Ugh. It’s been so appalling that it’s taken me days to process it sufficiently to write even these few sentences.
The attitude of our MSM to the flyby visit of HRH Prince Harry of Wales has been cringemaking. Apparently all you need to scrub clean a waster “I’m so un-PC” playboy reputation is turning up to a major British Commonwealth occasion in a dress uniform and having handlers in place to make sure you don’t get to ever make a speech. At least he never got too comfortable during the event, what with the excessive forelock-tugging on display from the Abbott family and the LNP entourage. That must have been terribly irritating, oh dear how dreadful nevermind.
Also in Abbott government news: expenses charged to the taxpayer and pushing the Indonesians totally offside.
