A warped view

This letter left on the cutting room floor at The Age...

Dear Editor,
If Clive Hamilton and others on the loony left are so concerned about Gina Rinehart influencing editorial direction at Fairfax (Mining in a new vein, 2/2), perhaps they should dig deep into their own pockets, put their combined money where their mouth is, and get Clive a seat on the board. However, given that no one on the loony left has any entrepreneurial nous, relying as they do on government handouts of one sort or another, perhaps Clive can just organise a suspension of democracy, ban Gina from Fairfax and in the process stop anyone else from thinking anything that conflicts with Hamilton's own warped world view.
