WHAT A GIFT Richard Alston has given to Ron Brunton and any other ABC Board members who believe in quality public broadcasting.

He's put Biffer and the boys and girls of the commune on a hiding to nothing. They've got to claw their way up hill against the weight of the $25 mill cut that no-one has even noticed, and Alston will, of course, deny.

If that doesn't create a climate of sweet reason, nothing will. Short of sending a very large bulldozer to Harris Street.
