Mackerras did not bother to immediately open the official-looking letter from Government House …
After all, the distinguished political commentator was used to receiving letters from the Governor-General’s residence and decided it could wait. “I thought to myself that’s just another case of me being asked my opinion about someone else who is being proposed for an honour,” he said. “Three hours later I opened it up and was astonished to discover that this was actually a letter to say, ‘You are being considered for appointment’.”
The Howard bandname now is poisonously tainted, and in its final, twitching throes. And a belated, failed Costello coup in March, round his tenth anniversary, will grievously wound him, and the compromise cleanskin candidate Malcolm [Turnbull] triumphant by Father’s Day, which will give him a year to regain ground, if he can, against Beazley.
And will Beazley win? Oh, yes.
You see if I am right.
