P. J. Harvey sings live…
I’d been planning to write on the truly appalling line of questioning NSW Bar Association President and barrister for Tara Anglican School for Girls, Ian Harrison SC, launched during a recent court case where an 18 year old woman alleged that she had been raped three years ago while on a school trip to Italy.
However, I’ve got nothing to add to the excellent op-ed piece by Julia Baird in today’s SMH. I’ve been frequently critical of the quality of media commentary, and we’ve recently been vigorously debating Miranda Devine’s credentials in this regard. So I thought I’d give some recognition where it’s due – Julia Baird is a superb columnist and always worth reading.
The context for the picture of the equally excellent P. J. Harvey can be found at the beginning of Ms Baird’s column.
