Interviewed by the Age, Phillip Adams roams mastodon-like over some familiar territory:

Adams has his own theory on the dearth of political satire in Australia: the left has lost its sense of humour. “What’s left of the left has felt so vanquished, so hopeless,” he says. “You’ve got to have a sense of humour otherwise the vast epidemic of depression seeps into your clowns and your clowns get sad faces. The entire world of the left is now sombre, dull and worried at the moment. So it’s desperately depressed. They’re all on life support and there are no laughs in that.”

Oh, cheer up, Phil. Sad clowns are hilarious.
