I remember back in the eighties when Malcolm Fraser & his treasurer little Johnnie were thrown out hearing Eric Bogle lamenting at the Troubadour that he was torn two ways - at last the bastards were gone but he had lost one third of his repertoire of political songs. (There was a beaut under the title of "Batman & Boy Blunder"

If only we could be rid of him now for such a price - Eric has many more good songs still to be written that he could afford to sacrifice his current play list!!
