Will you look at the time, it's 1950 already...

Everybody has their secret shame and one of mine is that I have, for some time, actually quite liked Peter Costello. Oh shut up. I don't agree with his politics, obviously, but I've always sort of suspected he might be quite fun when really, really drunk. But No. Fucking. More. Because, my god, I have just heard him use the phrase "reds under the bed". What a wanker.

I heard that to. Nothing like fear to get a conservative government voted back in. Pure, unadulterated fear.

I meant I heard that too. Obviously.

I'm with you on the once secret like of Costello but Kato. His politics are abhorrent, but he is actually very funny and witty when given half a chance.

The smirk is hideous however.

Thanks Thom, I feel a little less dirty now. I still think he'd be fun to sit next to at a dinner party but only if you didn't know he was Peter Costello or perhaps only if you were allowed to hit them every so often.

He was actually using that in jest. And it got the response from the audiance he was after...

You should see the man go during question time...he is top of his game.

Yeah I know he was going for the laugh with the 'Labor would have you believe there are only conservatives under the bed' bit but he mentioned the commies AGAIN later. I think he's a smart little whippet but he's still a conservative cockspank.
