PARACHUTE PETE GARRETT'S arrival on the landing strip at Kingsford Smith electorate, prior to his teleporting to Canberra, raises in reader G's mind a curious coincidence.
Auntie is, he tells me, about to issue a compilation of Midnight Oil's leaping, shouting, posturing best.
Perhaps G is paranoid. After all, he admits that he was employed by Auntie earlier in his career.
On the other hand, would you call a rugby league player's wife paranoid if she checked her wardrobes before joining her husband in the marital bed each night.
Auntie goes for the ideological gang-bang like rugby players after a team bonding session. You never see Auntie doing a cross-promotion of anyone to the right of Garrett.
