  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Congratulations. by kazzzz on 25 January 2007 1:06pm
Congratulations to Tim Flannery, environmental scientist who has been voted as Australian of the Year :)

Johhny Howard put his foot in it yet again, he asked one of the nominees what part of the world he was born in, using exaggerated hand gestures and speaking slowly.... and the guy (of Asian appearance) answered "Adelaide"!

Wot an arse Johnny is.

Oh, I just LOVE it when politicians' preconceived notions get them to put their foot in their mouth. Sounds like Howard put his whole leg in on this one.

In the great tradition of Australian politicians!

Didn't Johnny (Howard) look mighty uncomfortable when Flannery made his speech. LOL!

Kazzzz - do you reckon since Rudd/Gillard assumed the ALP leadership, Howard is looking a little like yesterday's news?

Kaz, in the Arizona Daily Star, we have roses for the positive and thorns for negatives. So roses for Tim Flannery and thorns for the PM. Sounds as though you really like the PM LOL!
