blamebrampton: 15th century woodcut of a hound (Default)
The most senior Australian Catholic is currently appearing before our Royal Commission on child sex abuse via video link from Rome. He has been declared too ill to travel from the Vatican to Melbourne by his private doctor, despite having flown out to Australia for a private function a few weeks before he was last due to appear.

So Tim Minchin, one of our better songwriters has penned the following little ditty about the situation. Miranda Devine, a 'journalist' in one of the Murdoch papers has complained that this song is intolerable. But she's been totally silent on the subject of Pell at the very least turning an inexcusable blind eye to child rape during his career. Odd sense of priorities.

Subsequently, I am mentioning this song every chance I get. It's a beauty.
