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 . . .
