs elected a playwright their president. About the only Oz politician with a public aesthetic I can think of would be Al Grassby!! Oh those outfits. Hang on, what about Don Dunstan? There was a cultivated fellow. Don't see his like around these days. Like you say, all spin.
How about Australian Story on Phillip Ruddock last night? What a brave daughter.
