Howard has certainly shifted our moral compass, he has burnt our soul, he has played to the basics of human instincts, he has ... turned our sense of fairness and egalitarianism on its head
Hmmm, although I'm wondering if he meant to say "basest of human instincts".

"Would I write a better book? Of course I would. I am a better writer and I know more," he said.
Forget Shorten, forget
A labor leader with confidence? *Swoon*
