By AR - You could imagine the hilarity among the leftards if John Howard mentioned discussing real world matters such as terrorism with George Bush, "over a strong cup of tea". There would be howls of derision, comparisons of Janette and Hyacinth Bucket getting out the Royal Doulton tea-sets. So when Kevin Rudd describes a conversation with Alarming Al Gore as:
"We talked a lot about climate change and some of the important things that need to be done globally," Rudd said. "We'll resume that conversation in Bali over a strong cup of tea or something stronger."Will we hear any leftards invoking imagery of Nero fiddling or in this case, drinking tea, while Rome burns? No way, they'll lap this up.
