Bless You, Too, Annabel, But You Got The Address Wrong!

Annabel Crabb, Bless HerAnnabel Crabb from the Sydney Morning Herald has paid australianpolitics.com a compliment in an article in today’s paper titled Loose lips an occupational hazard for ambitious MPs.

In the context of Peter Costello’s dinner conversations with journalists, Crabb unashamedly recycles the 1987 story of the Jeff Kennett-Andrew Peacock car-phone conversation, referring to the transcript and audio of the conversation on this site.

She says: “The excellent australianpolitics.com website, bless it, has a full transcript of that memorable conversation, if you’re over 18.”

Unfortunately, the address given in the article omits an underscore which would have produced a “page not found” message. The page has been duly replicated to ensure an unbroken internet experience.


Rudd Says Climate Change Is The Great Moral Challenge Of Our Generation

Opposition Leader Kevin Rudd says that climate change is the great moral challenge of our generation.

Speaking at the National Climate Change Summit, Rudd said the dimensions of the climate change challenge were so great that “climate change should be beyond politics”.

In a separate statement, the ALP’s Environment spokesman, Peter Garrett, says “we must act now”. Garrett said Labor would introduce a carbon trading scheme, ratify the Kyoto treaty and develop renewable energy.
