Hello, My name is Warren Entsch

Sid just got a telephone call... so I thought I'd reprint it here...


"Hello, My name is Warren Entsch... I'm taking the unprecedented step of phoning you personally..."

Surely he can't want to sue me over the 'lovely couple' quip? I find myself breaking out into a sweat.

"...using a recorded message to ask you personally to vote for Charlie McKillop... blah, blah, blah".

Phew. A close call!


The phone rings again later.

This time, a pleasant young woman is on the line, explaining she doesn't get paid any longer when the cafe's not busy, thanks to Work Choices.

I feel sorry for her. Maybe I could lend her a fiver... but is she for real?

She anticipates my query...

"I'm not an actor... I'm talking about real things that happened to me, a real person. Authorized by me... blah, blah, blah".

Whoever wins the election, Telstra shareholders won't be missing out.
