ANOTHER CONSPIRACY has been detected by reader Bernard M, who got it from Pastor Terry Lane last Sunday.

It seems John Howard has a plan to separate Australia from that source of all security and hope, the UN.

That's a bit of a worry. Without the UN to connect us to the world, Australia, weighed down as ever by Melbourne, will slip inexorably down the globe and bang up against Antarctica. Which is where we started anyway.

On the other hand, there'll be plenty of ice for the whisky, and those junketing overseas relatives will need an ice-breaker to disturb our peace.

Thanks for telling me anyway.
