    Default Matt Price - RIP

    Matt Price you will be sadly missed.

    I loved your balance on The Insiders.

    I loved your insights on The Offsiders.

    I loved your pieces in "The Australian" about the goings on inside the corridors of Parliament House.

    And most of all I loved your passion for sport, particularly AFL ........and your beloved Freo.

    Your columns made me laugh out loud on many occasions and your ability to see the "good and bad" on both sides of the political spectrum was very refreshing.

    Thankyou very much.

    Who is going to take your place? Certainly not Patrick Smith!!!

    For those of you who don't know of him.........Australian journalism lost a real talent on the weekend. Diagnosed with brain tumors in September. Died age 45 (only 10 years older than me).

    It is an appropriate time to reflect that no matter how hectic things get, and how many punches are thrown our way, we need to keep in the forefront of our minds how special and fragile our lives are.

    Well said Duckman and Broadside - tragedy for his young family, big loss for those of us who enjoyed his work so much.

    only the good die young (?) - probably incorrect in general - but correct in his case

    and yep 46 is far too young

    Thanks, Duckman, for posting this very appropriate and sad comment.
    I never met Matt Price but so enjoyed his contributions to the political scene.
    Some deaths seem to really have a great impact. Perhaps it was something about his smile which has put him so much in my mind since hearing of his death.

    Comments/messages can be left here:


    Such messages might be some small comfort to his family.

    I enjoyed Matt's appearances on the Insiders. I was always impressed with his ability to present a balanced, logical argument amid others who could only rant.

    Thanks for posting that, 2020. Just so hard to believe he's dead.
    Strangely enough, last night I had a dream about him: he wasn't dead at all but had staged a recovery. Sitting in a hospital bed surrounded by his family with that same wide smile.

    y'welcome Julia

    his own words written to his friends...
    "no pithy punchline
    life is fragile
    hug your loved ones"

    to his kids, I would say:-

    "There will I know be moments of sadness and great loss -
    but if you can put beside that
    all the good times you have had together,
    I am sure
    that you will find
    that you have gained
    than you can ever lose"
