I am told by my Perth informant that Tony Abbott is no longer wearing his wedding ring during Question Time. Since I am on a train at present passing through Dimboola and Nhill and unable to check, I ask those interested in such things to turn on SkyNews and report back to me.
If it is true the reason is well known to the entire Press Gallery who have been inclined to suppress it and emphasise instead Kevin Rudd’s delusions of grandeur; but they know what they know.
It would be good I guess if they pursued the usual Murdoch process of a politician’s ruination. Or perhaps not good.
But Rupert has clearly forbidden it, and so it goes.
