The Sunday Age’s Terry Lane, now returned from his brief vacation, condemns John Howard over the Prime Minister’s lack of concern for … well, read on:

On Australia Day, the Prime Minister looked out over the harbour from Kirribilli and declared that ours is the greatest nation on Earth.

And why not? He didn’t have to deal with Connex trains or buy a first home on an impossible mortgage. He probably doesn’t care about the mighty mountains and great lakes that we don’t have or the first-class education system that has gone missing.

No mighty mountains or great lakes? Perhaps Howard can calm Terry by creating a local Grand Canyon.

(The rest of Lane’s column amounts to a plea for millions of dollars to be given to “our own Mamdouh Habib”.)
