Crikey says: ditch the Twitch

Rundle reviews the key players in Iraq. The shadowy company behind Tinkler’s horse stud. Troy Bramston demolishes Rudd. Mar’n Ferguson’s revolving door at Seven. No Woolies conspiracy -- so where are the Fairfax papers? Voters don’t trust the PM overseas. And did Frances Abbott get off too lightly? A tenancy worker responds.

Rock-jawed Fairfax lifestyle columnist Sam de Brito — known to some as “half-Brito” — is not happy with ideologues and “angry women with blogs”.

“We all know someone with a one track mind, who seems incapable of seeing the world outside of their telescopic singularity …To this list I’d add much of the political class in this country — the rabid right and moaning left which, of course, includes our many Twitter-obsessed feminists,” writes the Smage’s bloke on the street in his latest missive.

    Just out of curiosity, was this from a single member of Crikey’s Monstrous Regiment, the fearsomely mordant Ms Tips or the dulcet & reasonable CA?
    No matter, the point is sound & well made. Thank you.
