Good to see Jeff Kennett back on page one this morning. It is his rightful place. Oh how we political journalists wish he had never gone.
Alas there's no political comeback involved. These days the former Liberal Premier concentrates on issues that really concern the people. As President of the Hawthorn Football Club he is playing in the big league but still standing up for his principles by copping a $5000 fine rather than kow tow to the game's authoritarian controllers who object to being told the truth. The offending Kennett remarks that officials were now "almost bigger than the game" would be supported by every AFL and NRL who knows that the whistle blowers rob their team every weekend.
