Last night, the greatest PM that never was, Peter Costello made a spectacular and hilarious appearance on Lateline. Well, when I say hilarious – Peter laughed at his own jokes.
My favourite part was when Costello made an aside that Rudd’s essay in Monthly Essay will lift the sales. Now – I wonder how Peter’s biography is going?
Anyway – the point of this post is – are we seeing the return of the un-annointed king to the political spotlight? Does he think that he should be the rightfull leader of the Liberal party?
I wonder if we are heading for a Howard/Peacock type of power struggle where Peter is playing John (ex-treasurer, unloved by his own party) and Malcolm is playing Andrew (suave, rich, believes his own publicity).
Anyway – let’s keep all of the comment about Costello in this thread.
