Peter Garrett is accident prone. One only has to watch his uncoordinated
onstage antics from his rock-star days to see this. Frankly, it's surprising
that he didn't fall off the stage sometime during a Midnight Oil gig and
experience Human Frailty first hand - and break his neck.
But, one only has to consider Keith Richards to realize that some rock stars do
defy the odds to live to an age which challenges actuarial predictions as
well as common sense.
And common sense wasn't in great supply when Mark (Maddog) Latham took in the
washed up rock star and appointed him to be ALP Lap Dog. And Peter has been
messing on the carpet ever since.
He took the dunce's cap in an almost flawless campaign conducted by Kevin
(Pixie) Rudd, in which everyone in the ALP was told to just say 'me too' after John Howard said anything. For some reason
Garrett felt a need to strong to contain - and said that they would 'just
change everything' when they were elected. Oops. You belong to the ALP now
Peter. And the company takes what the company wants.
Now Peter is paying the price. He is going to keep the title of 'Environment
Minister', but he will actually spend his time opening local fetes dedicated to
retarded immigrant Aborigines raped in nuclear war or something. He might call
himself King of the Mountain, but any environment duties requiring a Real Man
have been handed to someone with real balls - the Asian Lesbian: Penny Wong.
We'll just change everything? Well, some of us are enjoying the changes
