In a lively blog discussion the other day, Andrew
One of the posters (sadly - not I) described him as a "conflict entrepeneur".
Pretty accurate, I reckon.
To introduce a metaphor - Bolt (and others of his ilk) remind me of country shows when I was a kid …..of the spruiker who stood outside the boxing tent beating the drum.
Not much skill or intelligence required – just the capacity to maintain a steady relentless beat….
Anyway, without stretching the metaphor too far, it provides a context for some great music.
And whilst I'm talking about Bolt, below are a few examples of what your eyes are not allowed to see - examples of comment I've made on his blog which this exponent of free speech has censored.
|This is in response to Bolt having a little jolly about wall-to-wall Coalition governments.|
|This was in response to criticism of Tim Wilson's appointment.|
It fascinates me that a conflict entrepreneur is afraid of a humble part time blogger.
Still, it provides a great excuse to post Paul Kelly.
