SA’s Two Old Blokes won’t sate an appetite for government certainty

Two men seem certain to decide the next government of South Australia. And it all started with a plate of warm lasagne, writes Kevin Naughton in Adelaide for InDaily.

The TV cameras homed in on a slab of warm lasagne and lashings of roast pork with crackling as Adelaide’s Two Old Blokes sat down yesterday in the Parliament House cafe to ponder their next adventure.

While the food world mourns the loss of Two Fat Ladies’ junior partner, the delightful Clarissa Dickson Wright, our collective eyes remain on the odd bods who will decide which party forms government in South Australia. Similar contradictions that made the Two Fat Ladies so popular as celebrity chefs on the famous BBC program are being played out in Parliament House this week.

    Can’t wait for them to decide who wins. Vive le Coalition. With only two holding the balance of power and a male party leader regardless, it might be a bit tamer than the last one unfortunately.
    I’m hoping it is Labor just to see the nonsense that would be written in The Advertiser for the next three years

    The nonsense in the ‘Tiser would last for four years (that’s how long the term is). And if the current experience of Canberra and “The Australian” is any indication, maybe even longer!
