An entire country in a tinnie

Iron skin John:

Prime Minister John Howard says he is not embarrassed by the fact Australian of the Year Tim Flannery remains a strong critic of his government's environmental record.

Professor Flannery, who won the honour yesterday, has been warning about sustainability and the risk of climate change for decades and says the government has been "dragging the chain" on climate change.

"Does it embarrass me? No it doesn't," Mr Howard told Southern Cross Broadcasting today.

Yes, why would the leader of our country acknowledge that he has f*cked up. Not done these days. Everyone, except a few ideological shills like crazy Bolt, have accepted and have a fair appreciation of the environmental issues we face. Not ol'John. Walks to a different beat he does.
