The Spectator Australia essay: The agony and the ecstasy

by ericknight

For those in the market for some light entertainment, I recommend this week’s Spectator Australia.

$9 will buy you some very witty writing with the usual average diminished by my own contribution. Apparently it’s the top selling publication in the news agency in Chifley Tower, bang smack in the middle Sydney’s CBD.

I’m not quite sure what that says about the core readership…

I think it says that people want ‘to keep the verity’! There is a call for truth and transparency and voters do intend to hold the government accountable. But we want ideas and vision too. Yet somehow I fear that is too much to expect of a state government and the most one can hope for is good management be it the Liberals or Labor at the helm. What a sad indictment of state politics that I even feel that way!

Great article; it sure provoked a few laughs. Your wit is insightful and we need more journalism like it!
