He wrote about it, talked about, put brush and pencil to paper about it and railed about it with wry wit and insight.

I wonder if this was Bill’s final comment on the hypocrisies of political correctness, the loss of Aussie irreverence and our characteristic, not so subtle, tongue ‘out of the cheek’ identity.

With no other way to make his point and to drive the nail home into the coffin of 18c and all its sycophants, he gave his life.
