a black and white issue
I guess I (and every other Australian in the blogosphere) will say something about the governor-general in the next few days. For now I confess I am amazed that a government insisting that Geoff Clark stand down during the civil trial of a rape allegation did not immediately apply the same standard to Peter Hollingworth. I do not think the rape allegation alters in any way the case for the governor-general to go. I do think a double standard was in force until the prime minister's press conference and I am glad that is no longer the case.
