Jurassic Park meets Tales from the Crypt

“It paled a bit beside the world youth jamboree, but the thrilling news was that Labor’s elder statesmen have entered the fray. Graham “Whatever-it-takes” Richardson has reportedly joined the anti-Iemma forces. Barrie Unsworth is rounding up such giants of the past as John McBean and Michael Easson to support the Premier. This is not politics. It’s Jurassic Park.” 

Mike Carlton. Earlier, Joe Weller had written to the SMH with a similar point:

“Forget about the stars of the show at Iguanas Waterfront; when Graham Richardson is allowed to emerge from the crypt and walk with the politically still living, you know that the ALP has a problem. It is called relevance.”
