Better you tell your sister about springtails than discuss politics … I recently sent my younger sister a blistering email about her having informed me, as if it were deus ex machina, that the ONLY Aussie politician for whom I have respect is and always has been a slum landlord: but I discovered that her source for this erroneous fact is the bloody Murdoch press - and I have nothing but contempt for every arm of Murdoch’s empire.
I cannot accept the fact that my hugely intelligent (otherwise) sister is a right-wing voter.
So yes, correspond with her in detail about tiny leaping creatures, Vicki - and keep off politics. I have spoken.
But no, it’s just the ludicrous nonsense - some people call it ‘trivia’ - that jams what I laughingly refer to as my brain …
