That’s just a sneak preview; further thoughts on the whole sorry affair in the next issue of the Spectator Australia, available at fine newsagents across the Antipodes from next Friday.

Speaking of the Speccie, better late than never here’s a link to my argument that Australians really ought to forget mucking about with Halloween and embrace American Thanksgiving as their own.
