More crackers from the great comedian - Chief Minister's talkback

By 6 March 2009 27

Chief Minister's talkback on 666 is normally a dull collection of whinges getting flat batted back down the pitch. But Chief Minister Stanhope was back in fine form this morning in his role as the funniest man who ever lived. Alex Sloan also chimed in as straight-person. Personally I loved his...

The SMH brings word of the experience that a decidedly non-capacity 20,032 crowd enjoyed tonight watching Kuwait triumph 1-0. Having watched WIN introduce the match with a "Green and Gold army" of six drunks at King O'Malleys earlier in the evening I was less than impressed. For those who were...
