extraordinary level of fearCronulla Henson Hanson Wik Haneef The boats Panic shows all of David Marr’s characteristic insight uick wit and brilliant prose as he cuts through the froth and fury that have kept Australia simmering over the last fifteen years I don t always agree with David Marr when he speaks or writes in the public forum At times I find his pontificating just a tad smug and self righteous worthy of the kind of epithets applied to him by some of his opponents on the Right At times some of the topics he chooses to pontificate about are in my estimation at least red herringsThat
