Just Give Us the Facts

It is one thing to write an opinon column about the visit to Sydney of Oprah Winfrey, as Tim Dick did in the Sydney Morning Herald last weekend (and I agree with everything he said):

That man who claims to be running Qantas received an apology from the Australian because they mocked his accent. I think those "30- to 70-something women" deserve one too.


  1. "30- to 70-something women", eh? Why not simply say "Monstrous regiment" and be done with it.

  2. I think he thought he was being restrained because he didn't say 'a crowd of really dumb old slags'.

  3. Maybe he is indeed regarded as a silver-tongued cavalier down at his local bar!
