AUSTRALIAN LEFTY OF THE YEAR

The Australian of the Year award has become something of a joke:

Senator Leyonhjelm has slammed the Australian of the Year awards – calling them a “festival of political correctness”.

“In recent years, the Australian of the Year has been often awarded to the person who is most likely to lecture us about being racist, sexist or environmental vandals – if not all three,” he said.

“Many Australians are suffering from lecture fatigue, and will tune out from anything the winner has to say.”

It’s been a long slow slide since Jack Brabham.
