Bill Lawry

Why Kevin Rudd failed

Any leader of any country has reached their used-by date when parodies are indistinguishable from the real thing. Once comics have a suitable amount of material it becomes very hard to look at the leader without the parody running through your head. This video, from last year’s Walkley Awards, surely signalled the beginning of the end for K-Rudd.

Sadly, despite the 12th Man’s efforts, Bill Lawry still commentates.

Benaud steps down

Sad. But now I guess we’ll see how accurate the 12th Man’s portrayal of the handover process was.

I’ll never be able to think of Benaud as anything but a constipated turtle thanks to someone who made that comment in my youth, but cricket won’t be the same without him.

Oh well, as long as Bill Lawry doesn’t get more air time out of this I’ll be ok.
