Eureka! I have unravelled the riddle of the sphinx. Remember when our PM-in-waiting, Tony Abbott warned us not to take his spoken comments as truth: We should only believe his scripted comments. And now I know why.
His spoken comments have not been cleared through Margie; but his scripted comments have and so we can accept these.
Wonderful isn’t it to get two for the price of one – If the Coalition wins next year we get two Prime Ministers for the price of one.
