Don't mention the war - a mean spirited appeal to envy in the Murdoch tabloid instead

When short of a yarn to fill page one, beating one up about over paid fat cats is always a good stand by. But how remarkable that Sydney's Sunday Telegraph thought it necessary to add up the pension costs to taxpayers of former Governors General to fill its space this morning. There is, after all, that little yarn available exposing the horrors of the Iraq war. But then that is probably a sensitive subject for an organisation whose boss once suggested the Iraq War would result in the great benefit of oil at $20 a barrel.
