Interesting revelation from Andrew Bolt at the end of this morning’s Insiders program on the ABC. The all too common reiteration that global warming/climate change is a non-event was there, but thrown into his irrational approach to realities everyone else accepts was a claim that the ‘stolen generations’ have never existed. Rudd’s apology to these indigenous Australians earlier this year, which apparently helped to raise our PM into the ranks of the world’s top 100 most influential persons – thanks to Cate Blanchett, according to the Dolt – comes about as a direct result of an apology for events which never happened, to a generation of indigenous Australians which have never existed.

I’d be interested to know just how many indigenous Australians were watching, and what their reactions might be to hearing that the PM is riding to fame & glory on the back of an issue which even John Howard accepted, but Andrew Bolt thinks is a complete fabrication.
