Lindsay Tanner is the guest.
Fran Kelly - Rudd shouldn't cut public service while telling private enterprise to keep their staff, take the pain and keep their staff as long as possible... (Yeah, right. Send your company to the wall.)
Piers Akerman, Daily Telegraph. Equity of sharing out the donations made for bushfire relief, do those uninsured have a right to a greater share of the money.
Malcolm Farr - hate him already, why should his donated money go to help those who were insured? Fuck off, why should those uninsured be rewarded for not being insured? Insurance? It's OK, if anything goes wrong Red Cross and the Government will bail us out. I DON'T THINK SO!
Andrew Bolt's blogged on the payouts of donated money for fire victims.
Farr is saying that Rudd has sold the GFC really well. (Funny how I recall him talking down the economy for the first six months or so of his prime ministership.)
Lindsay Tanner. Blah blah blah, Telstra, blah blah blah... Barrie paraphrases this as "So, Telstra has a PR problem? They think because they're the biggest they can bully people."
Well, give Lindsay a kewpie doll. Call him Sherlock. Telstra's had a PR problem for years, when they were Telecom they had the problem. It had something to do with being a monopoly which never made/makes mistakes.
The man on the street segment (Your Shout) is a must this week, amusing. About mincers and so on. In Tasmania at a brewery I think! Cascade. No mincers in Tassie.
LOL Parliament... the toxic bore... they take the piss out of Kev'n. Oh, it's good today! I can't find it in Hansard... I'll keep looking.
The ALP has given so much this week fit for ridicule.
