Bill Shorten ? [Oct. 9th, 2008|09:33 am]

In a video from Sky News embedded in an opinion piece by Bill Leak from The Australian dated October 7th. 2008 journalist Samantha Maiden notes that she doesn't want to stop the progress of Home and Away in this country and struggles to understand why Bill Shorten (The Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Children's Services) was given a "AAA" tour around with a St Kilda Primary (School) Principal.

An edited version of the video clip has found it's way onto YouTube and arises from David Marr's contemplation of the disagreeable nature of Bill Leak's cartoon noting that while Bill Henson may be an acclaimed artist he isn't Mohammed.

"We don't have any comment on the story," Mr Rudd's spokesman said regarding Bill Shorten allegedly being in love ( journalist Sharri Markson September 21, 2008 ) with the daughter of our current Governor General Quentin Bryce.

Samantha Maiden is The Australian's Political Correspondent. She joined the Canberra press gallery in 1998 and has covered state and federal politics for over a decade.

The Australian $ has collapsed ! (sigh)

IT’S the biggest rate cut since Paul Keating’s recession we had to have. (Samantha Maiden Tuesday October 7th 2008)

I watched that and I think the reference to shorten was a slip of the tongue.

Pretty funny really!

The story was all about Bill Henson and how he was able to get access to a school for his controversial artwork.
