Mark Latham wins – too late.
Oh the irony! The Canberra charts reappear and Mark Latham has finally hit Number One – too late and for all the wrong reasons.

He can draw some small comfort, I guess. The Glimmer Twins didn’t tie
on the charts with a cover of their namesakes’, “Time Is On My Side”.

However, there’s not much good news for the Labor leader from the chart.

His backing vocalists are ranking well. The only problem is that very
few of them are singing the same song. Indeed, Labor is producing a
cacophony.

Whoever would have through that something that makes Schoenberg sound like Strauss could be so popular?
