man of stealing kisses

The other day John Howard bemoaned the fact that our society is getting more "voyeuristic", and yet lately we have been subjected to relentless scrutiny of the breakup of Mark Latham's first marriage and nobody really believes the PM has nothing to do with the dirt diggers, particularly since he has denied knowledge of it. That's an admission if ever there was one. But as Alan Ramsey suggests today, someone could just as easily turn the blowtorch on John Howard. I mean, who in Australia who has connections to either journos or pollies hasn't heard that rumour about which Ramsey hints, about the PM allegedly having a long-time mistress? (Not that it bears thinking about!) If that turns out to be true...well, family values my ass.
