    Who can say? Barring someone keeling over the election is two years off.

    I'm not saying Tony is overly negative, but when he propose his plebiscite on the Carbon Rax today, he was asked on sydney radio whether he would be abide by the outcome if the voters said yes tote tax, and said "No".

    Yeah, really looking forward to it. Someone at work knows one of the guys on the show. She said he was a knob, will be interesting to see how he comes across. Will have to find out who it is again.

    Conquering the known world kind of gives you the right to be self-important. Hosting Music Max, telling funnies or wriing tosh for the Institute of Public Affairs kind of doesn't.

    Haha. Fair enough.

    A lot of those panel members can't stick their necks out as their heads are so far up their own arses.
