The ABC's 7.30 just got steamy.
Steamy, but nice steamy, know what I mean?
Nice, as in Doris Day singing:
Once I had a secret love/ That lived within the heart of me/ All too soon my secret love/ Became impatient to be free/ So I told a friendly star [of David?]/ The way that dreamers often do/ Just how wonderful you are/ And why I'm so in love with you...
Sophie McNeill: "The relationship between one of Australia's richest men and the Prime Minister of Israel can be traced back to a star-studded dinner held in Mr Netanyahu's honour in March 2014.

Sophie McNeil: "The relationship quickly developed. Mr Packer purchased a million-dollar beachfront mansion in Israel, right next door to the private home of Mr Netanyahu... Then, in March 2015, James Packer was a surprise guest in the audience as Mr Netanyahu addressed the US Congress in Washington... [He] then appeared at another speech Mr Netanyahu gave to the UN General Assembly, standing with senior Israeli officials and the Netanyahu family. Questions began to be asked."
Sophie McNeill: "Raviv Drucker is one of Israel's most acclaimed investigative journalists... His report on James Packer's relationship with the Prime Minister caused shockwaves across Israel. The report alleged the Australian billionaire showered lavish treatment on the Prime Minister's family, particularly on his 25-year-old son, Yair..."
Ain't love grand?
Doris, if you please?
Now I shout it from the highest hills/ Even told the golden daffodils/ At last my heart's an open door/ And my secret loves's no secret anymore...
