    Won’t somebody PLEASE do a music/video collage of Abbot’s Umm’s Ah’s and Papal (or aspirationally phallic) hand gestures?!

    I would be interested to know how many past MP’s widows or widowers are on the taxpayers payroll.
    I know of at least one in my area , namely Alexander Downer’s mother “Lady Mary Downer” .
    I’m certain they receive much more then the age pension or the Workstart allowance. Perhaps Crikey could investigate.

    I thought it was good when I saw it.Later watching the Robert Redford version, I realised just how good Baz’s version was. Not bloated at all.

    Redford’s version was quite drab by comparison.

    Orwell admired Henry miller because the books stuck in the mind and seemed somewhat better in hindsight, than perhaps they were at the time. Baz’s films shares some of that quality.
