I’m tempted to apply for a spot on the ABC Advisory Council. I reckon I’d have something worthwhile to contribute. But am I close enough to their ideal of a fine upstanding citizen to fit with the others? “It’s your ABC,” but only for middle-class whites, plus a token Asian who’s a member of various committees so that’s OK.

You will never know you are good enough for them unless you try. Mind you, it’s me talking.
@’Pong: Oh, it’s not about “good enough”. I know from my time spent on the SA Community Broadcasting Association and the AIDS Council of SA that I can work at an advisory board level and investigate and report on community opinion. And i certainly know broadcasting.
It’s more about whether the current version of the ABC as an adult-minding service for middle-class baby boomers is an organisation that’d appreciate what I have to say.
Then again, maybe that’s the point.
