Subject: are you losing the plot there, or serious?
By coincidence I saw your celebrated column of 7/9/07 in my clips which has surely been vindicated regarding your influential call for Howard to hand over the baton nearly 3 months before the vote. On your game there:
Then I read your column yesterday presumably from Canada given the many references where you effectively call for:
- the removal of anti villification legislation by attacking a govt investigation of a complaint by a minority group, which body hasn't even ruled yet. And you a lawyer who upholds due process? Strange.- promote free speech to such extremes I almost expected you to openly authorise burning of the USA flag from the safe distance of the neighbouring country. I don't think so.
Are you suffering psychic shock at the fast paced unravel of the Howard halcyon days? The systematic dismantling that Rudd as PM is undoubtedly qualified to do according to his own lights, as Bureaucrat Man? Is that why you are licking your wounds over in the land of the melting swamp post climate change?
Do you ever get the feeling in moments of introspection that given your political views above and your physical presentation you missed your time in an Australian Freedom and Fatherland Party ie fascism of the 1920-30ies?
In short are you losing the plot?

Postscript#1 18 January 2007
P.P. McGuiness apparently relieved of command of the right wing Quadrant, kick started so rumour has it by CIA anti communist funds decades ago, has a patronising condescending piece of impertinence in The Australian today:
It may well have been written from PP's perch there at the window seat of the Unity Hall Hotal in Balmain where he is often ensconced. And his opinion piece has about as much appeal as wet old carpet at closing time.
Apparently an academy award and a shared Nobel Peace Prize for Al Gore regarding dangerous climate change "makes no sense". PP knows better, or is that noes better (!) than any other career contrarian? Give it up PP - the age of ecological denial was your time in the 20C, now it's our time so shove off by which I really do mean sincerely SHOVE OFF permanently.
God's time will do. It can't be long now.
