There are rumours that the palace's refusal to invite him to the wedding was neither oversight nor overslight but a fear that Barack and Michelle would appear to the "black Commonwealth" as superior to Charles and Camilla as future leaders of the Commonwealth.

LOL! This isn't really meant to be serious, is it?

Difficult to say: Geoffrey Robertson: leftist "human rights lawyer", anti-monarchy, smugly satisfied with his own brilliance.

He used to run TV Hypotheticals, basically improv theatre where public figures examined possible real-life situations using their experience. Entertaining until you realized the moderator (Robertson) was the only one with a script, like what he wrote. Then it became meh.

My illumination was: Future hostile Indonesian Government goes nuclear. Air Garuda 747 with "something" under the wing is heading directly towards the Pine Gap Aust-US defence facility, not answering RAAF fighter calls. what to do?

retired RAAF officer (playing Chief of Air Staff): "Defence Minister, clear and present danger, recommend shoot down"

retired politician(playing Defence Minister): "Agree, shoot it down"

Robertson then steps in and overrules them, because he wants the US Navy to do it over Australian soil.

(Back to article) 'Cut and paste' is a regular feature of The Australian, highlighting balther and contradictorily statements published in the MSM. (For some reason, most examples come from the Left)
