I was a regular reader of the commentary section in The Age and The Australian and very rarely missed the ABC’s Lateline program.
Maybe it was Dr Michael Wooldridge’s response to why sanitary products would not be GST exempt “I have to shave every day, you don’t see me complaining” that did it (and I say again, DR Michael Wooldridge).
Then there was the Bush Administration and the rise of the crazy fundamentalist (ooops, sorry I’m meant to say Evangelical) congregations.
