    ‘And the Adelaide Ovaal scoreboard did display have my dad’s and Don Bradmans’s names with a century agianst weach. My mother, as expected, was very much overcome when she saw it. So was my brother.’

    Excellent touch!

  2. Albo is just where the PM. wants him to be…doing his job(and it BETTER be good!) and within sight!……He’s safe.

  3. Carr is too smart-mouthed to be a threat and too saavy to be anything else than FM…..He”ll stay.

  4. Sava ought to do something about her choice of hairstyle…the page-boy is more suited for a less devious person..she looks like the “wicked stepmother” in a wig!

  5. Leone,

    Oh, I thought Ms Harvey’s nice comments were … nice. They certainly made a pleasant change from the Smellie’s usual offerings.

    However, I do wish that these “journalists” would stop making things up.

    If only dogs could talk – Reuben’s inside knowledge would be a scoop to die for!

  6. Good morning everone.

    So pleased everything went well for you, today will be more tiring than yesterday. Have a great time.

    Fiona
    I was too late to warn you, glad you got the message.

    As for that galaxy poll, no change in voting intention, bode well that there could be improvement in the future.

  7. BK,

    Yesterday sounds amazing; I hope today is just as great.

    SK,

    Happy Birthday to #1 Cherub and happy day to the proudest mum in the world (give or take a few …).

  8. I think I’ve got Anthony Albanese’s words parsed correctly from Sky Agenda this morning, after catching up with it just now on ABC24.

    He’s saying he would never vote against a sitting Prime Minister that was challenged to a vote. Therefore, if Kevin Rudd had challenged he would never agree to be his Deputy, even if he won.

    However, what he didn’t say but was alluded to was that he WOULD agree to be Deputy PM in a Rudd government if the position was handed to Rudd on a platter with the overwhelming majority of MPs and factions agreeing to it.

    Slimy and slippery position to take.

    Interesting also to note that Rudd has wanted him as his Deputy since 2005. The Right faction, now since splintered, must have demanded Wayne Swan be Rudd’s Deputy. Which Rudd as much as admitted yesterday with his ‘I was magnanimous in my gesture to include Swan, Conroy & Smith in my Cabinet’ statement. BS, of course. He was forced to include them by the Right against his will and probably in exchange for getting that concession that he could choose which Ministries they got.

  9. space kidette,
    Lucky cherubs to have such an amazing Mum. They succeed on the field because you succeed as their mum. 🙂

    Congratulations!

  10. It pisses me off that the ABC pay the likes of Savva and Henderson for their appearances on The Insiders and, something in the order of $300. The likes of the two mentioned and Akerman et al are not worth 30c.

    I don’t know if Cassidy does the choosing of his panel or whether it is done for him. However, it is time Aunty began to turn away from this rubbish of interviewing Murdoch/Fairfax journalists and went back to straight, unbiased reporting WITHOUT imposing upon us the opinions of those who don’t even bother to take in the facts but prefer to report gossip and innuendo.

  11. BK,
    Ditto for you, dear sir(though not the ‘mum’ bit 😉 ). That wedding sounds like it was a fairytale wedding made real by an outstanding Wedding Planner. 🙂

  12. foreverjanice,
    Barrie Cassidy has got between Buckley’s and no chance of getting the balance he probably personally craves for Insiders, while ever Mark Scott is at the helm of the ABC directing the whole show for you know who.

  13. I gave up on Insiders a long time ago. For a long. long time I’ve only bothered if Barry was interviewing someone who interested me, I don’t watch the rest. I am bright enough to understand what was said without some dingbat journo telling me what they think the guest said or, more often, should have said.

    I think my fed-uppedness happened after Latham lost his election. There was the panel the next moring doing great impersonations of stunned mullets in mourning. What could have gone wrong? They thought Latham would win. The glaring obvious, the huge elephant sitting slap bang in the mddle of the lounge – their constant trashing of Latham and Labor for months – was not mentioned.

    These days no-one even pretends to support Labor, the whole damn show is just a Sunday morning Abbott worship service more often than not. Why would you bother?
