  1. Just caught up on last night’s Kitchen Cabinet and it was wonderful episode that again goes to the heart of your previous article on this show.

    You didn’t have to be a Greens supporter, but just sit back and wallow in the realisation that we don’t walk a mile in the other person’s shoe. A real life insight into the disadvantages that we are often blind too. And what a wonderful young man he was too,

      1. I don’t think it was a party-political issue – the presence of any political figure tends to pull down overall ratings. I remember well when A Current Affair were asked why they did not promote political interviews and the reply was that any such story cut the ratings in half. The viewers like something a bit lighter, unless the appearance is on the Sky After Dark news programs.

          1. That is entirely reasonable and Ten’s flow of content across the night has never been great, hence the call from at least some of us for them to dispense with their 2.5 hour news and current affairs block – it is just too much each night.
