The public has a right to know


I see Derryn Hinch has been suffering from unspecified health problems that have cause him to have a near-death experience he apparently couldn't resist using for self-publicity. But he ain't sayin' what caused it.

Given how much too much information we already have about Derryn's inner workings thanks to the horrid All-Bran ads, I can only assume that there's something wrong with his gut which if disclosed would give rise to cruel jokes about the product he endorses.

But hey, the public has a right to know. Cue loudmouthed shock jock burrowing through unsavoury sources. A little sauce for the gander.

Crook kidneys and poisoned blood, apparently.

Ah yes, but the crook kidneys were caused by the poisoned blood, and according to the Age link he is being elaborately coy about saying what caused the poisoned blood. DAH da-DAH daaaa ...

Well it wasn't me.

No, me neither, though it's true that I've never, ever forgiven Hinch for his horrible little contribution to the relentless grinding-down of Don Dunstan (the usual: the breaking of a media agreement not to announce publicly that DD's wife Adele Koh was dying of cancer) that culminated in his resignation as Premier of SA.

Us tortoiseshell have long memory. Cat never forget, never forgive.
