  • @smurray38 A Fraser remark about McEwen in the Memoirs has me now reading Peter Golding's Black Jack – one of the unread in my collection. in reply to smurray38 #

  • @JudeEkerick Fair dinkum, you're a hard-to-please shiela. By crikey, you are. Fair suck of the sauce bottle, luv. in reply to JudeEkerick #
  • @smurray38 I think the sad truth is most of them are just not very reflective. Look at the rubbish Menzies wrote. in reply to smurray38 #
  • @JudeEkerick @smurray38 I don't agree with all this media flim-flam about Rudd's authenticity. He has some very irritating qualities… #
  • @JudeEkerick @smurray38 …but his public persona is remarkably consistent, calm and clear. He mixes well. He by-passes the 'insiders'. #
  • @smurray38 Even so, Hasluck is a very honourable exception to all these criticisms. He left a good body of work. in reply to smurray38 #
  • @JudeEkerick @smurray38 And don't forget these pygmies we waste our time listening to say all these things about every Labor leader… #
  • @JudeEkerick @smurray38 Whitlam was arrogant, Hayden was weak, Hawke was volatile, Keating was foul-mouthed – there's always something! #
  • @smurray38 I don't think they read either. This is the signature in my pristine second-hand copy of Golding: http://twitpic.com/19c0c8 in reply to smurray38 #
  • @JudeEkerick You're excused… in reply to JudeEkerick #
  • Climate change strikes again… http://twitpic.com/19c0ub #
