Hinch’s Senate Diary: on One Nation’s Brian Burston and other boofheads

I called a fellow Senator a "boofhead" on Twitter the other day. I regret nothing.

Derryn Hinch — Senator

Derryn Hinch


With all the nostalgic media hoopla surrounding the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Di, you could be forgiven for assuming that the "Palace letters" had something do with her or Chuck or Camilla.

Maybe an acerbic exchange between Prince Philip and the Princess of Wales, telling her to pull her pretty head in.

    It clearly takes a certain mental state to be a One Nation senator….

    On an irretrievably tabloid mind would imagine that Crikey readers would think the Palace Letters referred to Lady Diana.
    The story has been well covered here & elsewhere by far more informed, and better, writers, not least Hoking herself.
    To then equate a US S/S card with the proposed Australia Card shows the shallowness of understanding we expect.
    Then he rehashes, what else, his own self image.
    Another tawdry, information free, self advertisement.
