I have been a fan of Annabel Crabbe since her more serious journalistic days and stayed with her through her froth and bubble days, but her column Sun Herald 31st August – “Inconvenient truth we all face on sex abuse” caused me to think we may have the old Annabel back.
She covered the multi cases of sex abuse (even in England) without resorting to religious bigotry and appeared to be even handed in acknowledging that “the focus is very much on institutions” as required by Julia Gillard in setting up the Royal Commission to cover all institutions and organisations, unlike her colleague a few pages back.
So – good luck Annabel. I am pleased to have you back and look forward to more balanced commentary. Your type of serious journalism is so easy to read – serious without heavy.
