News flash. You're never going to believe it. But John Howard, who is still gobbling at the tax payer teat (like all ex PMs it should be noted) thanks to his unfeasibly large pension, won't be in attendance at parliament when the big long awaited sorry is said.
He must be sick or something. Poor man. I hope he has a bex and a good lie down.
What the fuck is bex anyway? Ah, I see.
This is a kewl additional link on Bex.
It notes the following;
Bex powders were an Australian icon. They were a strong analgesic, comprising phenacetin, aspirin and caffeine Bex powders were the housewife’s drug of choice in the 1950's and 1960's until they were shown to be highly addictive and responsible for causing kidney disease when taken in large doses.
Here's hoping he takes large doses...
