You know things are bad when Chris Trotter bags you.

I have always admired Chris Trotter. It is something i struggle to understand within me. He is implacably opposed to almost everything I believe in, yet he never wavers.

Today it has the rancid, decaying smell of something that has been kept for far too long.
