There’s no Holden back Weatherill’s honesty

As the Rann circus packs away the tent and trundles into the political night, the newly arrived Weatherill Show reminds of an end-of-season football trip in 1973, writes Kevin Naughton of InDaily.

Tomorrow, as the Rann circus finally packs away the tent and trundles into the political night, the newly-arrived Weatherill Show reminds me of an end-of-season football trip in 1973.

On that trip from Adelaide to Whyalla and through the towns en route, the team’s bus broke down on day four. It was only as we piled onto a clean replacement bus that we realised how smelly the old one had become.

    It’s still surprising how anyone with a supposed knowledge of what they’re talking about, like “a journalist doing an interview”, could have such little actual knowledge of what they’re talking about and asking questions, such as “how ratings are worked out/and the consequences to a ratings agency if they succumbed to political pressure to upgrade one”?

    The only reason ‘this bus’ smells better than the last one is that the last bus stunk like a bucket of prawns going off in the sun.
    To state that Jay is ‘refreshingly honest’ really does imply that Rann was full of liar liar pants on fire kind of pollywaffle; does it not?
    therefore, it does appear that KN is looking and writing thru very rose coloured glasses here.
    For, you can change the captain but it is still the same sinking ship and Jay is just rearranging the deck chairs.
