I’ve seen some pretty pathetic media performances, but Brendan Nelson’s on Wednesday’s 7.30 Report was the epitome. Poor Kerry O’Brien, try as he might, just couldn’t get Nelson to answer the questions.
Nelson just reverted to the tried and trusted bridging statement: “what’s really important, Kerry …” then proceeded to rattle of what he wanted to say, which, in essence, was nothing.
Interesting to note Nelson advertised for a press secretary three weeks ago. I doubt whether anyone could save this lame-duck leader. Now, who’s got the guts to openly run against him?
