Enough about Alan & Tony

Monday 8 October 2012 11:01 PM

Quite magnanimous of The Age (Letters, Tuesday) to publish Roger Stagg’s observation that 46.7 percent (14 of 31) of letters printed Monday, related to Tony Abbott. Also quite ironic, given that on Tuesday itself 53.3 percent (16 of 30) related to either Tony Abbott or Alan Jones. More ironic still in light of Lindsay Tanner’s polite suggestion on Monday’s Q&A that matters of greater substance might merit more of the nation’s attention. Please wake me up when it’s over.
