This is Uncle's considered diagnosis of Pastor Lane's pathetic condition after Sunday's National Interest on Radio National.

After the routine gloat about the higher tariffs imposed on South Australians by their "foreign-owned" electricity generators, the Pastor turned his mind to something truly shocking.

About one million Australians are working overseas! Lots in the US!

We must get them back! But how?

Perhaps we should pay them at global rates? Like those greedy CEOs we love to hate.

You're not trying to tell me ....

Do you see why Uncle concludes the Pastor's patron saint is Groucho, not Karl?
