Politicians come in three types – straight men, fixers and maddies. … I am certainly a maddie!
That or something like it was the grab used on radio to promote the final episode of the Keating interviews with Kerry O’Brien.
I was left wishing for more. I’d be interested in what he has to say about anything, but his comments on Labor since his time would have been especially interesting – even on Gillard/Rudd!
Laying the groundwork for the annual APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting will be an enduring achievement.
We were left with a haunting glimpse into the personal cost to Keating’s family life.

I can still remember the fateful day on 2 March, 1996. I was mowing a lawn in Milton. There was daylight saving and by 5.20pm our time it was clear that an era had ended. Labor retained only 49 seats though the 2PP ended up 46.37/53.63. This time it was 46.51/53.49. The furniture disappears very quickly when you get into that zone!
