In the wake of the Brendan Nelson flap.

At last - the dirty truth!

John Howard PM:

"It's not about oil, and it's not
about energy security. The reason
that Australia is spending billions
of dollars, and making Oz citizens
targets for Islamic hatred has
nothing to do with oil."

"Indeed it has nothing to do with
Iraq, or America, or the UK, or Israel,
or any of the reasons that seem so
obvious to everyone - even to myself!"

(A long pause, and then the bombshell.)

"We are only there for the dirt!"
