Fairfax columnist Alex Mitchell—who believes a Jew-hating jihadi killbot is our finest citizen—identifies the major election issue of 2007 (no link available):
Voters have any number of reasons to be angry with the Howard government: the lies about weapons of mass destruction, the 10-year neglect of climate change initiatives, the grovelling to President George Bush, the anti-worker WorkChoices laws, the continued illegal incarceration of David Hicks at Guantanamo, the philistine contempt for the arts and film industry, the unnoticed $300 million worth of AWB bribes to Saddam Hussein, the trilling voice of Alexander Downer, the grim face of Philip Ruddock, the pieties of Kevin Andrews and the snarls of Tony Abbott.
However, what is more likely to influence voters at the next federal election is the political axing of the award-winning ABC-TV program The Glass House, brilliantly hosted by Wil Anderson, Corinne Grant and Dave Hughes.
That load of Alex ran under the headline: “Final act of bastardry”. The laugh’s on him; by the time the next election is held, all Glass House fans will have committed suicide! No votes from dead people, mate, except in certain Labor pre-selection races. Melinda Buttle, our primary source for Glass House despair, has additional details:
The Glass House was more than a TV show it was a modern Australian icon. The Glass House was part of our pop culture and allowed us as a nation to share our concerns in the way Australian’s do best, over a laugh. Therefore, ABC by default you have damaged the cultural fabric of Australia.
I find it ridiculous that you have cancelled what must surely be your most popular program (ed: it wasn’t). Logic leads me to believe that there must be some form of political or social agenda that underpins the removal of this wonderful program.
Actually, all it took was a couple of emails to my friends on the ABC board.
(Joking! It was just one email.)
