Peter Garrett yesterday vs today

Wow, loved this piece in the SMH today looking at where Peter Garrett has come from to where he is now.

Perhaps a comparison might serve to illuminate. First some of the lyrics from “Blue Sky Mine”, written by Garrett:

The candy store paupers lie to the share holders / They’re crossing their fingers they pay the truth makers / The balance sheet is breaking up the sky“.

And then today’s rather less impulsive lyrical achievement:

“I am very proud of the comprehensive set of policies and proposed actions we put to the people of Australia in the election campaign, and I am very pleased and proud to be involved in implementing them.”

Strewth.

Still, I’m nonetheless impressed to have the Midnight Oil lead singer as the environment minister. Wish he’d do a Midnight Oil redux though. Arny the Governator still throws Terminator lines into his speeches in California, after all.
