  1. I have already Voted for Labor and the Greens, but i’ll still be watching, just to get a laugh out of
    Coalmo’s Spin on Climate Change and Renewable Energy.

    • Quoting someone on Q&A, referring to his old job with Tourism Aust. “Where the bloody hell are you?”. Just hoping they don’t import that hideous green screen set from TVW7, used last time. “National Press Club”. Good. Decent, stationary non-distracting. And the moderator doesn’t speak to the debaters with his back to them.
