blog Just when you think you’ve seen it all in Australia’s mediasphere — all the crazy and technically illiterate pronouncements from radio shock jocks, all the denouncements of Labor’s NBN policy from right-wing bloggers and so on — something new appears to prove that still more can be dredged from the depths. Greens Communications Spokesperson Scott Ludlam’s speech in the Senate last week challenging Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been lauded around the nation for hitting the mark of popular sentiment. However, according to Daily Telegraph commentator Miranda Devine, Ludlam got it all wrong. Devine writes (we recommend you click here for the full article, accompanied by a caricature of Ludlam’s face along the lines of the famous painting The Scream):
“Scott Ludlam’s “viral” hate speech against Tony Abbott signified the moment the Left finally lost its marbles: 10.08pm, Monday March 3, 2014 … Sorry Senator, it was never your country. We had an election last year and the Abbott government was elected with a whopping majority. The twitterati might have gone weak at the knees for Ludlum but he might as well have been howling at the moon.”
