    Chessell clearly has a career in PR. but sadly not one in serious journalism.

    An all too true Abottism – “If the end doesn’t justify the means, what does”?

    Abbott – He took to Hanson like a drunk to water.

    If you’ve said Nathan Lambert and James Boyce were an item I’d have been appalled. Not because it’s same-sex but they’re of right and wrong politics (OK, the ALP is wrong too but not as wrong).

    Still, it wouldn’t have been as bad as when I heard that Kate Ellis and David Penberthy were living together, which is just sick.
