Bob Brown’s been out this week talking about Tasmanian tigers reports The Mercury and a supposedly very big tree with a name that may distress Freudians, Gandalf’s Staff, but according to a search through Google News has had nothing to say on the Western Australian poll results.

Could this be because the Greens were walloped? How odd. Bob is usually very happy to talk – and make entirely unrealistic forecasts.

Don’t say he actually was chastened by the Greens performance at the federal poll.
