Well, the new series of Auntie's Q & A has started with a bang.
Last night's opening gambit might well have been sub-titled "Bionic Bulldog Savages Swan".
The two protagonists pretty well hogged the entire proceedings - not unsurprisingly - and I thought the Bulldog actually did a good job considering the flak around the Costello issue.
IMO he has definitely raised the bar for the Coalition regarding it being able to more credibly debate the economic performance of the KRuddite Party, now that the hapless and totally inept Ms Bishop has slunk off to the relative anonimity of "Foreign Affairs".
Fair dinkum, I was ROTFLMAO like the rest of the audience at Swannie's repeated use of "substantial" as a descriptor of whatever the government is trying to do, ie "substantial reforms", "substantial economic stimulus", "substantial boost for jobs" etc, etc, etc. What a substantial goose he is!
Next Program's panellists

Not sure what Sabrina will bring to the en-mass debate?
