Rachel's Blog: Australia: State of Fear - John Bell

Thu, 26 Jan 2006

I'd like to give Howard credit for successfully stirring up debate by declaring the debate over, but I'll bet he didn't mean to.

I believe we shall never achieve a uniqueness, a sense of self, until our head of state, the person recognised internationally as our chief representative, is one of us.

Edit to add: I just noticed the Freakish possibilities. Anyone up for giving John Howard a makeover? "One of us! One of us!" (That will absolutely not make sense if you haven't seen the cult-horror film Freaks, but you should.)
