Given the theme of a new, major poll - Australians lack warmth for Bush – a few hearts beat a little faster with
“I have heard a whisper, a muffled, confused, hesitant, distant, unsure sort of a whisper, but a whisper nonetheless, that the President may yet cancel at the last minute.”
As to that poll, I intend to report more on that when I have had time to go through the raw data. But hey! Don’t worry, we Aussies generally love you yanks, it is your administration we have problems with.
So if George doesn’t pullout at the last minute, noting Laura has puled the pin on the trip, we are now guessing what the conference fancy dress will be this time. The national costume dress-up is usually the only reportable aspect of this gig. I have offered up my selection.
UPDATE: Bush 'sorry' for APEC pain
Having been informed that his presence will cause total disruption of host city
That would have to be one almighty apology. But I doubt he will manage to actually see much of the beautiful city.
