Presenting the one and only Mr Paul Keating – at his straight-shooting, scumbag-calling, merciless best.
Paul lets rip – on John Howard: 'The little desiccated coconut is under pressure and he is attacking anything he can get his hands on.'
On Peter Costello: 'The thing about poor old Costello is he is all tip and no iceberg.'
On John Hewson: '[His performance] is like being flogged with a warm lettuce.'
On Andrew Peacock: '…what we have here is an intellectual rust bucket.'
On Wilson Tuckey: '…you stupid foul-mouthed grub.'
On Tony Abbott: 'If Tony Abbott ends up the prime minister of Australia, you've got to say, God help us.'
And that's just a taste . . .

the book reminds me of all the great speeches Keating made in the parliament.
If a Keating fan , a must have . Pity the current parliament is not as eloquent nor as entertaining .
Something to read when the current Government gets too depressing
