OK. Monckton had a major brain meltdown and he has been hit by some buses - boo hoo.
But even so. STIKE UP THE BAND!
Monckton apologised for something. He Apologised! Just let that role around you brain for a few seconds.
Feels weird doesn't it! Is that light at the end of the tunnel I just glimpsed.
Now we need an email campaign about how Garnaut should sue him for Slander. Maybe flood the other Mad Monk's office with questions about how he can even consider still speaking at the same event if Monckton is allowed in.
Here is a real fantasy - Monckton's tour has to be cancelled. OK its fantasy, but it sure has a great ring to it.
Can Monckton be sued if he's already apologized?
Might be a jurisdiction issue. Slander occured outside Oz of an Ozzie citizen.
Even just the threat of it though. Something about hoisting and petards
