In which I conclude our new visitor is doomed to disappointment:
Heard you on AFR yesterday and was taken with your tone. You seem to have a great understanding of how things really work without the usual cockiness that accompanies that.
J, I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed the interview. You’re certainly welcome to bookmark this blog and hang out as often as you like. I hope you enjoy the ongoing discourse. However, full disclosure requires me to inform you that I do not suffer from what a reasonable man would describe as a dearth of self-assurance. I am polite when making an appearance on other people’s shows and blogs, but this civility should probably not be taken as an absence of arrogance.
It’s probably just as well Bane already kicked it. This would totally have done him in. He would have died laughing.
