March Online Retrospective

NEW STATUS
Following the announcement by the Prime Minister  I have advised Mr Abbottf my intention to use the title “Dame” in my formal name. This honour is taken as a gesture of non gender discrimination.Have begun to add to the wardrobe for public and private appearances.

Please note that all introductions from now on should use the full title of Dame Anthony Robertson of Woolloongabba. Conversations should only be initiated by the Dame and the correct greeting is “M’Lady”

Perhaps the reports of his poorly chosen phrase have brought on a change of heart. On his twitter feed Alain;s description of Brisbane reads: A beautiful dawn breaking over Brisbane: peaceful, serene, exotic.
But the bonus for me was even though I had missed the public talk and the chance to get a signed copy of his latest work, I got an apology from the man himself on my Facebook wall: Alain De Botton Dear Tony, I do apologise,99% of brisbane is terrific,it;s just there are a few things that went a bit wrong in the zoning of the cbd…
