Howard roasted



ADELAIDE — Howard was given a roasting on March 25 by opponents who had gathered to raise funds for Green Left Weekly. After Howard cracked under the pressure and nearly fell off the spit, debates ensued as to whether he had become twisted because of his numerous political backflips or because of his gutless, spineless nature. Beazley Burgers were available for those who preferred the soft option. Meanwhile the Costello Jello was waiting in the wings, as was the Please Explain Pudding and Ruddock Rock Cakes, which, unlike their namesakes, went down a treat. Being fed up with the mainstream political diet, "Howard Roasters" raised toasts to the success of the M1 protests and the newly formed Socialist Alliance.
