    The total surveillance state in 1984 has been used as an example of despotism and tyranny since the book was written. This is exactly the same. I can’t understand why anyone would accept it.

    “Team Australia”. I’m surprised I’ve seen no comment in Crikey, or elsewhere, but when I heard Tony Abbott utter those words I almost fell off the sofa. I can understand that Tony has never seen it, but surely amongst his legion of minders, advisers and speech writers at least one of them has seen the spoof puppet movie “Team America”? Far from girding their loins for the coming struggle, millions of young Australians must be rolling around the lounge room floor in hysterics.
