I seem to have forgotten to tell you that episode 43 of Stilgherrian Live is online for your viewing pleasure. It has been for nearly two weeks! So does that mean there’s another episode tonight? It does.
This means I need to do a number of things.
First, I need to tell you that last program’s “Cnut of the Week” finalists were: 4th Miranda Devine (18%); equal 2nd Jane Schulze and Associated Press, and The Cuffs Guy (24% each); 1st The Liberal Party Generally (34%).
Second, I need to tell you that…
Nominations are now open for this week’s “Cnut of the Week”.
Actually, it’s “Cnut of the Fortnight”, I think, since there’s bound to have been some special work in the 14 days since the last program.
Please remember the rules. We’re looking for people, organisations or other entities who are futilely trying to hold back the tide of change. It has to be something in the news in the last fortnight, and you have to explain yourself. Nominees have to be not merely doing bad things, but failing to notice or adapt to the change around them.
If you don’t link your nomination to the “tide of change” thing and just whinge about something bad that’s happened, I will ridicule you mercilessly. You have been warned.
As always, nominations close at 8.30pm Sydney time sharp, and you must nominate on the website to count.
Who do you nominate, and why?
Speaking of 8.30pm, you should also watch my friend Nick Hodge‘s program @nickhodge — yes, the program is named the same as his Twitter identity — ‘cos he’s doing something special for the forthcoming Anzac Day.
