Please Go Quietly into that Good Night, Julia

I see that the martyred St Julia has emerged from the swimming pool of her $1.8m beach-side Adelaide home long enough to pronounce on the issue of Australian spooks listening in on the Indonesian president's phone, boring us all rigid with polliewaffle about the need for 'checks and balances' and the 'robustness' of 'the system'.

Really now, why should anyone take her seriously on this - or any other - issue in light of her sycophantic response to the discovery that the Americans were listening in on her phone:

"If my telephone was intercepted when I was prime minister, all that anybody would have heard would have been praise for President Obama."

Julia, please, please, just take your halo and your Jerusalem Prize and go, alright?
