It must have been wishful thinking:

The story was based on a Senator Bob Brown news conference which gave the Murdoch press a right bollocking with the promise of more to come. It is not something that News Limited is not used to from timid Australian politicians but I hope it is the start of a campaign that has the potential to be a real vote winner for the Greens.

Goodness knows what the headline writer had in mind because Bob Brown’s only promised return is to Canberra.
