DAVID Williamson, tall playwright and unsuccessful re-cycler, offers our PM some more of the heartfelt advice so popular with her Fairfax publicists and ABC-sponsored apologists:
... Tough it out with Gillard and hope the Bulldog in her starts to emerge....
Having moved to Sydney some time ago, Williamson demonstrates that he is as out of touch with Melbourne's winter sporting scene as with worthwhile metaphor. Like his pinup PM, the Bulldogs began their season amidst many confident predictions of glory in September. Since then, they have failed, disappointed and collapsed. Only yesterday they went to Sydney and were whipped once again.
If Gillard is to draw inspiration from her favourite football team, coach Rodney Eade will be its source.
He will be fired, and not before time, very soon indeed.
