Party poopers. Education Minister Christopher Pyne is everywhere this week promoting his memoir, Letter to My Children, including a fluffy interview last night on 7:30. He is also due to be launching the book on Friday night in Melbourne with Prime Minister Tony Abbott, in a swanky event hosted by the Menzies Centre. Crikey staff had booked tickets to the auspicious occasion, hoping to nab a signed copy from the Fixer himself. But after booking tickets a week ago, we were told today that as the event had sold out, and our tickets were void. Is that really the case? We in the bunker were so looking forward to it, but maybe we aren’t conservative enough.
