for a private dinner... While Julia tried to slip away of guess who's coming to dinner. We're now going to play a round it was Rupert Murdoch's editors. wasn't hard to work out And what did they talk about?? Do you know how to bone a duck? a knife but I don't know how. Well, I guess you do it with The point of the knife into the head between the eyes. so simple. Oh, Julia, you make it sound simply when he was boned.

As he did this week Malcolm weighed back into the carbon debate at the National Press Club. a war on science to some extent. I do think that there has been A scientific workability. That's my motto. opinion seriously and respectfully. It's important to treat scientific But... It's also important to watch your back after that. You can literally hear the knives being sharpened. Brilliant as always. That made me feel quite hungry. They used so much butter in movie. Your cholesterol rises. They used so much butter in that It reminded of us how Tony Abbott was. It was a much cooler, calmer, quieter week. It wasn't as heightened and as aggressive as previous weeks. The Government would be happy that Tony Abbott was off the scene. It was a return to the normality of the political debate we

have known before the last year or so. It does show how dominant Tony Abbott S if you think about it, there is only Joe Hockey on the economy and Scott Morrison in immigration, really, who are making their own strides individually. Apart from that, it's all Abbott, all the time. All Abbott, all the time, that's his klog and. How will this play out politically? financial mess on our hands. We've got another serious

This is a big one. It is really a mess, but a mess made in America and also in Europe, with the downgrading of the US credit rating and also the debt crisis in Europe. Now it's attacking our stock market and there is only limited things Governments can do to regulator protect equities markets. Most of it has been done after the GFSC. There isn't a lot structurally the Government can do. This is a moment for jaw boning to instil confidence in the markets from the big superannuation companies down to mum and dad investors. If this gets on a head of team, as some are saying it will, there is a question whether our Government will be able to provide a second round of stimulus spending. If it does, it will put its strategy of returning to surplus in 2013 at risk. Politically for the Government it is a big problem because structurally there is little they can do and it's all about confidence and do the people have that confidence in them to believe they can see it through. For the confidence in them to believe that opposition, the markers are very clear. If China gets infected by this contagion, we will be in real trouble because it's holding us at the moment. You will hear the trouble because it's holding us up vulnerability of our economy, you will hear debt attacks, but also you will hear this is no time for a carbon tax when the economy is under external threat, Sam. We will let you prepare for your butt ri-filled lunch.
